AT&T S3: Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again
I have a SGH-I747 AT&T on which I tried to change to a custom ROM. I have successfully done this before, I just panicked this time and pulled the plug on my phone due to my computer saying it would restart in 15 minutes and I didn't have the option to stop it. Now when I turn it on, an error comes as follows:
PRODUCT NAME: SGH-I747
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (1 counts)
CURRENT BINARY: Custom
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 1
BOOTLOADER AP SWREV: 2
Firmware uprgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again.
Now, I've tried following a few guides. However, I always get stuck on the part where they ask me to upload PDA to Odin because Odin doesn't show the .tar.md5 in any directory. When I add the location of the PDA to Odin, it shows up, however, the flash to stock ROM fails immediately. Please tell me what I might be doing wrong. Also, most sites direct you to samsung-updates.com for a stock ROM. However, due to the Hotfile shutdown, I have not been able to find my stock ROM anywhere. Please direct me to a good site where I can find a good unrooted or unmodded stock ROM, preferrably v4.3. Maybe direction do a good guide might help. Also, I am able to go into download mode, but not recovery.

I am now able to use PDA files by using a different account. However, the flashing process fails after it says "NAND Write Start!!". The exact text is as follows:
<ID:0/005> File analysis..
<ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/005> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/005> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/005> FAIL! (Auth)
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
What is wrong?
