Your intuition is correct. The discharge essentially wipes out the need for credit repair. The only exception may be if there is a creditor reporting on a tradeline that has failed to acknowledge your bankruptcy discharge. In that case, it needs to be disputed to ensure your discharge is accurately reported. But other than that, wholesale credit repair seems pointless. Your discharge will "reset" your credit to a lowered score and you just need to increase it now over time. A secured credit card is a great way to establish an account and start getting positive tradelines on your report.
Does that answer everything for you?
