Default Hopefully NOT Bricked but Unsure of What to Do

Ok, I got a new Note II the other day with 4.3 already installed via Kies or OTA. I attempted to push, via ODIN, "CF-Auto-Root-d2tmo-d2tmo-sght999.tar". I REALIZE THIS IS THE ROOT FOR S3; I KNOW I FLASHED THE WRONG FILE. PLEASE DO NOT POST SAYING I FLASHED THE WRONG FILE. I KNOW I SCREWED UP BIG TIME, AND I'M HOPING SOMEONE IS NICE ENOUGH TO TRY AND HELP ME THROUGH THIS. My laptop sat there for the better part of 2 hours acting like ODIN was cranking along but the bar never moved. After 2 hours, I had to pull the cord from the phone (stupid move, I know!), and this is, of course, where the problem began.

Now, I get the coveted "Firmware Upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." screen. The phone will, obviously, go no further than this in booting up. I am able to get to download mode.

I attempted to install JellyBean Release 4.3 (December 2013) from this thread to alleviate the issue. Here's the ODIN result:

<ID:0/004> cache.img
<ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
<ID:0/004> Removed!!

Now, as I sit here and write this, I think installing a stock firmware like this one might not work at all. I need to install a recovery (stock or otherwise) to make this problem disappear. I tried to reinstall the CF-Auto-Root file and got this result:

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-d2tmo-d2tmo-sght999.tar.md5 is valid.

<OSM> Leave CS..

<ID:0/004> Removed!!

Again, it didn't do anything for hours. I pulled the cord again since it didn't look like it was actually writing anything to my phone.

I don't think I can use KIES as a last resort since I never backed up the phone through KIES before. I am out of ideas, and I would really like to get this phone operational again. Also, the serial number has been removed from the device (Igot the phone from Ebay), so I don't think I could use this route either.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Download and flash CF auto-root for sgh-t889(link below)it includes recovery, then perform factory reset by rebooting in to recovery.
