Default [Q] help needed with bricked GN2

I've been struggling with this for 2 days and it seems it's not going anywhere. Please help.
Here's what happened.

I was using 4.2 Jelly Beans ROM and wanted to try 4.4.2 based new roms.
I backed up with Titanium, updated TWRP to with Flashify, wiped cash+data+dalvik and flashed Slimkat 4.4.2.
It seemed like it's working well until I found out that it won't recognize my 32GB SD card.

I decided to flash another rom, to 4.3 Alliance rom.
So I started flashing MJ9 firmware via Odin, but it got stuck on the screen on the attached pic.

It did not make any progress for more than 1 hr, so I disconnected phone from PC and tried to boot up.
It's stuck on the screen on the attached pic.

Please help me out..

I'm not sure if you've fixed your phone yet, but it sounds like you might just want to restore it to stock 4.1.2, then root it again with Casual. Once there, you'll have a clean slate to work with.

Droidstyle's guide should help you restore your phone.... you can find it at this link:

Follow his steps in section 1b to restore to stock. If you restore back to the "Official VRAMC3.4.1.2 5/5/13" build.... you should be able to reroot/unlock your bootloader with Casual again afterwards.

If Droidstyle's guide helps you, please make sure to hit the thanks button for him. He spent a lot of time putting the guide together for us.

Good luck.
