Soft bricked my phone because my boot loader was locked. I got it to where it says i need to update the firmware in kies. How do I fix this?

I tried to flash the a stock rom via odin but it kept saying it fails...

Flash a factory stock ROM image. You will need to know what build you're on to know what factory image to flash.

Well, that's interesting.

Consider telling us what build you started with, what ROM you were trying to flash, and what the failure was. There's way too many things you could have done wrong for anyone to guess what failed.
