Default [Q] Is my SCH-i925 permanently bricked?

Here's my situation, I have a VZW Galaxy Note 10.1 that was on MH2 and I tried rooting with the Framaroot method which didn't work. Against my better judgement and the research I did, I tried using the Kingo root method which seemed like it was going to work since I had the Superuser app request root permission (which I granted) just before rebooting. This is where I'm stuck now -- the GNote is stuck in a perpetual loop and all I can manage to get is the "downloading" screen. What I've tried so far to recover it is flashing the stock VZW firmware with every version of Odin I can find and all fail just after it appears to flash the boot image. I tried using Heimdall via a GUI and command line of both a Windows PC and a Mac to flash anything I could get it to take but nothing would stick. I have searched for a .pit file to try and repartition but I don't think I've found any that were actually for the VZW variant of the 10.1. I talked to Samsung support (acted as if I had no ide what happened) and they advised me to take it to a Samsung Experience location in my local Best Buy. I did that and the person there tried using the emergency recovery which also failed. I'm at a loss. Every possible solution I may have found I've tried twice and nothing has yet to get me any progress. Can anyone suggest something that I haven't tried yet?

Have you try Reboot into recovery and Wipe data/cache . Many time doing a data and cache wipe will get me back up .

I can't. The only screen I can mange to boot to is the "Downloading" screen. It can't get any further than that.
