Does it work if I just use the Factory Data Reset? Or would that brick my phone since I'm running a different firmware that's not the factory provided one?
factory reset just wipes /data
no harm in trying.
I think you also need to run triangle away.
have you consulted the support website for your carrier to see if they have an "updater" which will flash to stock?
if so, then wipe /data with factory reset, use the updater without letting your turn phone on after you did the factory reset.(so it doesn't setup /data again and cause conflicts with the new flash)
does kies software work at all?

also, did you wipe your phone completely from recovery before you flashed the zip in the link I provided?
