Default After Upgrade to 4.4.2 attempt, I am stuck in ODIN MODE! Please Help

Hey guys, how is it going?

I have a major problem.

I was attempting to upgrade to 4.4.2 using this guide

I made it to step 6. But ODIN failed and never completed. I couldn't get ODIN to successfully flash. Now as a result, when I turn on the phone it states "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". (installed Kies and cant get the phone to connect to Kies)

I am able to trigger download mode and the phone is recognized by ODIN on my computer. I have tried multiple different methods to recover using various images and all fail during flash using ODIN.

I am not sure where to go from here, any advice or guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Are you sure md5 of odin files are good? Are u using the Verizon USB cable. Have you tried different USB ports? Different computer? Have you tried odin 3.09? 3.07?
