Yep, if you took the 4.3 OTA it is impossible right now to downgrade to any version.

Yes, you stuck with 4.3 for now. We do have something called safestrap to work around 4.3 bootloader locked, but I'm not recommend to nooby cause it's not yet stable.

I need help too.
Just like OP I didn't know that 4.3's bootloader was not un-lockable yet.
Here's how I bricked my phone and what I've tried so far.

ROM: 4.3 Verizon (Stock)
Rooted with SafeRoot
CWM Recovery was installed.
I used EZ Unlock and it reported Success to unlocking the bootloader.

To fix it I've tried this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2581166
I don't have a class 10 card yet to try.

Does anyone have any ideas on this? Is there no built in way to recover it without a hardware JTAG?
I'm trying to figure out if I can fix this with software without going to my carrier or sending it to someone for $100+.

That's the only method to use. Or jtag service. You should be able to get it working with the posted method of you're diligent enough.

Diligent enough? So have you had to recreate the SD card multiple times to get it to work?
Luckily my last phone the LG Thrill 4G was able to use a piece of software to unbrick it. Even when the phone
was only showing up as an OMAP device similar to how this is showing up as HSUSB

The link I posted earlier worked. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2581166
