    Ok? now what are you trying to do?
    Recently my galaxy s3 has crashed, due to the partition problem......

    I have crshed the /efs partition with some movement......
    when i entered recovery , the message ""cant mount /efs" popped up
    Now I really need to repartion my phone,because my phone stopped on the white word "GT-I9300"during boot,
    the samsung logo cant appear,means that it can't even find the firmware to boot.....

    If it stopped at the SAMSUNG logo, with"wipe data"can fix the problem,but mine just stopped at "GT-I9300" (kernel loading is fine,I can see my siyah kernel logo at boot ,but it cant find the rom)
    So I am clear that there will be no way to boot the phone until I repartition the phone,

    MY phone:
    International GT-I9300 32GB

    i am really afraid a wrong pit file for 16gb or 64gb will crash it, I need to use a right one,tks

    I see that you have asked about this problem on other forums, but did you find this link?
    According to the author (see messages) the procedure works for 16GB & 32GB S3.

    A better questions is why do you want a PIT file?
    Unless you have tried every other way possible to revive your phone, DO NOT use a PIT file.

    Hello,

    If you are affraid about using this or this .pit file, there is an simple solution : [ Login above or register to see download links. ].

    This software is very useful because it can bring you the precise .pit file you need.

    Its main usage is to provide the same flash tools like Odin, but for others O.S. (Mac, GNU/Linux, ...) and also Windows of course.

    But JellyBean is not supported well due to new partitions wich aren't supported. It a Gingerbread based. But in a close futur, there will be more and better support I hope soon... Otherwise, I test it on command line (but there is an GUI called heimdall-frontend) and it's working like a charm and as fast as light (tested on the Samsung Galaxy S: GT-I9000 and the Samsung Galaxy SL: GT-I9003).

    But mx.pit, as others pit doesn't get so much differences with other as Heimdall get an human readable pit support. So you're free to use any of those, it's just confusing to get 5 .pit file and I haven't got it yet why...

    Voilą!

    Good DAy sir. I recently purchased a I9300 Samsung galaxy S3

    A friend advised me to update the ROM on the phone and the Pit files.

    i Update the ROM via ODIN and that was successful
    Howeer after i updated the PIT file.
    the phone was stuck on a screen saying downloading.

    it was not the odin downloading screen as it did not have the writing to the top.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated
