    I did a hard rest on my tmobile galaxy s3, it gave some error like 'error reading..' blabla. some text messages in red, and just froze

    I took the battery out and restarted the phone, now it just froze and won't boot, and won't let me reset again

    what to do? what to do?

    It's using stock rom and hasn't been modified, I did sent the phone to samsung for repair twice, maybe they messed it up, but it's out of warranty already.

    Hello and welcome michaelscai:)

    Did you factory reset from the recovery or from the option in settings?

    Try to factory reset from recovery again:

    worst case, we can try to install the stock firmware via a program called ODIN.
    There may be a way to do it via Kies, but I have never used Kies:(
