Default [Q] Firmware upgrade encountered an issue?

I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy s3 (Pebble Blue).

I downloaded Odin and tried to root it to CF-Root-SGS3, but using this tutorial video: youtube com watch?v=mndQZqom3Ac

Yes, I am a complete noob, therefore it failed. When I tried to turn it back on, it showed me this:

Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

I did perform a full back up of my phone on Kies before starting, thankfully, but when I tried performing the emergency firmware recovery, it won't show my device in the list of devices requiring emergency recovery. I also don't know what the recovery code would be.

I also tried performing the firmware upgrade and initialization process, but it required my IMEI number, and I don't know how to find that without my phone working properly.

This is the other info my phone is showing:

ODIN MODE
PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (4 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 0
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 1

Please help. Thank you so much in advance!

Did you get this taken care of? Hopefully you havent been phoneless for the past few days. Can you still boot into download mode? if you can you should try to Odin the stock tar file for the latest firmware/system update (ND8). It's in a thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2738533 You should be able try rooting again after this gets your phone up and running again. The only thing to worry about is that YOU CAN NOT DOWNGRADE FIRMWARE after MK3 or ND8 without bricking your phone.
