    So I bricked my phone by installing TWRP. And wiped off the cache and whatever else and removed the OS from my phone. So needless to say I was out of luck.

    Worst part was that I couldnt get adb sideload to work and I didnt have a microsd card handy.

    So I decided to look into the device manager. And i noticed that there is a Samsung SPH-L300 that doesnt have a driver. I already had the samsung drivers installed so couldnt figure out why this wasnt working.

    Eventually, i found the adb drivers for nexus and add the following two lines so that the phone could be read. And wallah adb sideload started working.

    The two lines I added :
    ;S3 Virgin Media
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D001&REV_0228
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D001

    Since I'm a new user I cant seem to attach links.
    so replace spaces with dots.

    The SPH-L300 is a Sprint/VM Samsung Galaxy Victory LTE not a Virgin Mobile Galaxy S3. You should post your comment in the Sprint or Virgin Mobile Forum Threads for your device as this thread is strictly for the Galaxy S3 device on Virgin Mobile.

    You don't actually state which model you have, just what you saw in device manager. Did, or do you think your PC misidentified your phone?
