Hi everyone,
Last night I decided to root my note pro sm-p900. I just kinda mindlessly followed the instructions on a website I found thinking it'd be easy since I'd done basically the same thing before with a galaxy s4. But once I started odin my root failed and now I'm stuck on the 'firmware failure try the kies emergency recovery thing' screen. At that point I kinda woke up and read the Web site closely and realized that it had me extract the tar.md5 to my desktop! Is that the problem? I shouldn't have extracted that right?

Anyways what is the easiest way to fix this? Do I just need a tar.md5 for stock firmware and flash that instead? Or will I need a pit file or anything?
If so does anyone have a link for the download I need? Looked on samobile but couldn't seem to find it.

Thanks!

You can get out of the soft brick by flashing the B3 recovery tar from this post.
