You need to flash that through odin, attach a stock tar as well and hit repartition and you should be good.
If it doesn't work - then you might need to send it in for repairs - it's repairable, but it'll definitely be voided warranty, and you might find it cheaper to go towards repair shops, as all they need to do is JTAG the software back on. Best of luck!
