Unhappy How to bring my S4 back to life???

I've searched high and low for a solution and after two nights of no result, maybe the best way to figure this out is to ask here and hopefully someone could help me!

-I was on MK2
-Rooted the phone successfully.
-I tried to install clockworkmod via ROM MANAGER, obviously, this did not work. I can only get into the stock recovery.
-Tried it with ODIN as well, the process kept failing so I gave up.
-I then found SAFESTRAP.
-This recovery works and I managed to backup my system, it is currently on the miniSD.
-Then using safestrap, I tried to flash cyanogen. This was a dumb move.
-My phone stopped working since then.
-It will either stay on the charge icon when plugged in, or stuck at the "custom" splash screen when not plugged in.
-I can no longer get into Safestrap. I was not able to get into the stock recovery either, but it's working now.
-So I can get into download mode, recovery mode, but nothing else.
-I've downloaded all the stock firmwares that I could find, even trying with ODIN but the processed fails every time.
The firmware I found were: I9505XXUFNA5, I337UCUAMDB_I337ATTAMDB_ATT
-I've tried different versions of ODIN and different USB ports and cables and such.
-I've also tried KIES (I was desperate!) and that did not work either because it kept failing and I decide to quit after it gave the same results several times.

I can get into Download mode or Recovery.

Anyone has any bring idea about how to fix this? I figured since the phone still boots into the two modes so it's not completely lost yet! I really appreciate any help!
