Calculator [[[help]]] might've bricked my phone

I got clockwork mod 6.0.3.1 installed on a Galaxy S3 but I can't install CM... and I can't boot back onto my original rom. If I restart my phone, it just goes into Clockworkmod, I don't have to hold power + home + up for CWMod... So CWMod is the only thing I can get to, in addition to the download mode (Vol down + power + home).

If I apply Cyanogenmod11.zip through clockwork, it says

(Status 7)

OR

Installation aborted.

No additional information, just "installation aborted". Really sucks....


Now I get status 7 or install aborted depending upon the .zip I use. I've tried nightlys and stables, neither work. ANY HELP APPRECIATED!

I can't reset binary counter because I can't go into my "desktop" so to speak. I only have two access points on the phone, the download mode and ClockworkMod.

2. Flash Stock Recovery
I am stuck at downloading my StockRecovery, because the US Cellular variant is not listed. I have looked and looked and looked everywhere and can't find stockrecovery for US Cell.

Okay, so we can worry about the binary counter later. Whats the model no. of your phone?
Also, why don't you try flash official firmware leaving the recovery as it is.

The fact u say your US variant isn't listed is a bit worrying, you know this is a forum for the international GalaxyS3 and the US versions have there own forum and ROMs?
