Ok- just wanted to check if you've got a custom recovery which will make life little bit easier. Nevermind.
If its help somehow, there are several cases similar the one that you have:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2148249
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2563230

In my opinion, you have 4 different choices:
1- Try to flash SGH-I747 Stock rom with odin form Sammoblie- It supposed to work, but i don't familiar with the outcome in a case where your phone was been unblocked to use in other countries and carriers beside AT&T.
2- Try to install custom recovery following this guide:http://www.teamandroid.com/2012/08/2...sgh-i747-odin/
and then try to install custom rom (considered to be less risky than the first choice, but yet again...)
3- Try to start your phone with safe mode (just pressing vol down button while it starts up), and try to instal CPU-z for android to check your real phone specs.
4- Try to ask the same quastion in above forums, hoping that someone has figured out a way.

Sorry for not being too much of a help at this point

Then it looks like someone as tried to flash a SGH-1747 firmware on your GT-19300 If that has happened it will show SGH-1747 in download mode!

You said
I found out that I need to download this "boot-stock-att-sgh-i747.tar

Therefore its found on I747 forum not I9300 .

This whole thread is ambiguous its I747 firmware but its not i747 .
In which case the phone may well be bricked as per first post .


But you want to download a boot for att sgh .1747 .

Go to a service centre with a JTag machine .
