She was on 4.3 already (must've updated automatically at some point)
What I did was first root it using the 4.3 root method. Then I realized I couldn't flash a kernel without a CWM. So I tried to flash CWM via terminal. When I tried to boot to recovery it was giving me Secure Fail: Kernel, I figured that I did something wrong. I flashed it again using GooManager. Now I pressed reboot recovery and same thing. So I realized I wasn't unlocked yet -oops.
I was going to download ez-unlock then but now, unlike when I flashed TWRP from terminal, I can no longer boot up the phone. Even without holding the vol up+home+power, it always starts to say booting recovery and I end up at the Secure Fail: Kernel screen that says "System software not authorized by VZW blah blah"
So did I brick her phone? And is there a way to fix it? I figured maybe I can odin back to stock or something?
