Default [q] samsung galaxy s4 (i337m) rogers root fail! Possible brick!

Shoot guys I'm really sorry for multi posting but so far the answers aren't helping I promise this is my last post of this.

OK first off I going to express my deepest apologies for starting a thread with an issue that has probably been answered 100 times... My problem is that I have tried every possible phrase that I know for search term pertaining to my particular issue and I am still stuck. SO I will be as details as possible and I hope and pray that at LEAST if I get kicked for starting this and the thread being shutdown, that someone will have posted "heres the link numb nuts be more careful next time".

OK so on with my issue. I have a Rogers Samsung Galaxy S4 I337M on 4.3, I tried to use chainfire's latest cf-Autoroot to root my phone and it just failed. Here is the log:

As you can see when odin could not find the PIT I downloaded one and retried.

Anyway now I'm stuck on this:

and the top left may be important so here is the clearest shot of that:

Now I have tried to flash stock firmware that I downloaded from sammobile AND samsung update and no matter how many times I try to flash its the same thing over and over again (log):

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I337MVLUEMK6_I337MOYAEMK6_I337MVLUEMK6_HOME.tar.md 5 is valid.

I then thought about trying Kies. First problem, Emergency firmware did not list my device. Then I tried firmware upgrade and initialize and even though the start button wouldn't show unless I plugged the phone in as download mode, once the firmware was finished downloading and ready to flash it would give me an error saying it couldn't not detect my device.

I am not sure is this is EVERYTHING I could have tried but to MY knowledge it is. Please help

And my deepest gratitude to anyway and all who point me to the right direction. I hope I have been as detailed as I possibly can be.

Default CF-Auto Root

Some basic questions.... can you still get to download mode? Most importantly... did you use the Canadian file for cf auto root found here? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2293800 the I337 is not the same as the Canadian I337M so if you used the wrong file that would cause it to fail... does it boot at all if you try? also did you check the md5 to ensure your download was complete if you did use the right file??
