just no ones smart enough to mkes tools to fix

People who are smart enough know their limits and know when to stop before it's too late.

Keep that in mind when you get another phone.

With tax and shipping it will only cost around $20. http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B0013AV9TW/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?qid=1421694322&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70&dpPl=1&dpID=51nWL1bmu7L&ref=plSrch I didnt read any part of this thread besides the original post and OPs reply saying that buying an SD card isnt an option because of the expensive cost of "$70-80" which is untrue, as you can see.

I've spent the last hour or two reading up on how to un-brick a hard-bricked S3 and nothing point...There is an article I came across that uses a different method, though the author openly admits he has yet to test this on his phone, but it may be a starting point. The author also claims he has files for the Snapdragon S4 Dual Core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm 'MSM8960' chipset. No guarantees any of this will work and you do so at your own risk. http://cellphonetrackers.org/qhsusb_dload-fix-qualcomm-soc.html http://cellphonetrackers.org/wp-content/uploads/8x60_msimage.mbn_.txt MicroSD card method - the AT&T variant looks to be the same processor-wise, minus the 'M' designation, ask anyway to be certain. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2345860

I've spent the last hour or two reading up on how to un-brick a hard-bricked S3 and nothing point...Michael claims the S3 is under a year old with a locked bootloader, the latter part of which I seriously doubt, but I have read several reports where people have fubar'd their device and Samsung issues the customer a new phone, so it could go either way.

I've spent the last hour or two reading up on how to un-brick a hard-bricked S3 and nothing point...Would it even be covered under warranty?

I've spent the last hour or two reading up on how to un-brick a hard-bricked S3 and nothing points to using .xml files - period. JTAG is the preferred method and I've already explained that to you. You might be able to build the jig, but you need the micro-code to access the board/chip and specialized software that rebuilds the partition structure and places the device in download mode. Cut your losses and either send your device in for warranty (I'm getting tired of telling you this now for the third time) or let this be a learning experience and buy yourself a new phone. No one at Koodo or those that volunteer their time to help out can be held responsible for your actions. Please check your attitude at the door, thank you.

Plenty of people come here daily and leave with solutions so I'm going to assume its just a anomaly that we can't help you fix what YOU did to YOUR device. I'm sorry you feel that way about the help we tried to provide for your modified device. Next time leave it stock so you won't have these issues. Signed, the dumb people who tried to help you.

The bootloader is toast and the sdcard solution is hit and miss. The only other options are to find someone proficient with JTAG(ing) the device which will cost you money or send the device in for warranty, which would be my recommendation. The QPST bootloader files you need are supplied to the manufacturer and are not intended for re-distribution to end users.
