Unhappy [Q] S4 GPE Not Charging - Definitely a Software Issue

I have an S4 GPE and had a rooted 4.4.2 I9505GUEUCML4 with no issues. In order to flash the 4.4.3 update, I installed TWRP 2.6.0.0 (big mistake - since it saw an empty file system and that's where the problem started) and then replaced it with philz touch 6.15.6 and flashed the zip file. Everything worked fine, but the battery stopped charging. In connecting charger to phone (I tried 3 different chargers with 3 different batteries) lightening bolt appears, LED flashed red - but no charge happens. I tried:

- Multiple clean wipes/fact. resets with a full firmware odin flash, followed by a factory reset (actually tried flashing a couple of variants)
- Went to the lab and had the phone usb checked - no issue
- charged batteries in external chargers - all charged without an issue

The phone is still not charging.

I'd appreciate any and all suggestions.

Thanks!

Did you used any OTG devices ? Sometimes they may affect battery charge.
Devices : SM-N9005 Omega 21 Ultimate Kernel

FOR SAMSUNG : MODEMS - BOOTLOADERS - KERNELS - ODIN - FONTS : JUST CLICK THE BUTTON

HTC One M8 S-OFF - ARHD 11.1 - ElementalX Kernel
SM-G900F XtreStoLite - KT Kernel
