Unhappy [Q] Hard Bricked Tmobile Galaxy S3?

Yes, I too hard bricked my t999 but funny thing is I've didn't flash any roms. Here's what happened, I was already on Wicked V5 rom, I went to the galaxys3root.com and downloaded MIUI for Tmobile gs3. When I tried to restart my phone to recovery mode the phone just turned off and never turn on again. Someone please help me. I don't really have time to send my phone to Texas, does anyone know any other ways to fix this? Is there service around NJ or Philly area?

Yes, I didn't flash any roms, at least any wrong ones, I've only downloaded the miui for tmobile version but phone turned off when I tried to reboot into recovery, I've tried to boot into download by taking out battery and pressing volume down+home+power and plugging battery but nothing happens..

Send it for JTAG repair or use a jig. Your phone might not be bricked, but there is something wrong with it.

DONATE TO ME
Is it plugged in when you try to power on? Try it both unplugged and plugged if you havent already.
Also try holding power for about 10-20 seconds.
