Cry My Galaxy S3 Not Turning On

HEY YOU, YEAH YOU, I NEED YOUR HELP, WELL... NO, MY PHONE NEEDS YOUR HELP


>My Samsung Galaxy S3 sometimes just... goes nuts and while it's charging it not only doesn't charge but discharges. And possible solutions that I've tried are: Turn down the light of the screen, close/erase/disable some apps, ask mr. google... AND THERE'S WHERE I SCREWED IT UP EVEN MORE.

>You see, I founded a forum that says it might be some file that's bugged somehow in the framework-res.apk or something like that... Another forum explained HOW to change it:

forum.xda-developers. com/ galaxy-s3/ general/ fix-compiled-powerprofile-xml-file-to-t1732722


>BUT I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO ******* CHANGE THE APK CONTENTS FROM MY PHONE SO I COPIED THE NEW APK FILE IN THE SAME DIRECTORY AS THE ORIGINAL AND "COMBINED/REPLACE" THEM AND THEN MY PHONE GOES "BOOOOOOM"

>And then I realised that it might have screwed up all the original files, because there was nothing in the directory where the original files where before...and indeed I did...

>The phone then just freezes (like it sometimes does)... and resets, but when it was reseting, it was going very very slowly, like... 1/16x it's normal speed...

>Now the phone just doesn't turn on, the samsung logo appears, then the cooler samsung logo with the blue circle, and then it stops there, just with the <<SAMSUNG>> name on the screen as you can see in the picture.




WHAT CAN I DO? I don't wanna reset it back to fabric-settings, because I'd lose my files and stuff...

I thought about some way of maybe... accesing my /system/frameworks-res.apk...bla bla bla files from my computer, but I don't really know if changing that apk file to it's original form would fix it, or if that's even possible.

HELP GUYS

I don't own a S3,But I know if you go to altering internal OS files it could possibly screw things up.
And BTW,Resetting to factory defaults is not going to fix it,You modified your files.
So,You may very well be losing your files.Unless your files are on an SD Card,In that case you can use your computers card reader to get your file.
But this is the way I see it going,Unless someone else has a better method:
