Ugh... Screwed up my phone using the Wallet Installer. Someone Help!
Sorry for posting this.
I was trying to get Google Wallet on my phone, and of course it backfired. I noticed in my "About Phone" it said "Galaxy Nexus." I remember trying to restore my build.prop thru the app before, but I tried it again, this time clicking on "Verizon" and SIII, and I pressed build.prop and my phone has been endlessly trying to bootloop. I haven't been able to get past the "Samsung Galaxy SIII" menu with Cid on it.
My biggest problem is I'm running a Mac. I know theres a whole Odin process, I haven't even looked at, unfortunately. Typically, this phone doesn't read Macs well.
I backed up multiple ROMs thru recovery. I tried getting to the boot menu, pressing vol up+power and vol down+ power to no avail. I know there are countless threads on this, but if anyone could do me the kindness to show me the right thread to read and what I should look at, I would GREATLY appreciate it. I've been flashing forever and this is the first time this has happened to me.
I'd delete this post entirely, but I don't see an option where I can. Thought I'd post how I figured it out at least so when someone else does this, they know what to do.
I figured out how to boot into recovery from power off. You press and hold VOLUME DOWN + HOME. Then you press power and let go when the S-Screen comes on.
I've heard all GS3 flashers soft brick at some point, and I'm dreading the day I have to use Odin...
