Let me reiterate, read EVERYTHING you must follow this 100% exact for this to work.
What happens when you flash an international zip is you format the bootloader. I think Samsung did this to confuse people on purpose because between u.s. and international the partitions for bootloader and kernel are swapped. So an inter. Zip wipes our Bootloader partition and tried to put your kernel there. The debrick image simply allows you to boot your download mode from your SD card instead of from the phone. From there you can return stock and restore the proper partitions.
