Hi guys,

On my phone I went to CWM and clicked reboot into recovery. However the phone can't go past the 'Samsung galaxy s3' start up bit. When I do volume down, home and power button it just goes into download mode and stays there. ANything I can do?

sprint?
Then download the one for sprint.

Looks like you're flashing the international i9300 odin packages.
this seems to be a soft brick. Just flash the one with odin from the Sprint Galaxy S3 forums.

Sir i have the same problem , my SGS3 is soft bricked ,cant go pass the samsung boot logo,tried the volup+home+pwr method to go the recovery but it just reverts back to the boot logo, i havent tried to flash the official stock rom for international version yet,i would like to try the one that you guys have used and worked, can someone pls provide a link so i can flash it via ODIN? thanks and its much appriciated .

im trying to download at this site http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9300 ... but there is a problem with their servers... BTW my region is in the philippines.

U can get stock rom for your phone on the official samsung site .I just had this happen to me. It was stuck on samsung logo and when I would try to get into recovery via 3button method phone would just power off and on and vibrate so after a while by luck looked down at my phone and it was in download mode so just had to use oden and flas a new recovery and a stock jb rom.

I think it's part of the uh sudden death thing with the pit dissapearing.

Try this at your own risk, but flashing the correct PIT? or it might be time for service center
