    Default I bricked my phone like a noob. HELP!!!

    I have cwm recovery installed on my Tmobile(USA) galaxy s3 T999L. I bricked the phone by choosing the wrong options in recovery and messing around in there too much. Before that I tried to flash a rom and I guess it wasnt the right version (oh the pain of learning!) . I have no backup so I am trying to flash a stock ROM with Odin.

    I can't get my phone bast the recovery boot. I was able to get it in to download mode. When I try to load the new system image in Odin it fails. Ive tried 4 versions of Odin and the same thing happens. Here is the log:

    <OSM> T999UVDMD5_T999TMBDMD5_T999UVDMD5_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
    <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..

    <ID:0/007>
    <ID:0/007> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    I don't have a micro SIM card reader, if I did I might be able to just flash the correct version of a custom ROM on there but I don't have one and my Computer won't show me the phone in Windows. Im not even sure if that'd work. Any help would be appreciated

    You might need to look at getting a JTAG service.
