Default [Q] Need help! Soft bricked GT-I9505 w/ wirte protection enabled

Today I tried to flash the official firmware on my rooted GT-I9505, but it failed along the way and now I'm stuck with the "firmware upgrade encountered an issue" screen. Tried recovering it using Skies but it couldn't connect to my device. Tried flashing it again but it now fails when writing into the device. Then I found out that it's write protected which I believe is the reason why odin could no longer write into it.

Is there still a way to recover my GS4 given its condition? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
