Unhappy [Q] How to flash back to stock for warranty? Odin doesn't work (error)

Yo Guys! I think my bootloader was already updated, and I tried to flash back to original 4.3 or 4.1.2, but nothing of it worked.

When I try to flash f.e. the

Code:
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> I9300XXEMR2_I9300VFREMA3_I9300BUEMA1_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> tz.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!! 
<ID:0/003> sboot.bin
<ID:0/003> system.img
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
Can someone please help me I was on CM 10.2/CM11 and wanted to restore factory images, because my Audio Plug-In didnt work properly anymore and my screen had some pixel errors.

I tried to flash a CWM touch recovery, but that did work only once - then flashed the bootloader downgrade Restore_Bootloader_XXBLFB.zip, but
I still couldnt flash any factory firmware

I also tried this here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2083860

Tried method 2 of that one, didnt get me in position to install the stock firmware.

Does anyone have any advice?

I still can enter CWM (or install it) and can enter Download Mode

I tried 4.3, 4.1.2 and 4.0.4 , nothing worked

Have you tried another version of ODIN? I used to have some issue with version 3.0 and above. So it seems that version 1.8.5 is more stable that the new ones... try redownload your ROM, maybe it has some issues too.
Finally, use SAMSUNG SG3 TOOLKIT, I have used that too and without any issue.
Good Luck
