User Review - MobileTechVideos.com: Samsung Galaxy S III (I747) JTAG Brick Repair
Today I would like to post a review of a great service I used: GS3 JTAG Brick Repair
. As many members here, I consider myself an advanced user. I want more than what the stock phone offers and our amazing devs satisfy that urge. I've had no issues rooting my G2X in the past and did it for several friends who had the same phone. The GS3 was a different kind of beast for me. I felt confident when I was about to flash; I thought I did my homework... But then I made a BRICK. WTF?!? My heart dropped... I haven't even had this phone for a month!!! I voided my warranty and now this?!? FML....
What to do? Where to go for help? Buy another $600 phone?
After I wiped the snot and tears, I turned to Google. This is how I found MobileTechVideos. The service that I was in need of was the "Samsung Galaxy S III JTAG Brick Repair
." But I was impressed to find out that MTV
also provided " ROM / Root Upgrade Service
:" Not only would MTV
turn my brick back into a GS3 but they would complete what I had intended to accomplish in the first place! My complete order looked like this:
* JTAG Brick Repair
* ROM / Root Upgrade Service:
* Rush Processing
* USA Express Return Shipping
* I asked for ClockWorkMod and CM9 loaded
The total for my service came out to $105.00
I shipped my phone USPS priority with $700 insurance. Total: $15.35
I shipped on Aug 24th at 4:35 from Los Angeles. The phone arrived at JTAG Aug 26th. I received the phone at 10:30am on Aug 30th. Now that, my friends, is service. Yes, I know I paid for it but it went exactly as described on paper. I excitedly ripped open the package, popped in the battery and tried to start my phone... And tried again..... And again. I almost crapped myself.. WTF is going on?!?!? Ooooooooh... It helps to charge the battery... So 20min later, I powered my phone. Thank you JTAG
! I was overjoyed to see my phone power up with CM9! All the crappy/expensive backup plans fled my mind. No more insurance claim.. No more buying another phone... No more adding another line, getting a GS3 for $150, transferring the number, suspending the new account and paying an additional $10/month for 2 years.
JTAG FIXED MY BRICK
I would HIGHLY recommend the services of MobileTechVideos to anyone who is suffering from a hard bricked GS3 or just want a PRO to do the ROM / Root Upgrade Service
. With an advertised price of $30 for the ROM / Root Upgrade Service
, I will send all future phones to MobileTechVideos and save all headaches and give myself peace of mind that the phone WILL be rooted correctly the first time.
Now, for my ONLY gripe: return packaging. I would have liked to see my phone in more than just a padded envelope. I just picture the USPS workers playing "silent speed ball" with everything... If the phone was bubble wrapped and placed in a flat rated box, I would have felt better. The phone arrived without incident but this was the only aspect I have criticism for.
Thank you, JTAG, for an amazing service that saved my butt. I speak highly of your company to my friends and will recommend your services to anyone who is curious or needs your expertise.
