Why not just flash the latest fw, bl/cp/ap/csc. Make sure you're on the right odin. Another option is to try restoring with smart switch or whatever samsungs own software is called.Actually it is possible to hard-brick the device with flashing stock firmware, the boot processing files which matches the hardware and software can cause big damages to the phone during the upgrade process and that was the case with me that I got my device hard-bricked, Frp lock was just a step that blocked me for using the phone since it was working fine then a flash with stock firmware was required to bypass it but unfortunately the hard-brick occurred while upgrading the device through Odin with latest stock Samsung firmware

3. Is installing the aurora rom a better choice than installing a USA rom? (I want to use carrier-only features).
