I can get into download mode as well as recovery mode. When I try to boot regularly my s3 freezes at the Samsung Galaxy SIII splash screen and I have to do a battery pull.

Everytime I try to flash back to stock or follow any of the instructions out there to fix my softboot, it fails.

Loading up an .md5 or similar in Odin freezes the computer regardless of which one I use, I've tried it on my Windows 8 tablet, Windows 7 desktop, and Windows 7 laptop.

Can anyone help me?

Did you try a factory reset?

The only other options I can think of would be the Verizon upgrade utility or kies. Both will give you the permanently locked 4.3 bootloader. If you don't care you should try the verizon utility because kies is a horrible application and should be avoided at all costs. I think itunes for windows is a better application than kies and that's saying a lot.
