    Have you tried a different USB cable, it will not show up on your computer, but it should show up in the Oden software.

    You could try a Jig and force the phone into download mode. They only cost a couple of pounds off Ebay...

    Nope. The phone could be completely dead but for the price of a jig, its definately worth a punt.
    Good luck, hope you get it fixed :beer:

    P.s. has anyone seen the same kind of zip the OP used for the international s3?
    Seems like a handy tool (unless you have the knox bootloader)
