Unhappy Stuck at Samsung Logo! bricked! help!

Well, I just got the phone and went on to root and I did with the new method for MF3. then, installed safestrap recovery. finally, i messed up and installed an aosp rom, Gummy KitKat 4.4 and now stuck when booting phone. I cannot get into recovery, I cannot install MDB or MDL through odin, and I cant use Kies to restore since I dont have my sticker behind the phone and dont have my serial number. So, what can I do to restore the phone?? Please help. Thank you.

Check out this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2504311

as you found out you can only flash 4.2 based Roms with safestrap.

With the link I gave you can get the Odin files for MF3 and use Odin to reflash MF3. AS LONG AS YOUR STILL ON MF3. IF YOU UPDATED TO 4.3 THEN DO NOT FLASH IT AS IT WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE.

If I helped just hit the THANKS button

Yes. Basically as long as you haven't flashed the 4.3 bootloaders you should be okay with flashing the MF3 Odin files.
