you have a backup to restore? you try restoring to a backup it worked on and get a lock then try whatever rom? what did you do prior to it not working?

It is critical that you wipe the device properly prior to an Odin restore....otherwise you are left with file remnants that will affect the new flash...

Once you have a good stock rom copy on the PC...and Odin version 3.0.9....do the following...

Use towelroot and root the device again...then load busybox and safestrap recovery again...

Once complete...."make a backup"...then...
wipe cache, system, and data just like usual using safestrap...

Then arrow back to the internal data wipe prompt inside of safestrap...and type "yes" to confirm the wipe of the data/media partition on your phone...

Note:...the above function is potentially dangerous as it "will " wipe all data from the data/media partition....including safestrap recovery...(the backup you made will save you if something goes wrong)...

Once the internal data wipe is complete....pull the battery to completely power down the device....

Wait 30 seconds and replace the battery....then boot into download mode for Odin flash of the stock rom....

Flash the rom....and test....
