Greetings all

I recently tried the root process that was developed by geohot (http://towelroot.com/) on my s4. It worked to get root and unlock the bootloader (I thought). When i tried to flash a custom recovery to it, it failed and now the phone won't even boot normally at all. Can still get to Odin but can't get to Recovery. When I tried to Odin the stock ROM to it, it fails immediately.

Got any ideas on things that I can try to do to fix it, or you think that it's hardbricked now?

Also, towelroot only roots. There still is no custom recovery, the bootloader is still locked
