THIS IMAGE WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU BRICKED AFTER UPGRADING TO 4.3 MK3. IT WILL NOT WORK IF YOU WERE ON 4.1.2 JELLYBEAN OR ANYTHING ELSE.

4.3 ONLY


People are looking for this everywhere so I thought a new thread was necessary.

Huge thanks to @thenexusgeneration for dumping this from his new device!!

Enjoy!

I'll be uploading this to my site soon and other mirrors will be available as it is the only currently working image

so how do people go about using this, backup/restore via recovery menu? asking cause I'm sure you're going to be asked by people who bricked their phones and searching the net for a fix

People who find this will know what to do with it. But no, you don't restore because this fix will unbrick a completely DEAD device. One that won't even power on

Guide is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2369125

Over on the DeBrick thread, none of the images (4.3 or otherwise) would work for me, and others with 32gb 4.3 phones. I jtag repaired mine, and made this 32gb image. I re-broke the bootloader on the phone to test it and it works. It requires a 32gb sdcard, I used an off brand class 2 to test with, and it worked the very first time.

So anyone with a 4.3 32gb, try this debrick image:

32gb_43_knox_debrick.img.7z - 26.91 MB (128 MB decompressed)

if you haven't had any luck with anything else.

Debrick images are independent of the internal storage size.

I would think it wouldn't matter but it does. I have gone over every sites to try to unbrick my phone but none have worked except this. Even with the following method it wouldn't work with 16GB sdcard. Only with 32GB worked for me. Just a little background on my phone setup:

Sprint GS3 16GB 4.3 VPUCMK3
Rooted with CF Rooting method
Bricked by loading NeatROM v3.6 for I9300

That wasn't what I was referring to, I was referring to the phones storage size not the sdcard's size.

My bad, guess I've been going over the various method that require sdcard to be the same as the phone storage size and had no luck with it.
