When holding all buttons and releasing power after vibration are you getting anything to happen on the device? Not trying to butt in just trying to help. Sorry I'll stay out of it, I'm sure Jay has a handle on things.

When you said factory reset I thought you meant restore. But no, you cant reset via odin. You can turn your phone off and then use the key combo to boot into odin. Itll ask to confirm or deny booting and if you deny your phone will boot normally. Everytime you restart yoll have to do this so eventually youll have to restore through odin.

Do that and you're good.
The bad news is there needs to be a ref lash of the stock ROM. The only bad thing is you're on a Mac. I found "no data wipe" versions of the ROM which means you'll lose nothing. You just have to download the files and flash.
This would be easy as pie if you had a PC. Instead you'll have to use something else unless you have access to a PC.
The files needed are at the link at top of post.
Please tell me you have a PC and a fast connection.
If not I have a solution, but its a pain....that in next post cause I gotta dig up that link.
What's happened is Verizon has locked down the recovery and the boot loader on that build. They suck.
Its not bric led by any means. Just means a long night.
