Question [Q] Stuck on Samsung Splash screen after 4.4 OTA update

I just update my wifes s3 via OTA today and it restarted and booted back up to the Samsung screen and will not go any further. Here are some things that I have tried. Flashing custom recovery and fixing permissions, wiping cache, davlik, and factory reset several times. Flashed stock recovery and flashed 4.4 update from recovery. It still will not budge. Anyone ever experience anything like this or know of any solutions? I'm guessing I'll have to try odin but don't know which to flash without bricking.

This is what you want.

You already tried everything I would have before trying Odin. Be warned, Odining the stock tar will wipe everything from the internal storage, but you don't really have a choice.
