did you do the repartition check thing?

No, the only thing I checked was "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time". Should I do it one more time or should I find a way to flash cyanogenmod again?

Yeah, it still won't let me boot. Is there a way I can flash a rom or put in a different recovery mode from here?

It's not uncommon to need to reboot to recovery to factory reset after flashing the firmware through Odin or Heimdall as many of the packages do not wipe data as they are meant to be update versions.
