  1. READ THROUGH FIRST BEFORE DOING. MAKE SURE IT APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. THREAD WAS WRITTEN FOR PEOPLE WHO WERE ON STOCK 4.3. ANYTHING BELOW 4.3 WILL NOT WORK WITH THESE FILES. SAME PROCESS, JUST NEED THE RIGHT FILES YOUR STOCK TOUCHWIZ VERSION. Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. Hey guys. If you're an idiot like me, you might have flashed the wrong firmware for your phone and now the Galaxy SIII is as useful as a brick. Well, you've come to the right place. I accidentally flashed the MD4 radio on my SCH-R530U. After countless hours of research I finally conceived a plan on how to revive the phone. Symptoms of a Soft Brick: Bootloops, Stuck at Galaxy SIII screen, uhh and other stuff where the display actually turns on. If it does any of these, wrong thread. Symptoms of a HARD BRICK (what you're probably here for): Power does nothing, no output to display, no download mode, no recovery mode, computer recognizes it as QHUSBLOAD or something like that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Let's get fixing. You'll need: 16 or 32GB CLASS 10 Non UHC-I MicroSD Card (complicity matches internal memory of the phone, although I used a 32GB SD card for a 16GB phone and it worked just fine), a hardbricked Galaxy SIII duh, a Windows PC with a SD Card reader, MicroSD to full size SD card adapter, proper files (included later), a wall charger, and time. I'm writing this thread to try and not have people go through hours of research to get their phone back. 1. Download all the required files. 2. Make sure that the SD card is class 10, non UHC-I (I used a SanDisk Ultra 32GB card), and has no files on it. ALL FILES ON THE SD CARD WILL BE OVERWRITTEN. 3. Unzip the Win32DiskImager program and run as administrator. YOU MUST BE AN ADMIN ON THE PC. 4. Put the MicroSD card into the Micro to full size adapter and plug it into the PC (if you haven't already). In the DiskImager program, click on the drop-down box under device, and select the SD card's drive letter. Mine was F: for example. 5. Click on the folder-looking icon and point it towards the file named "SCH-R530U_CND4_debrick.img" once downloaded. http://upload.teamuscellular.com/5Ig 6. Once you are sure that that is the drive letter click "write" and then "Yes". The write process should only take a couple of seconds to finish. Once finished, take out the MicroSD card from the adapter. 7. Open up the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Take any existing MicroSD for SIM card out as well as the battery. Put the SD card that we just formatted and insert it into the phone. Plug the phone in using the wall charger. The red LED should light up indicating that the phone still knows that the MicroUSB slot still exists. If there is no red LED, then this will probably not work. 8. Reinsert the battery. The phone may start up on it's own or you may have to hold down the power button. My phone started on it's own. If all goes right you should get output to the display and maybe boot into Android. If you were like me and flashed the wrong ROM, you're gonna need to flash a new one. 9. For the people that the phone booted into Android, you MUST have the SD card in your phone or else it will become unbootable again. Don't want to have to have the card in there 24/7? Keep reading. 10. For both the groups of wrong ROMs and anti SD booters, you'll have to flash the stock TouchWiz firmware. So backup your data (if there is any) and download this file: http://upload.teamuscellular.com/38m?d=1 11. This file will take people that were still running 4.3 and move them up to 4.4.2 KitKat. People that already had 4.4, this will work too. I was still on 4.3 because I rooted. 12. Open Odin Download: 13. REMOVE THE SD CARD FROM THE PHONE OR ELSE ODIN WILL WRITE THE BOOTLOADER ONTO THE SD CARD WHICH MEANS YOU'VE SUCCESSFULLY DID NOTHING YOU WANTED TO DO. 14. Press "start". No, not the Start Button. Start in Odin. Yeah I'm bad at this. 15. This will take several minutes to complete. Be patient. Do not touch the phone just to reduce the chance of something screwing up. 16. If Odin finishes and says "PASS!" in a green box, congratulations! You've just successfully unbricked your Samsung Galaxy SIII! (Yes you can boot without the SD card now too. If you want to keep the SD card as a "Oh sh*t I messed up" card, feel free. But you can use the card normally by using a free Windows program called Minitool Partition Wizard and make the card normal again by deleting all the small partitions and creating one big one.) If this helped you, you're welcome. If you wouldn't mind swinging by my YouTube channel and giving it a sub, it would be greatly appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6a_9cLDE_9KTBfvKGbpXxw Twitter: realZekTech Instagram: zek_tech Have a great day with your SIII!
  2. Hey all, I need to get my mk2 phone back to complete stock with or without root as long as I can root it again. I don't need to worry about an warranty issues if that makes a difference. I was just wondering what files I need and if I need to do anything special to the phone itself before I start the process.
