  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. 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: 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.

  2. USCELLULAR SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 AND SLIMROMS GPS FIX FOR D2USC - SLIMKAT 4.4.4 8.20 WEEKLY... GOOD NEWS! GOOD NEWS! I have been on the last few 8.xx weeklies of slimkat and recieving cell service/signal and mobile data only after flashing imoyeson's leankernel V9.17, but getting no GPS functionality whatsoever. It was my understanding that to fix this, we would have to factory reset, format system, wipe cache and dalvik. Then, install the factory touchwiz rom from uscellular, get a GPS fix and install the slimkat 8.16 weekly or newer. For arguments sake, and for my sanity (didn't have a factory uscellular zip) - I performed the following and am currently getting cell service, mobile data and an accurate GPS Fix! 1. Factory reset, format system, wipe cache and dalvik 2. Installed 3. Installed 4. Setup WIFI connection, turned on GPS (google maps was already installed and did not setup Gmail account) ** Cell service, mobile data and an accurate GPS Fix working great (after stepping outside my metal office building) ** 4. Performed a WIPE CACHE AND DALVIK ONLY 5. Installed 6. Installed 7. Booted up and setup GMAIL Account without Backup and Restore option 8. Had to run PLAY STORE and accept agreement to INSTALL GOOGLE MAPS (was not on device for some reason) * I did run GPS TEST and cleared AGPS then Updated AGPS before installing MAPS, but I am not sure this did anything at all * ** At this point I had no Cell service/signal or mobile data (a known issue with Slimkat 8.x versions ** 9. Turned on Location services (left mode at hi-accuracy), stepped outside and started Google Maps 10. GOT AN ACCURATE GPS FIX! 11. Rebooted recovery 12. Installed Imoseyon's Leankernel for KitKat 9.17 - 13. Rebooted to system ** Cell service, mobile data and an accurate GPS Fix working great (after stepping outside my metal office building) ** Attached SCREENSHOTS and BUGREPORTS for our awesome developers - BUGREPORT and BUGREPORT bugreport 7.21.zipbugreport
  3. cm installer

    I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with the CM installer for the gs3 running 4.4.2. My phone is stock and has not been rooted. Just wondering if the Cm installer would work. Thanks
  4. 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!
  5. 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: . 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.
  6. I have an upgrade coming up on the 29th. I have the Motorola Electrify and ready for an upgrade. I've been looking at a few phones...and I'm having a hard time deciding what to get. I mostly use it for facebook, pictures, sometimes skype, and to keep up to date on sports as they happen. The phones that I'm looking at are: Samsung S3, S4, Mega Motorola Moto X HTC One Thank you in advance for all that respond. Greatly appreciated.
  7. I have recently updated via Odin to MD4 and rooted it via CWM Recovery. I uploaded a screenshot of some thing I noticed in Titanium that were uninstalled but I just kept because I didn't know what they were for? Could someone advise me on which I can delete or keep? Thanks! Ontabok
  8. Cant flash new roms?

    This started a while ago when I tried to update to a newer version of CM. It was installing and then said "installation aborted status 7" it also says something to the affect of ro=bootloader and asserts could not be verified. But now it does this when I try and flash any modern rom. So I am stuck on older versions of all the roms I want to use. I went back to stock and reflashed CM a while ago but that was before this problem. Any help is appreciated.
  9. Galaxy S3 Lockup?

    I have a Samsung SCH-R530U running 4.1.2 and I have been having a problem the whole time I've had it with it freezing/locking up. I have to pull the battery every time just to shut it down! I was having a problem of it restarting randomly when it still had 4.1.1? I've posted before about reception issues and I'm just thinking this phone is a lemon! Any idea what I can do to remedy this? Anybody have any info on what causes it? Thanks in advance, Ontabok
  10. i bit the bullet and installed CyanogenMod 10.1 with JellyBean 4.2. I like it, lots. However, I miss some of the stock ringtones that originally came with the phone. I have a complete backup with Titanium Backup Pro of my old rom apps and data. I also have access to a stock (non-rooted) phone. Is there any way I can pull the stock ringtones from my backup, from the other phone, or download from the Internet? As for the CyanogenMod, it is awesome. The ease of setting up a wireless tether is amazing! I am still a noobie with Android and expect I will be for some time. The installation of the new ROM and restoration of my apps took close to two days. I think next time it should be closer to 3-4 hours.
  11. So the question is the title. But I was talking about this method it works on the Verizon Galaxy S3, so why not our US Cellular one?
  12. NFC Problems

