I'll try and give as much info as possible so that hopefully this is easy to figure out.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy s3 sch-r530u the US Cellular version. I didn't see a US Cellular forum and read someplace that it's the same as the at&t one so that's why I'm posting in here.

About a month or so ago I rooted and installed cyanogenmod with the installer and it installed I believe 11.1 maybe 11.2. The Android version my phone said it was I'm pretty sure was 4.4.2. Today in about phone in the settings I got a new version available message so I tried to do an update, which I was understanding that it was a cyanogenmod update and not a stock update but maybe I was wrong.

Right after the update my phone would boot to the boot screen with the blue robot guy on it and freeze basically. I was able to get into CWM and also into download mode. I did a little looking around and went into CWM and did the factory reset/wipe and cleared the cache and dalvik and that changed nothing.

Then I tried to flash the cyanogenmod 10.2 from inside CWM because I read someplace that it fixed the problem for someone else and it just failed when I tried. I also tried to fix via Kies and it isn't accepting my serial number for some reason. Then I found the teamuscellular website and grabbed both roms that say are stock roms and tried to flash both of those (not at the same time) via Odin and when I did the first one I got the something happened during firmware upgrade error.

I eventually fixed that by flashing the pit file with Odin and now I'm back to being stuck on the blue robot boot screen. When I try to flash either stock rom from teamuscellular in Odin they fail at some point and then I have to reflash the pit file again.

Somewhere along the line I couldn't get into CWM anymore and had to reflash that and I now have the philz touch 6.09.2 version of that.

I currently can get into both CWM and Download mode but for the life of me nothing I try works. When I go into Download mode what reads in the top left corner is this

odin mode, in red letters
Product name: SCH-R530U, in white letters
Custom binary download: Yes (4 counts), in white letters
Current Binary: Custom, in white letters
System Status: Custom, in white letters
Qualcomm Secureboot: Enable, in grey letters
Waranty bit: 1, in red letters
Bootloader Ap Swrev: 1, in grey letters

When I try and flash a rom and it fails I get some other line of text in red but I forget what it says

Any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

EDIT - Also a number of places directed me to samsungs updates websites to get the stock mod for my phone but there isn't one there for the SCH-R530U.

Also I'm looking at the how to guide for unbricking and I see something there about the status 7 error, which I do believe I got when I tried to flash the 2 teamuscellular stock mods but I don't remember for certain. I know one thing I didn't try was updating my bootloader.

I've also tried fixing with the simple upgrade tool and it fails also.
