Good afternoon, and thank you for taking your time to read my thread.
I recently attempted to root my phone, and having little to no issue rooting many other devices (including my previous phone, a Galaxy Prevail) I decided I was fed up with the bloatware.

I began the process, but encountered an issue where ODIN failed while attempting to root the device.
I am not 100% sure, but I know this information may very well help me to a solution: I don't think I enabled debug mode in settings.

When attempting to use KIES to restore firmware, I get a "this device is not recognized" error, and even when trying to manually enter S/N and device info, it will not let me use any part of KIES to restore it.

So I then tried to use ODIN to flash stock firmware...

First error I receive is almost immediate:

<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I747UCDLK3_I747ATTDLK3_I747UCDLK3_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> aboot.mbn
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> FAIL! (Auth)


Occasionally, and after about 3 minutes this appears. (and it seems only when attempting to use ODIN on the device multiple times before reboot)

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I747UCDLK3_I747ATTDLK3_I747UCDLK3_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)


Please, if you have any advice for me I am begging.. I only was able to upgrade to this device because of a promotion AT&T had to get it for $5 dollars.. I am very income restricted so buying a new device is a crippling idea. If you do by chance suggest I download a new version of ODIN ( I am using 3.07, I find it most stable) or a new stock firmware etc, please provide links as I have attempted many different mirrors (with horrendous download speeds) for different stock recovery firmware.
THANK YOU!!!

So, what's the state of the phone now and what happens when you try to power on? Is it now booting normally to system?
