Default Just hard bricked my brand new Galaxy S3



Ugh.. If you are into rooting this phone, be careful. I tried to root it following a guide that was not confirmed to be working with the latest version of Jellybean 4.1.2. As soon as I flashed the bootchain, it never booted back to life. I tried everything I knew to make it turn on. After failing, horribly, I sent it to a shop in Texas that repairs hard bricked phones using a JTAG method. This, most of the times, brings the phones back to life. Turns out that mine is bricked beyond repair ! The file I used messed up the EMMC controller and there is no way to repair that. The only fixes are to install a new system board or have Verizon replace the phone. I can't face palm myself enough!

The company I work for paid full retail price for this phone after I bricked my Motorola Razr last Friday. I received the new phone on Tuesday and on Wednesday I bricked it lol I had to play stupid and thankfully Verizon is sending a replacement. I want to root this phone and install a custom ROM so bad but after all this, I'm just leaving it stock.

So you damage a product and then claim (via omission) that it was a manufacturing defect in order to get a free replacement? In some circles that would be called fraud.

What has happened to taking responsibility for ones own actions?

You are right and that would be the honest thing to do but, I'm not paying $708 for a phone Just wanted to vent a little and warn others if they are thinking about rooting the Galaxy S3. It's frustrating, I've flashed custom ROMs for years, different phones, with no mayor issues, I was always able to fix them myself. I could even fix my Galaxy if I really tried but meh.

Maybe quit dicking around with your employer's property and buy your own if you want to try anything risky? Novel concept, I know.

If you bricked 2 phone in that short of a time frame, then you are not rooting your phone correctly. Please ensure the root is compatible with the phone latest software update as they change often. You can always pay certain store to root it for you for a small fee.

Lol, you know what the funny thing is? All of the guys in my team have company phones and all of us root and install custom ROMS on our phones, even my 2 managers have their phones rooted, one of them is the one ordering the replacement

xjdesertfox: Lucky you! There is a guide over at XDA that is confirmed to work for JB 4.1.2. The one I used on s3forums.com was outdated and only worked with the previous version of JB. I'm not trying it again though, I hate not having a phone.

Well, for the Razr, I initially did it on a Windows box. I decided to go back to stock and I used my Mac. Something went wrong while it was flashing, it just stopped communicating with my laptop. I unplugged the phone after a minute or 2 of it not responding and, there you go, bricked phone

You are what those of us in IT call "the root of an ***-ton of work."

Most Samsung devices can't be hard-bricked easily, just soft-bricked, I think they call it.

Download mode (ODIN to factory, then reroot)?

Totally crazy thought.

Here's another. Maybe my comment has nothing to do with the tech, but rather his willingness to commit fraud.

"I had to play stupid..."

Crazy thoughts indeed!

No fraud intended. Changing the software does not let you change providers (if that is what you are TRYING to get at) as that is called unlocking, but offers more stability, and less bloat, with a basic (not BS) interface without running two (as in without running LauncherPro, & TWLauncher too in the case of the SK4g sucking memory with TWLauncher).

I bought it. I downloaded some apps. The phone works great,and I'm happy with it. No need whatsoever to dick it up by jailbreaking it.

There is a reason those phones don't come with a newer version of the Android OS... they haven't been tested or don't work with them!

Also same reason they are not supported!

Rooting a phone that isn't yours is begging for the unemployment line!

Verizon is the carrier?
Did you check to see if the md5 of the rom matched the one that was posted in the guide?

If you can get into download mode on the S3. There is still hope!

Ah, yes, fraud. How do you know fraud was committed? Is it fraud to say that you installed something on your phone, now it's broken, and ask Verizon to send you a new one? Way to jump to conclusions there.

Or perhaps he had the insurance plan.

So yes, your comment was all about 'interest in tech' as well as jumping to silly conclusions while at the same time demonstrating why you'd be a really crappy guy to work for.

Lol guys, my company doesn't really have budget for now and we love technology so, spending on it is not a problem, so I don't see myself or my team, getting fired any time soon. After I bricked my Razr, the CTO just said "Ok, what phone would you like?" Plus we get new phones, computers, whatever we need to be more efficient or when stuff becomes outdated/breaks. Anyways, it is completely dead, my S3. The EMMC controller is busted so it doesn't even turn on, at all. The guide I was following was one of those "root all" kind of guides, not really confirmed for the latest JB. The bootchain I loaded was not compatible so it bricked it. Fraud, is such a mean strong word. I guess I am cheating by not telling them I broke it but, I don't care so yeah... Oh and we do have insurance for them.

Let me start by saying I root my phones. I've tinkered with all of my cell phones going all the way back to the days when you had to flash and flex your moto phone and mess with hex tables.

Having said that I find it amusing what most people do with a rooted phone.

Bam, rooted
Bam, install Titanium backup ... because everyone says to
Booyah, install SetCpu. Hmm, stock kernal is running at max speed already, but hey I'm rooted.
Ka-pow!, install a tethering app. Yeah, take that carrier! Hmm, i'm not on an unlimited plan and turning on tether sucks my battery then a street walker on the clock.
Zing!, install a 100 other apps I never use past the first hour after I've installed them.


I tell anyone who asks (and yes, you didnt ask but you posted on a public forum so deal with it ) to only root their phone if they want to play with full fledged STABLE roms. And to only do this if this isn't their primary phone.

Rooting voids warranty and the insurance plan, but you knew that.


Anyone that thinks taking unnecessary risks with his employer's equipment in an effort to turn it into a toy is demonstrating why they are a really crappy person to have as an employee.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons for rooting a phone other than to 'turn it into a toy'. Thanks for exemplifying the kind of backwards attitude that many good tech people don't like working for.

Also, show me where in the Asurion TOC where rooting specifically voids the warranty. Hint: It's not there. It does have a section so overly broad as to be entirely unenforceable (section i), so that's not applicable.

Assuming that you are right and it was a legitimate business reason that OP rooted and broke his boss's $700 communication tool, he should just take it to his boss and and inform him that he needs a new one. That’s what a responsible employee would do. A company needs to be appraised of the condition of their assets. /thread


That is of course assuming that he was not turning company property into a toy and was authorized to root it.

Of course if he was not authorized to root the company property and rooteded it anyway, whether he damaged it or not he really is not a "good tech person" if the company is in a contract, rooting the phone is in violation of that contract.

But you knew that.

Did you miss the part where he said his boss and all other members of the team have rooted phones?

Also, as they paid full retail value, rooting the phone *isn't* a violation of their contract. Read for a minute instead of being so damn judgemental. Sheesh.
