Well, @Eldrin I don't think we can guess where the problem is, it might be because of the custom ROM, Battery problem or both.

I would suggest first try checking the battery, I remembered a trick shared by AndroidPit user @Mobile Crackers Remove your battery, put it over the flat surface, and try to spin it. If it starts rotating then get ready to buy a new one, because the battery might be swollen and needs replacement, otherwise I try flashing the stock ROM over your S3. :angel:

you can tell if your phone's battery is bad by putting it on a flat surface and trying to "spin" it If it spins, supposedly the battery is swollen and needs to be replaced.

are you using a custom rom ?

disable antivirus from phone and pc
try different versions of odin
install latest version of samsung Usb drivers
use usb port behind the cpu
do not use an usb hub
first clear data and cache from recovery

make sure
Re-Partition-- Unchecked
Auto reboot and F-reset time checked

Your phone is rooted, you need to unroot to update your phone vie OTA
but flashing usually removes root
Download the latest firmware and flash it with odin
