okay so my s3 has some sort of virus on it and it wont start up now, it always gets stuck at the loading galaxy s3 logo and any attempts to turn the phone off just results in it turning back on and going back to the s3 logo.

i read online and some solutions are to put it into recovery mode and factory reset it. tried that but it wont go into recovery mode! however it will go into download mode. Also just to be sure, i have another s3 that works fine, i tried entering recovery mode on that and was able to do so just fine, so its not like im doing it wrong or anything

another solution i heard of was to "flash it via odin" or something like that. i dont know what any of this means since i dont this often so can someone help me with this? i dont even know where to start

so basically any solution you have is appreciated, thankyou
