More information is needed for people to help you.. What did you do exactly (how you tried to install etc) and what are the symptoms.

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289

I tried flashing a kernel through CWM running on JB 4.3 stocked rooted, just got the phone a week ago. Nothing will work, no recovery, no download, I tried using Win32 disk img flasher, didn't work.

Without download mode you will need a usb jig or jtag. Sounds like you probably flashed the wrong file to get that effect, in which case you do have a hard brick.

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