Unhappy Trouble un-Bricking my MJ7

I've made some of mistakes and now I need your help determining if I'm screwed or if there's a solution.

1st Mistake: I let my new VZ GS4 update to MJ7.

2nd Mistake: I thought I found a guide to get a rooted MJ7 so I tried using Odin to flash VRUDMI1...which errored.

Well that didn't work. Time to reboot...except now it wont boot. Now it displays:
Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recover mode in Kies & try again.

At least it's suggesting a solution, right? So I download Kies 3. It connects. I follow a guide which tells me how to re-initialize the firmware.
1. I enter the model "SCH-I545"
2. I enter the IMEI
3. The firmware downloads
4. Nothing. It eventually gives an error that it can't connect.

I've tried that on multiple computers with various cables with the same results.

So do I go back to Staples where I got it on Black Friday and tell them that my phone stopped working?

First off youre in wrong forum. Questions go in the questions section. You need to download the stock mj7 image and flash it in odin.

Hit thanks if I helped you out. Doing a little bit of reading goes a long way. Sent via tapatalk.

I did the same thing was up all night finally found out about Kies but it worked for me. Once you update to mj7 you can't go back. my problem with odin was I was trying to go back to me7 so I have mj7 odin image to try if it happens again.

Sorry about posting in the wrong area. I knew better, but was completely exhausted when I made the thread and didn't think about it.

If anyone else makes the same mistake I did, I'm back up and running after downloading SCH-I545_VZW_1_20131023084910_v4vth34m5z_fac.zip and flashing with Odin.
