        I did an uodate on my Samsung Galaxy S3 on Saturday and it has not turned on or worked since then! I have tried everything. Taking the battery out, trying to start it in safe mode but it won’t let me. I can get it to download mode but does nothing from there. It starts up to where the Samusung logo comes up then shuts off and keeps restarting but that is it. Please help!!! Thank you so much!

    Somthing I noticed but haven’t gotten further into is when the Samsung Galaxy GT-I9300 (better known as the “Samsung Galaxy S III”),is when the phone is off,when you start up the phone and hold the home button and up volume key in with the power button,it takes you to system recovery mode,from there it gives you the following options
    “Reboot now”
    “Apply update from ADB”
    “Apply update from external storage”
    “Wipe data/factory reset”
    “Wipe cache partition”
    “Apply update from cache”

    But like I said,I haven’t went further into it so it’s all I know about that but I think it should help some people having minor issuse with their S3 device’s,yet another I managed to stumble upon is basically the same steps to follow but instead of holding down the up volume key,hold down the “DOWN VOLUME KEY” , “POWER BUTTON” AND “HOME BUTTON” at the same time,this will then take you to the,witch I like to call the “Custom OS Download Options Menu”,but as far as I know,a custom “OS” can only be installed frome your pc or somthing in this line,but like I said in the beginning of my post,I haven’t mannaged to go into it further then that witch I know in my post but hopefully,this would help some of you out there,having a hard time with your device,and please do leave a comment if it helped or if you mannaged to go ito it further…
