    Samsung Galaxy S3 brick while installing Glamour S5 ROM

    I was trying to install Glamour S5 ROM on Samsung Galaxy S3. But it got bricked. The device is stuck on boot animation. It is not moving ahead. I tried to turn it on but the device stuck on the same. I want my phone back. I want the old firmware. How to restore that.

    I am quite sure the service center people are not going to fix this. I have to root the phone for installing Glamour S5 ROM and I had done everything properly. I have kept all the files and installed custom recovery. But still the device got brick.

    You cannot restore the old firmware unless you find the right rom for your phone. This is the factory official rom and there are different one on the web based on your region. You have to find the build number of your stock rom and through that you can locate the same and install it. This will be a quick process. There are chances that the rom which you are trying to install is not proper or having some damage file. That cause the phone to brick. You can try re-installing the same or use some other rom.

    Always backup the stock rom before installing custom rom. There are so many apps available for that.

    After rooting you can use Rom Manager app. This app is also nice to backup your existing firmware and you can restore that quiet easily. Now you had brick your phone.

    Start with using a rom which works. There are many ROMs for Samsung Galaxy S3. Android 4.4.2 KitKat GlamourS5 is a new rom which is available. Try this. Use the same recovery to install the same. This will surely work.