  3. Hi, I'm not an Android expert, I want to get that out of the way. I'm also not a developer or coder of any sort. However, I want to put together a tutorial for rooting 4.3 MJA on the Galaxy S3. I want to do this because I recently decided to update to 4.3 on my Galaxy S3, and I had some difficulty rooting it. I spent too much time (more than I'm comfortable disclosing ) trying to get it rooted when I should have had it done in less than 10 minutes. This tutorial will likely look like it's more difficult that it really is. It's not a time consuming or difficult process; I'm just trying to be thorough. So, here's my first attempt at putting together a tutorial. If it's garbage, or if something is wrong or needs to be tweaked or corrected, I guess just reply to the thread or PM me or something and I'll get it changed. Any mod is free to fix anything as well. The last thing I want to do is to provide bad instructions to someone. Before you start however, you need to know a couple things: Installing a custom recovery will trip the Knox warranty flag. As of this writing, there is no way to undo this and there may never be a way to undo it. Triangle Away will NOT reset it. So you won't want to use this root method if you are concerned about your warranty status. We don't know for sure if Samsung is really concerned about this, but it's possible. As of this writing, I'm not aware of a way to root a US Cellular Galaxy S3 on 4.3 without tripping the Knox warranty flag. As with any tweaking, flashing, rooting, etc., you need to know that there is potential to render your device unusable. You undertake this task at your own risk. The authors of the software below, Team US Cellular, XDA, and myself cannot be held responsible if things go badly for you. You are solely responsible for whatever happens to your device. What you need: You need a custom recovery. I used CWM Touch, which is available for free right here http://upload.teamuscellular.com/310 at Team US Cellular. It is version 6.0.4.5, which appears to be the current version (as of 1-14-14) for our device according to the official page at http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager . The files on the official site are in the IMG format though, and those won't work with Odin. The file at Team US Cellular is a tar.md5 file which does work with Odin. I saved it to my desktop.Speaking of Odin, you'll need that to do the actual flashing. I believe 3.09 is the most current version according to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2189539 . I don't know if the OP there is the author or not. Regardless, you can get 3.07 here at Team US Cellular at http://teamuscellular.com/Forum/files/file/133-odin/ . I used 3.07 and did not have any issues, so I know that 3.07 will work. I saved this to my desktop as well.You will also need the Samsung USB Driver For Mobile Phones. I used version 1.5.5.0 because that's what I have. There is a 1.5.14.0 on the Samsung site. I don't know what the difference is. Here's the link to the page at Samsung http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/SCH-R530MBBUSC . If you get it there, you want the one that says "Device(Install),USB Driver...." There is also a version of the driver installer here on Team US Cellular, but it is an older version. I'd suggest using 1.5.14.0 from Samsung, and if that doesn't work for some reason, I could upload the 1.5.5.0 that I used if necessary. You should probably disconnect your phone from your PC if it's connected. Now download the file and run it. This should install the drivers you need. I don't know if a reboot is necessary, but it doesn't hurt.Lastly, you will need SuperSU. Here is the SuperSU thread at XDA http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053 . Here is the link to the recovery installable zip file for SuperSU http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu . Do NOT extract the zip file once it's downloaded. You put the entire zip file on your SD card and then install it from within your custom recovery. How to do it: Put the SuperSU zip file onto your SD card. I don't know if the directory matters for sure, but I put it into the root of my SD card. Either leave the card in the phone or put it back in if you took it out. You will need the card in the phone later on.Disconnect the phone from the PC if it's connected. I don't recall if I had USB debugging enabled on my phone or not, but I believe it was NOT enabled. It may not matter. Please reply if you read this and believe it to be incorrect. If you need USB debugging mode, here is how to get it. From the home screen, go into settings, then click on "more" at the top right of the screen. At the bottom, select "about device". Scroll down to "build number" and tap that a few times. This will unlock "developer options" in the previous menu. USB debugging is in the developer options menu.Go ahead and power off your phone. Extract the Odin zip file to a folder on your PC that you can easily access. I use my desktop. Create a folder on the desktop and name it whatever you want, I named it "Odin 3.07" and extract to that folder. You should have four files in the folder: the Odin executable, Odin3.ini, tmax.dll, and zlib.dll.Open Odin by double-clicking the executable. Click on YES if Windows' UAC prompts you.Now you need to put your phone into "download mode". Hold the POWER, HOME, and VOLUME DOWN buttons simultaneously. The phone should start up and go to a warning screen. Push VOLUME UP to continue to the actual download mode screen. If your phone booted normally, power it off again and then try again to get into download mode.Once you are in download mode, connect the phone to the PC. Around the top left side of the Odin window you should see it