Phone [q] samsung galaxy s3 root accidentyl updated help

I have a rooted android device samsung galaxy s3 and it was running fine and everything till one day it said to install an update. i accepted it and while it was updating all of a sudden it went to that black screen and says, " system software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off you phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help." Then thats where i couldn't do anyting with my phone but go to download/ODIN MODE and rebooting system thing where you can reboot system. IM very new and i don't know much about rooting and the meanings of a lot of words like unlock bootloader. If i go to ODIN MODE it says
ODINE MODE
PRODUCT NAME: SCH-1535
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (1 Counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty bit: 1
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV:1

i think this doesn't look good. WHat should i do to make my phone be working again and not showing that black screen.
I already wiped all data and tried to do that StockROm thing on my computer ODIN and still nothing.
Is my bootloader locked? if so do i need to unlock it to make my phone work again? Thanks so much for your time

Same with mine I think it's called a bricked phone and think there is nothing we can do about it, hopefully someone has a solution

I dunno if this will work for you. But I had the same message and when I booted in Download mode I just hit Cancel then rebooted and it worked?

If you flashed cyanogenmod, that means you're bootloader is unlocked, which is a good thing.

Can you get into CWM or TWRP? I don't have a samsung so i don't know about ODIN (i presume it's like flashtools for Xperia).

For as long as your phone vibrates (or does pretty much anything when you boot it up) your phone is not hardbricked, which is also good .

Try getting into CWM, shut down your phone completely, wait 5 seconds, then do: Volume Down + Home + Power key . This will get you into bootloader state and try reflashing your old backup, a stock rom or cyanogenmod.

First time with these softbricks is always the most fun ^^. Been there done that, i thought i spend 250 euro's on a phone that was broken .

Btw. Always make a backup for these kind of situations.

You took the 4.3 update. You must now Odin to stock 4.3 to unbrick, do not Odin to any other (previous) version. There is a safe root method.
I do not think there is custom recovery and bootloader is now permalocked.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2270191 has a link to the odin file and the root method in post 2 or 3 i believe.

I just recently ODIN flashed the latest 4.3 stock firmware for my TMO GS3 and then attempted to roll back to 4.1.2. It didn't brick my device, but it didn't work either. I would simply fail to install. I was able to reflash, through ODIN, the 4.3 stock firmware (actually used the root66 version). Then I was able to ODIN flash CWM recovery and install Dandroid 5.1, which is also a 4.3 based ROM. All is well now. I guess I simply can't go back to any previous 4.3 ROMs now, and I'm not sure about any AOSP ROMs. I may give a try at some point to see.
