Default [Q] Stuck in custom ROM with no recovery

Model: SGH-1337
Firmware: NC1
Version: 4.4.2

Hello all, like the noob i am i flashed a custom ROM using safe strap recovery and only after i installed the custom ROM did i discover that it was not comparable with my recovery software, now safe strap is gone and i can only recover to the stock recovery and i cant flash back to my stock ROM. i have been looking into using the software ODIN but i want to be sure that i am going in the right direction before i do something worse to my phone, any advice is most appreciated, thank you.

If safestrap is gone Odin is your only choice. You'll need to flash the nb1 tar file in Odin. Then ota to nc1 and start over with towel root and safestrap.

It's not that hard but Odin can be finicky so you might have to try different usb ports. Make sure they're 2.0 and not 3.0
