binary count wouldn't stop anything from flashing. after flashing a stock rom with odin again, make sure to go directory into recovery to wipe data/factory reset and then boot up the phone.

Re: [Q] Help please possible brick :(
Don't use rom manager to flash a rom. Odin back to stock (Samsung devices are special that way) or use one of the root injected firmwares in one of the stickies in the development section. Once you get set up, download goo manager from the play store (you must be rooted to use it). From the menu of goo manager install recovery script, you will then have twrp recovery installed. Then follow the instructions in the op for the rom you want to flash. If this seems foreign to you then Odin back to stock and stay there. If you want to continue to modify your device read and read some more. Tony stark has a thread with all the information you need. Just Google search.

It is easy once you do it once. First time can be overwhelming. I'm a visual learner so I found a YouTube video for the phone and followed it step by step. Now I'm almost flashing them in my sleep. :thumbup:

Re: [Q] Help please possible brick :(
So I know I'm rooted right now on my s3 so do I have to go back to stock and reboot it before I flash a rom? Or can I just do it like in the video now and flash it from recovery mode
