Hello there people. I'd not new to this website.... I've just been a ghost that was finally forced to register for this site.

I have a

Tmobile Galaxy S3 (SGH T-999)

Now, I rooted my phone with CWM a while back.
So then after a couple of days, I decided that I wanted a Custom Rom. Turns out that it wasn't compatible for my phone.
So I got put in a bootloop.

I was able to Access Recovery and Download mode.
I factory reset my phone from there, formatted dalvik, all of that.
I downloaded a stock bootloader and stock Rom from here for my phone
I tried to use odin to flash the stock bootloader onto my phone. From what i can remember i saw, boot.img, Compete(Write) operation failed.
Now when i booted my phone all i see is
it just...... Activates

Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies and try again.
Therefore i cannot access recovery mode anymore but i can still access Download Mode. I cannot see it boot at all.

Some Info while in download mode:

Product Name: SGH-T999
Custom Binary Download: Yes(1Count)
Current Binary:Samsung Official
System Status:Custom
Qualcom Secureboot:Enable
Warranty Bit:0
Bootloader Ap swaev:1

Here's how it looks when i try to flash stock rom or virtually anything onto my phone.

<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
I've given up on trying to do this myself and I now have to suck up my pride and ask for help.
Is there still hope, or do i have a $500 Paper Weight? Please Help.
