Ok I took a picture of it based off the site you shared and I do not see the model number they spoke of.. Weird right?? Or am I overlooking it?

Great eye! If you look you can see that the sd reader says I9505 and it says M919 on the bottom left corner but the actual motherboard to the right says I337 M919 CANA which means it could also be a Canadian at&t variant. When you had it up and running do you remember exactly what baseband you had? If it was MDL it could be T-Mobile or at&t. They both had MDL and Mk2 but at&t had nb1 instead of nb4. We have to be really careful on our next step. We could either make it or break it. Take your time looking all over it and we will find a solution.

Unfortunately I don't have a clue what baseband it was on before the crash. So what do you recommend I do next?

I have a feeling its the att variant. Your phone is already bricked so if this boots then Its your lucky day! I'm running out of ideas.

Let's hope this is right! I'm going by the motherboard. Since none of the M919 packages work on your phone this is the next best thing. I wish the sticker was still on the phone. It may not be there for a reason. It may not be a Samsung product. Good luck! Get back with me right away. You can just email me so I know right away when you have finished. I'll pm you my address.
