You put the tar file in the pda slot? It says successful (1/1) in the info/log window at the bottom?
Gatstrom, I believe yes to all of the above. I attached a file that shows the Odin screen (didn't take - screen readout below). The successful line says (succeed 1 /0 failed) The recovery file is correct. Odin 3.09 does not say Note pro. I have also tried Odin 3.09 from a different source with the same result. The other thing I can think of is after flashing and I take the usb cord from the phone my steps are to turn off the phone and turn it on to recovery with the three finger steps. Is their anything else I need to do at this point. Should I be in TWRP now? I find myself in stock recovery system and it gives me I think 5 options. I am just rebooting. Should I be using one of the other options.
I unzipped Odin with 7z. I am using an original samsung USB cable connected directly to the computer and I turned off antivirus before flashing. There is no indication that Kies is operating any services in the background. I also downloaded he latest drivers
Auto reboot and f.reset time checked

I got it to work. On the TWRP thread at original development forum on page 48 or 49 there was someone with the exact same problem. Bigbiff told the user to uncheck auto reboot in odin and then to boot directly into recovery. I did and it worked. I was unaware that you could root directly from TWRP and a quick stop at the play store. I then loaded your debloated rom and I'll see how it goes once everything updates.
I am so F$%^King excited. I have spent scores of hours attempting to get this to work.
Thanks for all of your help (it helped)
