Thumbs down Odin Help please! Bricked GS3 not cooperating.

I have been unsuccessful all morning with getting ODIN to play nice. I've tried resetting it, opening and closing it between flashing, unplugging my phone and replugging etc. The furthest I can get is flashing the VRALEC bootchain with a PASS. The md5 is invalid for VRALF after several reattempts and redownloading it. I tried to bypass VRALF since both VRALEC and VRALF aren't both technically needed, but ODIN failed when trying to flash the vzwroot66 tar file. I am redownloading that as we speak through the torrent file.

I cannot get into recovery. I fear that I may have deleted something important this morning deleting personal files off it to resell on ebay. I did this manually instead of just wiping under CWM for my pictures and stuff. Then I wiped it and was getting ready to install cyanogen for the buyer and now I get stuck at the logo when trying to boot even with recovery. ODIN is my only option and it appears to be failing repeatedly. Any suggestions?

I need to get this thing back up and running or I am going to have to issue a refund to my ebay buyer. Those smarter than I am, PLEASE help me.
