  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. 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.
  3. Hello I was wondering about what would happen if I install a different firmware on my SIII. I mean a firmware of another carrier like verizon. I know that our phone only works with cdma and LTE nets but. What could happen if I install a rom or firmware made for other phone that works with cmda nets too? I made this question because I had a galaxy s2 and several times I installed on it firmwares of other regions or carriers and nothing wrong happened.
  4. We enjoy Android for what it is. Open source goodness. We're coming from Verizon with a Droid Incredible 2. Had no problems with the process of rooting and installing Cyanogenmod which we loved for zero bloatware. After all we would be just fine with android stock out of the box like god intended but for whatever reason few companies get that the customer’s liberty is paramount, not their ability to strike padded deals over drinks and golf games…not that drinks or golf games are bad, mind you. Admitedly I am pretty much a n00b and no matter how much I read (2 days now on this phone) a lot of this just doesn’t make sense. I was hoping someone here sees an inherent problem or can help me figure this out with a step by step. We're trying to get this either booting in to Cyanogenmod...or back to stock with no counts so I can take it back and just buy a friggin pantech. (kidding about the pantech btw) We’ve tried just about everything to install either the Cyanogen nightlys or the new monthly. We have root. Wiped data/Factory reset + wipe cache + wiped Dalvik Cache, install from zip a compressed file from HERE via both internal memory and SD card (formatted both ways) but we get this message every time: Installing update… Assert failed getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “ d2usc” || getprop(“ ==”d2usc” E:Error in /sdcard/cm-10-20121027-NIGHTLY-d2usc. Zip (Status 7) Installation aborted.

  5. AOSP ICS for Awesome[iCS]Sauce Close up: FEATURING: Custom ICS Blue Notification Icons • ICS Inspired Toggles Transparent Notification Background • Left Justified Blue Clock As you can probably tell, this is more for my own personal use than an active development. I'm currently teaching myself how to work with android (coming from NO programming experience, solely graphic design). A GIANT thank you to RMarkwald for his Tutorial on apktool and to jpaulwaite for his ROM and helping me edit it. DOWNLOAD: AICS Notification DO NOT FLASH WITH CWM. REQUIRES ROOT I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE. REQUIREMENTS: Root AccessRoot Explorer (or other root file explorer). Stock Rom or AICS v3Base & Uv10 (tested). STEPS: 1) Put AICS Notification on your sdcard. 2) With Root Explorer, extract the zip. 3) Click "Go to extracted" you should be left with SystemUI.apk inside the folder "AICS Notification Bar" 4) Copy the new SystemUI.apk and navigate to system/app. Rename your current SystemUI.apk files by adding "bak" after ".apk" to create backups. 4a) NOW paste the new SystemUI.apk and fix permissions (rw-r-r) and change ownership to 0-root, 0-root. 5) Reboot and enjoy. ] If you like this, and it works, please leave a comment!

  6. PLACE DISCUSSION AND SUPPORT FOR ROM HERE ROM THREAD: http://teamuscellula...-preview-build/ Just a reminder: I'm the messenger boy. I just instigated and tested! =p All credit for this ROM goes to the original PA team, notta, RMarkwald, jpaulwaite, sageDieu and noobnl. ALL I DID WAS BUG THEM TO DO IT! (Repeatedly) Also. Feature requests will be ignored (by us). Updates will coincide with PA Official and include those features and fixes. As this is a port of an actively developed ROM, don't expect to see ANYTHING that's not incorperated into the PA nightlies. If you absolutely have to have something, direct requests to PA themselves. Common Issues: symlink: some symlinks failed when flashing. Echo, auto-brightness, general CM10 stuff. Helpful Paranoid Settings for Apps: AppName | Size | Layout | Force | Large Screen Will add more as you guys find them.
  7. Google Wallet?

    Does anyone know if USCC plans to enable Google Wallet on this bad boy?
  8. THANKS TO OUR VERY OWN notta, RMarkwald, jpaulwaite, sageDieu and noobnl. ORIGINAL ROM CREDIT TO: Paranoid Android Follow Paranoid Android officially on: Facebook : https://www.facebook...idgoogleTwitter : G+ : This is an ongoing developer project to make way for a modification that will entirely transform your device, but retain the aesthetics and the experience of your phone. I know you've seen tablet mode roms before, they change two lines in your build.prop file which you could easily edit yourself in seconds and maybe throw a keyboard in there to make it work better. Tablet mode is a start, but it ain't enough. It has potential, but it's wasted the moment you try to stuff a full blown tablet into your poor phone. Yet we all know our high res phones can very well handle more than silly 1-column layouts. So the magic must be in between somewhere, a place that Google must have overlooked and left blank. Yes, this rom strives to drop your apps into tablet mode, but it won't stop there, it will reshape and redefine Jellybean to make it all a useful addition and not just a cute novelty. FEATURES: Phone, Tablet, and Phablet (Nexus 7) environments • Per-app DPI & Layout settings • NavBar toggle • CM10 Theme Chooser • Much, much more. FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK. STANDARD DISCLAIMER APPLIES. Just a reminder: I'm the messenger boy. I just instigated and tested! =p All credit for this ROM goes to the original PA team, notta, RMarkwald, jpaulwaite, sageDieu and noobnl. ALL I DID WAS BUG THEM TO DO IT! (Repeatedly) How to: Set the workspace mode. How to: Change an app's layout and size. Change log: Google Play Wallpapers: Here Mods: Themed MMS, SystemUI, Framework - RMarkwald
