I have a sgh-i337, I tried to format my rom and threw everything at it but the kitchen sink but could not get it cleared. Then I looked around and found out about the write protect issue on the bootloader from at&t and verizon. (chattr +i /boot/system.tar.md5) It's not difficult to figure out what they did.
Needless to say I am softbricked right now with all the user data deleted. I did back up in kies but it is asking me for a number I never saw.

Is there a patch for fixing the at&t immutable bit on the bootloader?
Is there a download that will help me launch my phonetop?
We know the bootloader and system files are just fine...

The boot loader is still locked. The stock kernel and recovery cannot be replaced.

The link to stock firmware is available in

You can use Odin to flash the stock firmware. You can flash the same or newer version only.
