OK. If anyone else happens to run across this thread, here are the things I attempted:

cf auto root chainfire - didn't work. It actually seemed like it was trying to copy, but would stop about halfway and never finish.
Tried the following ROM's. None of them would get past the NAND Write Start:
L710VPUCMK3_L710SPRCMK3_L710VPUCMK3_HOME.tar.md5
KIES_HOME_L710VPBMD4_L710SPRBMD4_1130792_REV03_use r_low_ship.tar.md5
L710VPUCMK3_L710SPRCMK3_L710VPUCMK3_HOME.tar.md5
L710VPUCND8_L710SPRCND8_L710VPUCND8_HOME.tar.md5
Tried multiple PC's, cables, ports, you name it.

Currently the phone won't even power on anymore. Not sure if the battery is just dead (tried another old battery, same result) or if the phone is just outright dead.

If this happens to you and you can figure out how to recover, you're a better man than I. Near as I can tell it's pretty much a total loss when this happens.

HTH.
