I have tried 5 different cords, and two different computers on all usb ports. Nothing

You said it'll boot recovery, is it stock or a custom one? Also, are you familiar with ADB?

When you plug it into the computer, is it detected by odin? If so, what does it say in the message box when you try to flash?
Look in device manager too. What does it detect the device as?

I know the jig works because I tested it on my wife sgh-i747m and also on my infuse. Both of which boot into download mode immediately. My concern is there is something wrong with the main board because it really doesn't seem like it was rooted at all.

I am just going to see what I can get for it at this point, I paid 70 so would be looking to get at least 60

Send me a message of you want to sell your s3.
