Default Help recovering from soft brick?

So I seem to have softbricked my phone after attempting to move from CM11 to a stock samsung rom. I can now only enter download mode and not recovery mode. All attempts to flash a stock rom in Odin end up saying FAIL. A quick google tells me this probalby means I have a NAND rw corruption issue, but a lot of the information seems outdated or files that I would need aren't available


Can anyone help?

Odin failing can be for a number of reasons. The reason I faced for my Odin to fail (used to fail midway and windows used to show device disconnected) was the faulty micro USB port of my S2. Had it replaced and it worked fine.
