Hey guys this is my first post here and I am in need of some help. I have rooted several phones in the past with no trouble before my galaxy s4. I was trying to downgrade my s4 so I could root but managed to soft brick my phone in the process. Trying to turn on my phone I encounter and error saying "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". I have tried various methods I have found on the forums. Trying to recover firmware in Kies I get an error saying "Firmware Update encountered an unexpected error". Whenever I try to flash anything in odin I get an error.

I don't really know what else I can try. My goal is to try to get back to stock.
