Default SGH-i527 stuck in recovery

I've got a SGH-i527 that when I turn it on it goes into Odin mode with the yellow triangle saying there was a problem with the upgrade and to connect it to Kies. Kies 3 will not work with it, and if I open Kies 2 it says it's connecting forever.

If I hold down volume and home button and start it up, and try to use Odin3 with AutoReboot and F. Reset Time check and flash I527UCUAMK2_I527ATTAMK2_I527UCUAMK2_HOME.tar.md5 it errors out and the device has SW REV CHECK FAIL : Fused 4 > Binary 3.


Someone help me out here?

Here's a little more info that might help. I tried booting the device without holding the buttons just a second ago, and this is what is on the screen.

Image size too large! W:1080, H:1920
display image fail
Secure Fail: Kernel

Ok, so I think I'm having issues because I don't have the right firmware.

From what I've been reading is that there isn't a firmware released for the i527 for AT&T correct? Or can someone point me in the direction for that ROM.

From what I'm gathering there is no TAR available for 442 so we can't flash in Odin. I don't know about you but I can't get to recovery either.

I have 2 megas in my shop right now that the same thing happened to them. Now they cannot be restored through ODIN and Kies says that the model/SN is incorrect.
