It seems my phone is bricked. From time to time it started reseting by itself, but I did not think too much about it (I realize this was a mistake). Then one day it stopped booting at all, and just stood in the i9300 screen. Tried with a factory reset but as soon as it tries to format, the phone resets itselfs.

I've had this phone for a long time, and tried to find out how I rooted it. As far as I know I used ODIN and the CF-Root-SGS3-v6.4. Tried re-rooting it, but it fails at the very beginning (the recovery part). I've read about some people using something like a PIT root or something, but it seems dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.

What can I do to fix my phone? As far as I know a simple factory reset could have helped, but the phone itselfs resets as soon as it starts. I usually just "google" all this stuff, but so far I'm unable to find anything useful.

PS: I also have the avast anti-theft-something-root. Could this app be the culprit?
