I tried updating from 4.2.1 to 4.3 manually because no matter how many times I tried to update from the phone it wouldn't install all the way. I used ODIN to manually update it to the newest firmware. I'm starting to think it was just a root to a 4.3 custom rom. It stopped randomly and that's when I got the error message. I have tried turning it off and on multiple times and also with removing the battery.
I'm not sure if my phone is bricked or soft-bricked.
Any information is helpful. I hope there is a way to get back to stock
