Default [Q] Bricked Going from 4.3 to stock

I was on PA 3.99 4.3.1 , and trying to go to stock Jellybean by flashing a zip in Clockwork mod recovery. It resulted in a bricked device that hangs up on the boot animation, but i can still access download mode.

From download mode i tried flashing another stock image through odin, but got an error and the flash failed.

I would really like to recover photos from this phone. What can i do to get it into booting condition to do so?

Its a bell version if it makes any different.

Also, is there a way to unbrick WITHOUT having to use a 16gb microSD card, because i dont have one available.

Your phone isn't bricked of it can get into download mode.

I suggest installing a custom recovery such as Philz Touch and them a custom ROM to at least get the phone to boot.

There is no stock ROM that can be flashed in cwm. You can install a stock ROM using Odin but that will wipe all user data.

The flash in Odin may have failed if you were trying to downgrade the bootloader.
