Being able to boot into recovery, at least, is a good start. Can you get into download mode, and, if so, have you used Odin to flash stock firmware, rather than using CWM or whatever recovery you're using? Can you use adb while the device is booting?

Seems like a brick to me... need to use a jig, or just send back to samsung and say that your phone is not starting up. Happened for my galaxy ace last time. Send to samsung and they replaced my motherboard

Not a brick! Just put it in download mode and flash stock rom via Odin and then go into stock recovery and factory reset!

This should do it.

+1 this.

Same thing happened to me and flashing from ODIN worked. Although I never recovered my serial number; it became all zeros. Thankfully my IMEI is okay so I'll live. And if you need stock firmware hit up samsung-updates.com.
