Default [Q] Possible Permanent Brick. Please Help

Hello, I was trying to unroot my phone in order to get the latest 4.4 update on galaxy note 3 (tmobile version). I was using Odin and it stated that it was a failure. Once done, my phone brought me to this screen which gave me options. "Reboot System now" "Apply update from ADB" "Apply update from external storage" "wipe data/factory reset" "wipe cache partition" and "apply update from cache". Under all of this it states "E: failed to mount /system (invalid argument). I tried wiping my data, however it did not work. I also tried taking out the battery several times and rebooting the device, but it stays stuck on the samsung logo. I originally had TWRP as my recovery. Everytime I get stuck into the samsung logo after I take out the battery I boot into recovery and the same screen shows up. I was told that I could download the latest nf4 firmware and Odin it, but im not exactly sure where I can get the file and how to "place" it in Odin. Anything I can do to fix it? Help would highly be appreciated. Please help.

Your phone is NOT bricked at all.

All you need to do is Odin flash the stock official 4.4.2 NF4 firmware which
can be found at http://SamMobile.com OR http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=33153

Here is the direct download link for Odin, place the firmware into the
PDA slot in Odin: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/45687485/Odin85.zip

Be sure to use the original USB cable which came with the phone
for best results.

Be sure you have the latest Samsung USB drivers installed in Windows.
Here is the direct download link for the latest Samsung USB Drivers:

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
