i had a coworker try to install and flash a rom for me through mobile odin.. and idk what happened but he said its bricked on the download screen.
he told me to go home and download odin, and the stock rom and flash it, which im trying to do but it keeps failing.

Default Try this:

BEWARE, THIS WILL SET YOUR PHONE BACK TO STOCK YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF YOUR DATA

So, I was in pretty much the same situation as you are in. Here's what I did


First, Download, and install Odin 1.85 (here's a direct Download Link):

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...p1ISlP2fzGKhtw

Extract it to a good location. Your Desktop will work

Next, Download the ORIGINAL Jellybean Stock Files from this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2504311
(here's a direct link: https://mega.co.nz/#!WEEzSA7Z!aB4673...FBcQAZjc1X7wAE )

Then, extract the files that is within the MF3 Tars file into their own seperate file.

Open up Odin 1.85

Make sure that your Phone is connected (It will be under the ID:COM, section).

Click Bootloader, and browse to the file location in which you saved the MF3 Tar Files.

Select the file named: BOOTLOADER_I337UCUAMF3_812098_REV06_user_low_ship_ MULTI_CERT.tar.md5

For PDA, use: PLATFORM_I337UCUAMF3_812098_REV06_user_low_ship_MU LTI_CERT.tar.md5
*NOTE: IT MAY FREEZE UP A LITTLE BIT. BE PATIENT!!!!

For Phone, use: MODEM_I337UCUAMF3_812098_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI _CERT.tar.md5

For CSC, use: CSC_ATT_I337ATTAMF3_812098_REV06_user_low_ship_MUL TI_CERT.tar.md5


Then Click Start, and Hope/Pray.

Good Luck

Had root and uninstalled it. Used the link and flashed through Odin and I'm perfectly stock again!! I can get OTA updates.
