For anyone that this happens to and I know there are others, the fix is really easy.
Just grab a copy of a completely stock 4.3 RUU from tmobile and then just use that above thread to restore it back to 4.3. It's really really easy.
In a nutshell you will just make sure to have adb and fastboot and you will be able to communicate with your phone even without having USB DEBUGGING on. The RUU will do everything by itself. The thing is that when you start that program it will spend a few minutes opening up. You will think it's not doing anything but just wait or even open up task manager and you will see the file working. Slowly it will get bigger and bigger until it finally starts up as it unlocks the files needed.
I didn't even need to go buy USB OTG to use a mouse to help turn on USB DEBUGGING.
The really strange thing is that somehow my old homescreen pic stayed throughout this whole ordeal. lol
thanks again to blackangst for helping
