Thumbs down [Q] Need help. Can't get phone to boot.

Hey all, I've been in the android game for a long time now, so I'm not new to any of this, but this s3 here has me totally stumped.

It is my cousins (telus i747m), and we had it stock rooted 4.1.1 until yesterday.

I updated it to 4.3 with kies, and then he opted for a custom rom. So I flashed TWRP in Odin, and tried to flash gummy 4.4.2

It failed with a assert fail as well as a status 7. I tried old TWRP, New TWRP, Old CWM, New CWM, many different roms ranging from 4.3 and upwards. Still failing with the stupid status 7.

Kies no longer connects to the phone, so I can't restore through there. I will have to install through Odin and the download is horribly and painfully slow.

So is there any way to get a custom rom flashed? I have searched and no one seems to have an answer. Any help appreciated.
Phone Specs:
Phone: HTC One
ROM: Paranoid Android

Galaxy Gio, Galaxy S > Nexus 4 > HTC One

I'd start back from scratch so go back to stock, then root and flash latest version of TWRP or CWM. Make sure when you flash a Rom it's for that specific device for example if its for the AT&T it's for the AT&T. Also make sure to do a factory wipe before installing any me roms
