    I have a rooted S3 with Axis ROM on it, and lately it's been not reading my SD card then suddenly it would not boot past the lockscreen (which was unusable). So I factory restored it via CWM v thinking I could simply reflash, but I am unable to mount my Ext_SD for some reason on my computer or my phone. So now I'm stuck with a $600 paperweight that only goes into recovery or download modes and shows no option for USB Mass Storage transfer. I'm not too familiar with sideloading but I REALLY need some help.

    If you have a card reader, then put your sd card in that & hook up to your pc & transfer zips that way

    You can flash back to stock with odin , since you can boot into download mode then your good to go. Just have to go back to stock and start fresh and as for your SD card then idk what you can do.

    To go back go to stock : http://androidforums.com/official-u...0m-return-stock-reset-your-flash-counter.html

    like zolo said ur not doomed u can use odin to flash bone stock. just choose your flavor and flash away. as far as the sd card..... i normally keep one backup reovery on internal memory just for such cases. if ur using twrp u could connect a usb flash drive via adapter, but chances are u dont have one. but try this wipe factory data which is just normal wipe then try to reboot and see if u can enter ur phone again. if not go through odin and put stock back on.

    Thanks guys! You're life savers :) I think it did kill my SD card which is unfortunate because I lost all my pictures and stuff, but at least I have a working phone. Thanks for both of you guys!
