IMPORTANT !!! Be Prepared To Fix A Hard Brick On Your Galaxy S III

I have not done this before and have not tested this method, do this at your own risk!!!

Hi,

A few months ago I hard bricked my Galaxy S II into an unfixable situation the only fix being replacing the motherboard.

More info: HERE

While looking for a fix I encountered this thread: HERE

This thread contained a leaked confidential file from Samsung on how to fix a Bricked Galaxy S III. It wasn't relevant to me then, but now as an owner of a S3 I find this may be very useful when needed.

Attached to this post are three files needed for the fix.

1. (12-38)_GT-I9300_BRICKED.pdf.zip - The ZIP Contains the PDF with the detailed instructions of how to do the fix.

2. GT-I9300_Boot_Recovery.tar - A file needed for the fix.

3. Odin3v3.07.rar - A program needed for the fix.

In general the fix requires 5 things:

1) One normal I9300 phone(normally booted on)

2) External SD Card (Memory size should be 2GB or bigger.)

3) Odin3 v3.07.exe and Odin3.ini

4) GT-I9300_Boot_Recovery.tar

5) (12-38)_GT-I9300_BRICKED.pdf.zip

We already have requirements 3,4,5.

Requirement 2 can be acquired if we don't have it.

I just see one problem: If my Galaxy S3 is bricked and I don't just happen to have a friend who has one, how would I obtain requirement 1?

Answer:

We prepare our selves ahead of time by performing steps 1-12 that are mentioned in (12-38)_GT-I9300_BRICKED.pdf.zip, And by putting the external SD card safely in a drawer in a box in our room.

I have not done this before and have not tested this method, do this at your own risk!!!
