Hi welcome to the forum. Your phone sounds like it is probably soft bricked. You need to Odin the firmware back to your phone and then root it. Make sure if you had 4.3 on your phone not to use an older firmware or your phone will hard brick! Check out the root forum for your phone: (International) Galaxy S3 - All Things Root - Android Forums