turn blue where it says ID:COM. It will also say "Added!!" in the message box.The "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" boxes should already be checked. Leave them checked. Make sure "Re-Partition" is NOT checked. Everything else should be unchecked as well, so leave them that way. I don't know what all of these do, particularly the F. Reset Time option. I'd be interested if someone posted what it and/or the other boxes do.Click the PDA button. Select your clockwork touch recovery tar.md5 file in the window that pops up. The message box in Odin will say that it is checking the file and should show "Checking MD5 finished Successfully.." followed by "Leave CS..".Click on START. The process should only take a few seconds. Once completed, it should say "PASS!" at the top left side of the Odin window, and it will be colored green where it says "PASS!".Your phone should now reboot on its own. If it boots correctly, go ahead and power off and put it into "recovery mode". To do this, hold the POWER, HOME, and VOLUME UP buttons simultaneously. If done correctly, you should see the Samsung Galaxy S3 logo and a blue guy below that.Next it will load the CWM Touch Recovery menu. From here, tap on "install zip".Next tap on "choose zip from /storage/sdcard1". It may freeze for a second, don't fret, it's loading the contents of the SD card.Now just scroll down to the SuperSU zip file that you copied to the card earlier. Tap on the SuperSU zip file. Select "Yes" to install it.You'll see some things scrolling by at the bottom of the screen. At the end it will say "- Done !" and "Install from sdcard complete".Select "go back" and then select "reboot system now". Let the phone boot normally.You'll see "android is updating" briefly during boot.This part is from memory as I've already seen/done this and can't reproduce it. You should see something from SuperSU about Knox being present on your device. It will say something about Knox annoying you with popups I believe and maybe something else. Regardless, you need to tell SuperSU that YES you want to disable Knox.You should now be rooted. If you want to verify, you can either try an app that requires root, or you can install Root Checker Basic from Google Play and it will tell you if you were successful or not. There are more than one of these apps available. I chose the one with the white box with a # sign (root command prompt) on it and a green check mark over that. It's authored by joeykrim. The others may work too, but that's the one I picked. Good Luck! =
  4. I have the jflteusc and a couple months ago my data randomly stopped working. I thought it may have been the ROM so i reflashed, clean flashed, clearened everything restored to backup and nothing worked. I restored to stock and still nothing and then i ended updating to mk2 and still nothing so i I called USCC and apparently the wrong SIM card number was registered to my phone and everything was working fine before but then I got it fixed and now I am stuck on MK2, is there any way to install a working custom recovery? I don't care if it trips knox or whatever I just want a custom rom.
  5. I was curious if anyone had success at rooting the most recent update? (4.3) I believe it's the MJA update? I've seen a couple of things about CF-Root working, but I wanted to consult the brains first. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  6. The official update for the USCC S3 has been released. You can either download it from your phone, download it from Samsung's site, or from USCC's site. *edit - I've had issues downloading the update from both Samsung and USCC. While installing the update on my pc it says something about not being able to extract some files. So now I'm going to try downloading it straight to my phone. *edit #2 - I did it from my phone and it seemed to work fine, so you may wish to just take that route. The only issue I've noticed thus far is that items you've downloaded keep appearing in the notification bar. I fixed it by going under appplications>all>downloads and clearing the cache. *edit #3 - Edited on 12/3/13 - It looks like Samsung finally released a working upgrade tool for 4.3. Here's the link: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/SCH-R530MBBUSC . I'm downloading it now, I'll post another edit when I've verified that it's working. *edit #4 - In regard to edit #3: Sorry, this updated file still doesn't work. It downloads as a zip file, and while trying to unzip it I get "Error 0x08004005: Unspecified Error". I've tried unzipping it 3 times, with default Windows and WinRAR and I've had no luck. Sorry.
  7. I've tried several different rooting methods for the recent 4.3 update (Kingo, CF Auto Root, and one other) and none gave me successful root access. If there is a method proven to be working (or one for me to test) then please let me know. I know CNexus at XDA has done this for Sprint so hopefully we're next.
  8. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=44213286 You can flash it over your Cyanogenmod 10.1 ROM safely, make sure you get the gapps for 4.3 though. No bugs that I've run across so far aside from using Font Installer (don't use it, it'll break your ROM and you'll have to reflash.) IR Blaster, MMS, Camera, etc. etc works perfectly. Make sure you go into the Dev Options and go to Root Access and select App and ADB and you'll be good to go. Can't think of much else to tell you guys. All credit goes to the bloke over at XDA, my buddy Stephen, and the 2 cents I tossed in there to help things a long a little. So you will get nightlies over there, though it's an AT&T ROM he complies for many devices. When CM catches up, you can just use the CM updater. Anyway, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
