Pull the battery for 10 sec and put it back. Then press and hold power+volumedown inorder to reach download mode. Then flash the stock rom again via odin.

Provide all info before asking help multiple times on the same problem.

Which model exactly ? I9500 or I9505 ?
Which type of brick ? stuck in bootloop or what ?
Can you enter the download mode ?
Before flash random firmware have you try using Kies and the Emergency Firmware Recovery ?
