Default Phone "works" but need help to re-stock it.

So my phone technically works but everything force closes the second I get into the OS so its basically inoperable.
I know exactly what caused the issue, I was rooted and I saw a service that an app called myscript had installed, even after I had un-installed the app itself. I figured I'd kill it, and it caused my phone to have pen input seizures every three seconds. Reinstalling the app, and factory resetting did not help. I have tried to recover the phone but all my efforts have failed thus far (including kies 3 emergency firmware recovery).
Reference for my original problem:

So I need to get back to stock by following this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2559715
but I can't get past the "detect phone" step. Heimdall keeps crashing despite having correctly installed the drivers. I made a post in that thread but I doubt that will garner any help at all, so I figured I'd make a thread begging for help. I've had this phone a scant few days! Please help!
Any other known method of getting back to stock would be acceptable as well.

I read about another guy who just did the same thing, but all is not lost.
He sold his N3 on the interweb for "parts" last Monday and got $110 and his deductible was $200 so it only cost him $90 to get a new one, so don't fret.

Eh I'd rather just get my "like new" replacement for free. Everything is still official and knox is 0x0. Still I'd prefer to fix this is anyone knows how.
