Exclamation [Q] Stuck in boot loop, won't allow odin flash, and factory data reset does nothing

I have a galaxy s2 sgh-s959g that is stuck in boot loop. I have attempted to flash my factory firmware via odin and when I do odin gives me a green PASS light and my phone says reads it as installed until it goes to reboot then it just goes right back into boot loop. What can I do besides taking a sledge hammer to my phone and then grinding all of the pieces in a blender, drinking them in a toxic milkshake, crapping it out all over the place, and then ghetto stomping the remains into the carpet as I light it on fire? Sorry, if you can't tell I'm livid pissed about this (0 sleep isn't helping). This has happened before, but I was able to fix it last time. And I have already done factory data reset (does absolutely nothing). Your help is sincerely appreciated.

Can you access Download mode?

If you can, restart the procedure.

Yeah, I can get into download and recovery modes fine. But I've tried reflashing the stock firmware on a few times now and Odin gives me the green pass light while my phone reboots into boot loop mode.

DONATE TO ME
Boot into recovery and perform a wipe data/factory reset. May help.
