I recently went through something similar; I hard bricked my phone (I deleted the check that made sure it was the right phone). I sent it to MobileTechVideos.com for JTag repair and they did a great job and brought the phone back to life (I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but seriously, they were awesome in just about every way).

However, they seemed to just restore it to the last boot-able state. That last state was not completely stable (I had tried installing the rom, then installed Google apps that matched my the rom but not what was originally installed, it booted but apps just didn't work, tried re-installing the rom, noticed that the rom install error'ed out, deleted the check for the correct cell phone, and then bricked it). So when I got the phone back, it was in the state with the bad Google apps; I had to go back and install the correct version.

Long story short, think back to exactly what state the phone was in before it was hard bricked, and try to work backwards from there.

Angry Qhsusb_dload for Tmobile T999 Fix

Hello,


I bricked my phone trying to put the International S4 Revolution rom on it. It had the qhsusb_dload driver request on the computer. It would not power on or connect to the computer. I tried everything and I could not get it into download mode. I tried a usb jig to no avail. After spending 2 nights trying to unbrick my Samsung Galaxy SGH T999 I finally was unable to unbrick it without using Ubuntu or Linux software.

I had trouble with those types of software because I could not fully understand the coding and my computer is a slower laptop from 2007 and it is very laggy and frustrating to use.

To unbrick my phone, I made a image loadable sd card with the debrick image from Tmobile. To do this I used my 16 gb sd card that I kept in my tablet. I copied all of the files off of it to a folder on my desktop and then I deleted everything off of the sd card. Then I quick formated the sd drive. I downloaded the Tmobile Debrick Image' Then I downloaded Win32 Disk Imager. I selected the image file of the debrick image and then selected the drive my sd card was on and then hit write.

I then took the sd card out of my tablet and I put it in my bricked phone. After 3 seconds my phone lit up and went into download mode where I flashed the stock Tmobile rom for my Samsung S3 T999 using Odin 3.07 and voila.. I am back in service. I created this post because I am a novice at this type of thing and none of your forums where able to help me. All of them kept persuading me to send it to JTAG for a fee. People try this first before you pay anyone.
