    Default Bricked my Galaxy S3. Help?

    Hello all,
    I soft bricked my AT&T Galaxy S3. Odin is giving me issues, and so is my recovery (running philz). When I try and flash through Odin it fails. I've downloaded and redownloaded the files from multiple places, so I doubt all these files can be bad.

    Than in recovery, I get a status 7 error for every file I try.

    Prior to the soft brick I was running android 4.4.2 KitKat, and I tried to root. I flashed the wrong file by mistake. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    So you are not able to boot into recovery mode to flash anything else?
    If you can, is there a nandroid backup you can restore?

    I can boot into recovery and download mode. Sorry I left that out. I have no backup unfortunately. I'm afraid to go to an AT&T store because I voided my warrantee by flashing a custom recovery.

    OK, what have you tried in recovery mode? And what file did accidentally flash?

    I actually forget what it was. I was tired and selected the wrong file. I remember it had to do with rooting, though.

    In recovery I tried wiping and flashing stock recovery firmware

    Have you tried flashing a different ROM?

    Hmm, then I really don't know what else you could do. Other than trying a debrick image that you could probably get from XDA
