Default [HOW TO] Unbrick your phone from flashing an International gsm boot image

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.

Ok...Looks like I'm having problems. I did the root process, seemed to work fine. Booted up fine. Installed Busybox, etc. After that, I rebooted and it won't go past the "Samsung Galaxy SIII" screen. Not responsive. I have to pull the battery. I wiped data and factor reset via CWM, but still won't boot. Installed this, nothing.

Any ideas?

Have you unplugged the usb cable, pulled the battery, replaced it then tried to boot into download mode?

If you have flashed a gsm rom then you are going to need to flash custom recovery with external sd support then copy a cwm rom across and restore it.
