Default [Q] uk s3 not booting after latest update

hi,
i have an unrooted uk sgs3 on orange.
last night i found an update come thru on my phone which i delayed until i checked it out & backed up all my stuff including an android note pad (which i keep a few things on for work).
anyway my daughter was playing about with my phone & pressed the update, which in turn just about killed my phone ( all it does now is stays on the samsung screen).
ive tried taking the battery out for ages, fully charging it & going into the v+, home, power screen but nothing seems to work.
is there any way to reload the original firmware without losing all the aps etc.
if so or even if there isn't could anyone help me find how to get it back working.
thanks.

but you can get into recovery to wipe and see if it boots. is flash stock firmware via odin, but erase all

got it back up and running, hopefully not lost many pics (think theyre on my ext sd card).
is it worth trying to install the new 4.3 via odin or would you recomend leaving it at 4.1.2 ????
thanks
