Default Nearly busted my galaxy s3, help?

Hi all.

I just joined, and this is my first post. I'm from Vermont, and I'm a Database Admin, and I play a few sports in my free time.

I have a Galaxy S3 with the Andriod 4.3 version OS on it. I wanted to install Cyangenmod on it. I used something called safe root, which worked. Next I tried to use something called goomanager to boot in to a recovery mode which is where I would tell it where the zip is to install the custom os. This is where things went bad. It errored with a kernal message, and told me i had to go to the verizon store. I was able to get back in to the phone by going in to download mode, then rebooting the phone from there. However my phone is now running very slow, screens are taking forever to come up, the address book can't find the name linked to the number right away, it takes like 5 seconds to match it. So I read my problem is they have not figured out a way to unlock the bootloader on version 4.3. I can't do a factory reset because I get that kernal error. Does anyone know a way to get this phone back to the condition i bought it in, a factory reset basically. Thanks for any help )
