I have a Samsung galaxy s3 and I was trying to upgrade the firmware to jelly bean 4.2 with odin v3.07 I followed all the instructions, put the phone in download mode and all that but it didn’t install the firmware and now my phone is just dead, it appears that it doesn’t have any OS at all, when I try to turn it on it just appears the battery charging but it doesn’t appear the percentage of it, it appears an empty battery like it has no charge at all, I put another battery with full charge and it does the same, I also connect it to the power outlet and the LED doesn’t even turn on, also when I connect it to the computer it doesn’t do anything, LED turned off, the screen black and it doesn’t do anything at all. I tried to put it on download mode again and even recovery mode but it just doesn’t do anything. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this and install again the OS?
Jelly Bean 4.2 update

enid_150, you may have to just redo your install process. Some things to check as you go along...
-Was the phone put into download mode?
-Did you remember to check auto-reboot and uncheck ALL the other options, including repartition?
-Did you remember to download a custom recovery .tar file (CWM or TWRP)? Click "PDA" and check the appropriate custom recovery file?
If you are able to do all this, it should reboot your phone, and the custom recovery file will be installed. From here, you can root your phone. Good luck!

Is that right, the latest update of Android keeps the device hanging a lot?. If yes is that suitable to swipe from the previous version?
