Default [Q] Help Bricked I9505

I think I've bricked my I9505. I accidentally wiped phone without putting new ROM on SD card. Now I can only go to TWRP or download mode. Also my SD Card isn't showing up on my computer, is there anything i can do?

I tried that and now after restarting my phone i cant get into TWRP. when i try get into recovery it says "firmware upgrade encountered an issue please select recovery mode in kies".
The only thing i can do is get in download mode, but my computer wont recognize the phone.

tried a different usb port and my computer recognised it, however i could only add TWRP with odin i couldn't flash the stock rom, it says failed. It also fails when i try to flash in TWRP itself.

Its very strange that you can goto recovery or download mode but phone not complete flash....good news is you have not completey bricked your phone phone cause you can still flash and enter recovery try lastest firmware na5 is leaked but newest. ...or try custom rom...philz recovery may work....also what rom are you trying to flash

Also a screen capture of odin when you get error as well wil help...

I was trying to install Galaxy S4 stock rom, i'd been using Jamal's 4.3 Google Edition rom. I tried flashing the 4.3 rom again and that was succesful and it seems to be working..
