Default [Q] Bricked Phone via Bootloader Downgrade

Hi,


I bricked my phone by accidentally downgrading my boot-loader. I was running Quantum Rom which had previously required me to upgrade my bootloader. Since I was encountering some issues with the rom, I decided I wanted to flash back to stock. Foolishly, I used Odin to flash stock firmware which involved a bootloader downgrade as well. This resulted in a bricked phone . I can still boot into download mode but I am unsure on how to unbrick the phone since Odin doesn't work. Any ideas?


Thanks!
