Ok. Everything seems right to me. It's definitely not you!

What info did you get from the previous owner? When you bought it did they tell you it was bricked and what they did to brick it?

I was told nothing really. They just told me that it boot looped and it was stuck on the "Firmware Upgrade has Encountered an Issue" screen. It was more so a gamble really. The phone looks impeccable so it seems to be rather new. Maybe the owner had flashed it before and tool the OTA, soft-bricking it... I don't know. I just know that its last flash was 4.4 KK because it wouldn't let me downgrade firmware.

I'm not quite sure what else you could look at doing here. You seem to be doing everything right, but not getting the right results.

The following is an option:

Seems to me that the previous owner did something "unofficial" that caused this. If it was something official, it would've easily been accepted as a replacement via warranty situation. But instead, they got rid of it!

Actually, there is one more thing you can try. You should never do this because there is too high a risk of bricking if you do something wrong. But you are already pretty bricked, so what else have you got to lose?

Go check this out, and nand erase all during the odin flash.
