soft bricked ATT SIII??? was using CM 10.
I had was running CyanogenMod 10 or 11 on my unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III - I747. I think before CyanogenMod, I had Android 4.3 OTA. I wanted to go back to stock At &T and downloaded original firmware from sammobile. tried to use different versions of Odin but no success. Everytime I used to get this kind of error.

and KIES was of no use as it did not recognize my I747 on cyanogenMod. Today someone told me that I could get it restored on KIES from tools menu.
-Turned phone off, pulled battery out.
-On Kies, tools> Restore and initialization (?) then input model and serial no. Gave me firmware....... proceeded. After sometime booted phone on download mode but kies failed and gave me message saying emergency recovery code but there was no code. Code space was blank. Now my phone screen show
"Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again,"
every time I press power button it goes to same screen. I can get to download mode but can do nothing as ODIN is not working or giving me same error. Booting onto recovery mode gives me same "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue" error.
What can I do to get my phone back on working condition. Stupid me, I am expecting to get some job interview calls tomorrow
and do not have extra phone o put sim on.
Please help me, My external SD card on phone has recovery image (?) of CyanogenMod if I can get to custom recovery but can not. I would take it in Cyanogenmod if not to stock as long as it gets on working condition.
