Default [Q] Bricked, ODIN won't flash anything.

Im stuck, i've been stuck for 8 hours. Searched and searched and searched no luck. I Tried to root my dads SGS3, successfully installed TWRP, backed up rom but KNOX kept crashing SuperSU. Tried to flash CM10.2, wouldn't flash so when i was restoring the nan-droid, restored fine but stuck on 'samsung' with led flashing. I can get in Recovery and Download mode but still can't get into android. Ive tried flashing 4.1.2 & 4.3 from sam-mobile still no luck. Am i doomed?
-Had all drivers installed before hand so i don't think its a driver issue.
-Can't boot into android at all
-Have no OS installed now since somehow my sd card is wiped now.
-All i have is a connection to ODIN which refuses to flash

If you have an i9300 then you are trying to flash the wrong firmware. If you actually have a T999 then you are posting in the wrong forum.

Suggest you read and understand the basics before you do anything else.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.
