Phone [Q] Help with 4.4.2 hardbrick

Hi, help me out if I made a mistake here. I've searched up and down and haven't found what I'm looking for. I have a SPH-L710 that I received with Android v4.4.2

I installed Clockwork Recovery v6.0.4.5 via Oden. From there I installed SlimKat ( and slimGAPPS

It never booted, only stayed on the Slimkat screen for over 10 minutes. I sideloaded Android 4.3.2 and installed from zip. Clockwork noted that I didn't have ROOT and I said yes to that prompt, and restarted the device. It has been hard bricked since, no screen, no noise, no vibration, no light. I have tried 4.3 unbrick image and 4.4 unbrick image (osx sudo dd...) to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions for me? Is this where I should look for a JIG or am I still using the wrong unbrick images?

You can't revert to the MK3 bootloader at all from my understanding, or you result in hard brick