    Right after I flash A ROM or take it back to stock the NFC will work for about 5 Minutes but after that time If I try to turn on NFC it will automatically turn itself off as soon as I Press the button... Help Please... Let me know if you need more information
  13. I'm just going to leave this here... If you ever tried to tether with your SIII and you're not on a tethering plan, you may have noticed the device itself will yell at you and interrupt the tether. "CALL 611 AND GIVE US MOAR MONEYZ LIEK VERIZON". Now, I don't know about you, but since I have 2GB to spend however I darned well want, and the times I need to tether are infrequent, AND when I need to tether I REALLY need it, Like being stuck at teh airport. "NO, FORGET YOU BOINGO. NO 10 DOLLAH FO 2 HOUR YO WIFI. YOU TAUNT ME D:D:D:" Finding out my phone was booby trapped to prevent me from using my data as I want was rather annoying. So.. I banged around in my phone for an hour and got a solution. It turns out there is a program embedded in your phone called synchronous TEDC. It does the yelling and the interrupting. If you force close it from your task manager, you may still get a little yelling when you start up, but you are free to tether. This is all provided you are not planning on being silly and downloading gigabytes of "naughty pictures" at one time, that is. That will actually raise red flags at USCC. People who don't want to pay for wifi at the airport, but also don't want to root, you may now rejoice. Have teh fun times
  14. Please HELP!!!

    Hello all, Ive been a heavy flasher going through the mesmerize, electrify, GS2, aviator, electrify2, and now the GS3. I have never messed up a flash before or encountered problems. I tested a few Jelly bean roms for the GS3 and i found the liquid build to be the most reliable and stable. When i was on stock i used the GS3's encryption function for added security to keep a roomate out of my phone. I flashed the liquid build and then used the encryption feature and i started having data problems so i went to unencrypt it, when going to settings> security> encryption. However rather than it saying "unencrypt" like it should it only says "encrypt phone" which i have already done, when i click it nothing happens. I have went into recovery and tried multiple factory resets, tried reflashing stock/liquidbuild/other roms and it will not flash anything, have even tried odin and it will not work. Because it is encrypted it will not mount something and therefore i cannot reset the phone or flash anything, i either need a harder form of a reset or a way to make the liquid build fuctionalbility of unencrypting the device to work.If anyone has had this problem b4 or if you have any advice as to things to try i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much, you all are my last hope.
  15. Roam control on S3

    Has anyone ever used this program on Uscc ? It used to work beautifully on my HTC desire but I'm having no luck at all with the S3. Is there any way to force roaming on VZW or sprint ? I'm primarily interested in forcing roaming so I can use Net Monitor and see where VZW towers/Sprint Towers fall in conjunction with all the USCC towers I've mapped in the area and imported to google earth. Also it just fascinates me to compare USCC vs VZW in New Hampshire. So does anyone have a manner for doing this even if it is not using Roam Control. I'm rooted on stock Rom with the latest update. I'm getting the sense I will have to load a VZW prl manually into the phone. Anyone have any idea how to do this or thoughts ? Thanks.
  16. Google Wallet?

    Does anyone know if USCC plans to enable Google Wallet on this bad boy?
  17. Just checked the rebate tracker and it said I used the wrong form because I pre-ordered the phone before the beginning of the rebate period. This is going to be a hassle. Anyone else get this?
  18. Hello, my friend just got an s3 and they hooked their facebook account to the device and it seems like everytime someone updates their status or something her LED notification light starts blinking. Is there anyway to keep the LED light turned on for emails, missed calls, texts, etc... but DISABLE it somehow for only Facebook? I do not use Facebook or this would also drive me nuts, so I feel her pain.... Only option I see is to disable the LED totally. I don't see options to disable it for specific applications, I would think there's got to be some way to do it.
  19. Google wallet?

    Not available in your country or not supported by your carrier..? Just gonna take some time to add the S3 or why won't this work?
