Anyone with a bricked phone from flashing the gsm boot image, flash this via Odin as a PDA.

It will flash a stock boot image back to your device.

1. Extract Odin files to a folder from the attachment.

How to get into Download Mode (For Odin)
1. Unplug the USB cable.
2. Shut down the phone.
3. Hold down the 'HOME' + 'VOLUME DOWN' buttons and press the 'POWER' button for about 2 seconds until a WARNING! Screen appears. Press the 'VOLUME UP' button to enter Download Mode.

2. Tick 'Auto Reboot' and 'F. Reset Time' in Odin and nothing else.

3. Download the boot image and load into Odin as a PDA.

4. Click on Start to flash the image.

DO NOT UNZIP THE BOOT TAR FILE, FLASH IT AS IT IS.

Mark.

Myn,

Are you on board with the SGS3? If so, then bro that just made me even happier I purchased this device!

Can't wait to see a Warm rom you cook up for this bad boy.

I really appreciate your work, Thanks man..

I am having the same problem...

When plugged into the computer in device manager it is listed as "QHSUSB_DLOAD"

Odin doesn't detect my device. I've tried pulling the battery and everything.

I can't get to boot loader, download mode, or anything...

Any tips or tricks to get it to boot?

Thanks
