You were probably almost there with what you did in your first post. However you used an older version of the stock firmware than was on your phone so it failed. Get the KitKat firmware (NB4) and do what you originally tried.

I also recommend using at least Odin 3.07 though I know 3.09 works because I use it.

Basically boot phone to download mode, attach USB cable, let it recognize phone, open Odin, select your proper stock firmware in I think the second of the four places where you can specify the file, press start. Reboot when done.

I already did that and it doesnt go past the samsung boot screen, it doesnt go to recovery either, he might be right but the links of the mega website wont let me download the NB4
