Default i played stupid card and softricked my 4.4.2 s3

i played the stupid card and softbricked my S3. i was in a curious mood and wanted to go back to a fresh 4.3 to get to a fresh 4.4.2. is there anyway for me to unbrick it with or without losing my data (preferrably losing because i want a fresh start). Does anybody know when a tar will be ready or when the file will be available through the Verizon Repair Assistant?

thanks hopefully this works. will try this soon. do i need to have auto reboot checked as well? EDIT: did it with no auto reboot and rebooted it manually and it worked. thanks so much you saved me from waiting for weeks. i will still wait for weeks for an odin file for the full rom and have that downloaded
