Default Help!!! ODIN/Kies Failed Update, Wont Update at all (solved)

i have a sgh-i337 that i was going to downgrade and root via the saferoot method on here. i first downgraded the modem so i would have access to the hidden menu for unlocking purpose, after that the phone wouldnt accept any other flashing. i tried the PIT, stock firmware, stock rom all of these will fail in odin. i have tried to do a emergency firmware restore in kies which also fails.
please tell me theres some option im missing somewhere

You can't down grade firmware on the i337. Try flashing the same firmware version as you had before attempting to down grade in Odin

Since we don't know what firmware you are on we really can't help too much... thus said, have a look over at these links, and follow their directions to a T

i was on NB1, sorry about the lack of info there.
i finally got it sorted out... well almost.
it turns out that flashing the modem again allowed me to get the phone back into working condition, after which i was able to downgrade to MK2
this worked fine and dandy with one issue remaining, i have no sound what so ever. no notification, music, video, nothing. wont even play music for that matter, says it cant open this type of file "mp3" even pandora wont play.

thanks for the replies.

flashing a stock NB1 fixed the sound issue, guess i will have to wait for someone to root till i mess with it again.
and for anyone interested the unlock method via hidden menu worked for me doing that downgrade/upgrade. im on tmobile

You can't use the ODIN modem files. You can get root on NB1. Follow the guide specifically, then flash the modems from RockRatt's thread through Safestrap.
