Default [Q] So i believe my phone might be soft bricked

My S4 is currently running MF3, i rooted while in MF3 so it was that soft root stuff without the bootloader. i figured it was time for an update to 4.3 so when i went to Unroot the phone it literally just sat at the Samsung Custom Screen. I tried to access the TWRP and restore that way, Nothing happend, i took it to best buy and tried to reflash it that way, their computer couldn't see my phone.

So my last option would be to connect it into Odin correct? Would this work or am i wasting my time?

Try Odin. There is a thread with the correct files.

Also, please do not talk about smashing or purposely damaging your phone for warranty. That is warranty fraud and is not allowed on XDA.

It should work. Make sure you have your drivers and your device in DL mode when you connect it to your PC. Also use a back USB port.
