Exclamation Soft Bricked my AT&T GS5 after I tried to install first ROM

I recently rooted my GS5 with Towel Root and installed SafeStrap Recovery... I made a Nandroid recovery. Then I wiped cache/dalvik and system then installed a Rom and when it booted the screen was plain black.

Now when i power on my device all I see is Samsung boot screen with the Custom Unlock.

I can't get into the Recovery any longer and I've downloaded the Stock firmware and have tried flashing through Odin 1.85, 3.07 and 3.09

PLEASE ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

Odin recognizes the phone? Have you looked at the steps in this thread?

Yes Odin does recognize device. And I have tried that link.. it has all 4 parts that odin flashes, but it always fails. Tried different ports, 2 different usb 2.0 micro usb cords and even the samsung gs5 cord. I also tried a stock firmware I got from http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/

You did not try to flash all 4 files did you, because the BL file will always fail? You only flash 3, the AP, CP, and CSC files.

Remember, root is not responsible for what happens with your phone, You are.

Yeah, leave out the BL and everything else will flash fine.

You guys are awesome! I've tried flashing individual things at once, AP over and over again with different mixes but didn't know about BL part always failing. It currently seems like its doing a full flash so im sure it will work!

Thanks again guys greatly appreciated.
