Unhappy [Q] Unbrick hard-bricked SPH-L710

Hello all!

Well, looks like I hard-bricked my phone. It will not boot into download or recovery mode. What do I do?
I tried using quite a couple sd-card guide, but no avil.
I tried http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2345860 and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2369125

Also, if it will help, I got a full backup of boot, cache, data, recovery, and system in ".win" files. I cannot load it the "simple" way (through TWRP) since I cannot even get into recovery.

Please help me fix this without using a JTAG service, because there is always the question of wheater I will get my phone back once it is fixed.

Maxwell D.

YAHOO!! I got this problem solved with the help of zachf714, invisiblek and a special thanks to xstefen for providing a working debrick image. Here is the link to the working debrick image that xstefen provided: http://download.xstefen.net/getdownl...backup.bin.zip. all you need to do, is write this image to a micro SD card using linux's
Code:
dd
command or Win32 Disk Imager. Then put the sd card in your phone, boot into download mode and flash a stock ROM using Odin.

Wish anyone else who have this problem luck.

P.S. I am not responsible if anything happens to your phone because of this.

Yes, it was using stock OS version 4.3. Now I already installed a custom OS based on 4.4 Kitkat.

Default WHY?!

Why am I always so close to a solution on these forums, and then discover the links are dead?!

I am suffering from the 4.3 problem. Can someone please post a working link? I know I'm relying on your good graces, but some of these hosts are rubbish.

Here is a currently working link. My phone is still dead, but maybe it will be useful to someone else.
