Default [Q] Soft BRICKED please help

I was on MK2 rooted, wanting to upgrade to NC1 via Safestrap method. Something went wrong after I wiped everything except EXSD in Safestrap recovery. The SGS4 rebooted and is now stuck in a softbrick. I can get into download mode and stock recovery, however, I cannot bring my phone back to life. I've tried flashing stock firmware with ODIN, sammobile only has MDL and MDB -- neither of these work for me. I have spent the past few hours reading posts and have not found a solution.

any help is greatly appreciated!

Since you're on a newer version you aren't able to downgrade it to MDL or MDB, if you download the MK2 tar file from here you may be able to get it back.
