You can download a fresh stock image from sammobile.com or the same source you used earlier OR a rooted version courtesy of XDA Developer Mr. Robinson via the following link ... http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23269279319199494
Once you have this, save the zip file to an external SD card. Flash custom recovery to your phone. You mentioned you had philz-touch? Or you could flash TWRP or CWM via Odin. Place the SD card in your phone. Boot into recovery mode and flash from the card. Wait for firmware installation to be complete. Clear your cache/dalvik and reboot to system. Hope this works.

- Tried my stuck image : stuck on Initialzation again
- Tried root66 with Heimdall : can't establish connection (might be me that did something wrong with zadig)
- Found a PIT file for the SGH-i747M 16GB and tried both with Re-partition enabled : stuck on Initialzation again
- Found a post on another forum about a dude that got the same problem as me and got the answer that the internal SD is dead......Damned...
Am I still crazy or this phone wants me dead?
