Your phone seems to be soft bricked. Are the stock roms you downloaded .tar files or .md5 files? If they are .zip files or .rar files, uncompress them with 7zip. Did you put them in the PDA slot in ODIN?

@Amo5,

Sorry to be so late to answer your question, but I have been traveling out of town for the holiday.

Go to the Download Repository and get the latest stock distribution, I777UCMD8 Stock Binaries (Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean). Enter download mode and flash that, and see if the flash will complete. If the flash completes, but the phone does not boot past the splash screen, enter recovery and perform a wipe data/factory reset.

If the flash is not successful, your phone may have nand read/write corruption, so post back here with the results of the above, and I will post the instructions for clearing nand r/w corruption.

The problem MAY be NAND read/write corruption. It is also possible that you have a bad or flaky connection between the phone and the computer. Sometimes failed flash is due to USB cable or micro USB connector on the phone, or you may need to use a different USB port on the computer, or even another computer. If the problem is NAND read/write corruption, then the following should clear it.

Instructions to clear nand read/write corruption. Instructions are specific; do them in order, and don't skip.

Odin3 v1.85 is recommended.

1) Download the Tar version of Siyah 2.6.14 Kernel. Flash it in PDA. Without ticking Re-Partitioning

2) Flash the Tar.md5 of the full stock Gingerbread distribution from the Download Repository, I777UCKH7 including the bootloaders and everything, in the PDA slot.

3) If that is successful you are done. If it is not, then:

4) Download the SBL Bootloader from the Download Repository. Flash it as PDA in ODIN, without ticking Re-Partitioning. (Please observe normal bootloader flashing caution.)

5) Flash the Kernel, as in step 1.

6) Flash the full stock Gingerbread distribution, as in step 2.

The I777 SBL is the very first item in the Download Repository.

I would first suspect a problem with the connection. As I wrote previously:

Try different cables. Try different USB port on the computer. If you can get access to a different computer, try flashing from that. That will be a good start to troubleshooting this issue.
