Default [Q] Device does not boot

Hello,

Just had issue with my Samsung galaxy S3.
A lot of sudden death and device freezes.

I installed the "[ROM][364MB][NB7]Revolutionary S5 V2 - Like your new Galaxy S5? [23RD MAR][FLYING][AVAILABLE]"
rom and since then i cannot boot my device.
After the installation was finished and just click the reboot option and its stucked on the boot screen(Samsung Galaxy s3 image)

Is it what's called a brick?
Is there any way to fix that issue?

I know i can get into recovery.
I'm having trouble with the sd card, I guess it's related cause it was working well before having issue with the device.

Any suggestion from you guys?

Yes sir.

I'm just trying to play with the adb tool and install a different rom, no result yet.

Do you know another way?

Sure. You don't need adb for installing a rom!

Perform a wipe

copy CUSTOMROM.zip* to your sdcard

install it via recovery

be happy again

*you can choose any custom rom compatible to your device.

Don't use adb sideload pls. Just go to recovery --> format sd-card --> mount sd to computer --> copy rom.zip to sdcard manually. You dont need adb sideload :P

What Recovery Version do you use actually?

]Do You have the SIII gt-i9300?

If you have unbranded SIII GT-i9300 --> This is the best recovery avaiable PhilZ advanced cwm 6.19.3 . You can flash it using Odin 3.07

Latest usb drivers --> Samsung USB drivers

Your solution is good.

I installed this recovery and managed to mount my sd card and then install a different rom.

Thing I still have the sudden death issue.
I understood that any rom with version of 4.1.2 and above has that relevant fixes but its just didn't solve my issue.

Any suggestion about that?
