After doing some research it looks like I have to fix it through jtag.
I think I could do it, but you need some expensive jtag box that connects to the computer(It's called the Riff Box), but it would be cheaper if I just sent my phone into here it costs $60. Not ideal, but not a complete disaster either. Unless there is some other way to JTAG I am out of options.

Thanks.

Correct, quit wasting time looking for a fix, it is not there, I did the same, so send it to the link you have, Josh is good, he had my phone back in 3 days.

THE JIG WILL NOT WORK! I tried that also. The jig is for soft brick, to get you into download mode only. So if you can get into download mode, is the only solution. Send the phone for repair.

Exclamation BRICKED flashing correct rom!
Hey guys, I don't know if I'm the first one but I made sure I downloaded the proper rom (HighOnAndroid) for my T-Mobile GS3 and now it's bricked . What do I do now? It's not like this is my first time flashing a custom rom either.

When I plug the phone to my pc the device shows up as QHSUSB_DLOAD but there is no led for battery or anything. The only time I see the led is when I pull the battery out and plug the USB cable. Obviously the DOWNLOAD mode isn't working and from what I understand the only solution is to get it JTAGGED which isn't something I can do myself and need to send it to get serviced. This is gonna cost me $60 though...

Can anyone confirm and/or have any suggestions before I proceed?

Thank you XDA for the great service you provide!

Yeahhh, I just bricked my S3 as well. So, it does show up in device manager as "Unknown Device," do you guys thing I can still find a way to flash a correct kernel?

My mistake:
Flashing i9300 CM10 nightly
Flashing i9300 Siyah Kernel

Thoughts?

Dont take this the wrong way. Read,read,read the op a few times. Try using Odin to restore your phone. I dont own this device,but that's the most common fix I read around here,when people mess up.

is the Wind mobile T999 model compatible with the Tmo roms here?
I don't see any specific Wind or Mobilicty specific roms.
However, the forum I'm in says Tmobile, Wind, etc...

My buddy has a Wind s3, and I don't want to flash his on assumptions.

Ok found another way users can easily brick there device.

I'm not 100% sure about Odin for the PC but with Mobile Odin and a modded build.prop Mobile Odin will read the build.prop and setup the partition mapping according the the model it finds in the build.prop (Google Wallet Fix) thus flashing something with Mobile Odin will brick the device.

Also I can confirm mobiletechvideos can fix your S3 but if you have a hard brick call in for a warranty these phone are not 1 year old yet as long as you have no damage on the phone they will send you a new one.

Desktop Odin I believe pulls the partition info from the phone and not the build.prop but I could be wrong.


I have confirmed this with Chainfire...

Quote - Quite likely, you will brick your device so hard only a JTAG unit will be able to revive it. A service center will replace the mainboard (about half the price of a new device) to fix such a brick. I would strongly advise against making a program that writes raw partitions believe it's on a different phone than it really is.
