Default [Q] Softbrick, SM-9005, N9005VJUEND1 from Chile

I've softbricked my phone just following this guide over here: http://nasirtech.blogspot.com/2014/0...42-kitkat.html

After following that, just after trying to root the phone bricked and would restart anymore. So far i have followed different guides like:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2627291
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2628435&page=8

But it seems to happen the same thing over and over. The flash just fails every time even if i flash only the pit, only the AP and so on. I've used odin 3.06 and 3.07 and the stock firmware that used to come with the phone (N9005VJUEND1), the phone is unlocked and is the one that has written 4G at the back.

The info behind the battery is:
Model: SM-N9005
FCC ID: A3LSMN9005
SSN: -N9005GSMH

And says that is made in korea. Also is a 32GB version.

What is important to mention is that i'm doing all of this in VMWare at a macbook. Don't know if this actually hurts the process but it shouldn't.

Does anybody has been through something similar?, please all help is needed

Or parallels. The problem is the usb drivers in vmware. Parallels works perfectly.

Confirmed,

VMWare have issues with samsung driver, if you have a mac you can flash your international n9005 with parallels. DON'T USE VMWARE.

Ok, flashed successfully, but now the phone has no sound, the camera doesn't works and the dial panel doesn't work either. I'm trying to do a flash and then open it in recovery mode so i can do a full wipe. But even after doing the full wipe doesn't have any sound or camera. Any pointers with this?, i'm flashing it with aN9005VJUEND1_N9005UUBENC1_N9005VJUENC1 from Chile.

any help with this could be amazing. I've installed now CWM 6.0.4.7. With it i've installed bobcat 9.0 and same thing. Only a little faster. But still laggy, no sound, no camera and no dialer. Now i'm installing HAWKISH elite serie version N9005ZHUENE6. I will tell you later how i'm going with it.

---- edit ----

Nope, still the same, no sound. It's kind of desperating to still don't have nothing working. Please give me some pointers. Almost tryed everything.

Finally i delivered it to the samsung service. It seems that i damaged the bootloader for what they are telling me and that's the reason why i had trouble with the keyboard, sound and dial.

So no more playing with the phone for now :P. Or use a windows to make the flashes. Any comments on this?
