You did not get drop call on the MI3 modem? why not use the MJ4 file?
See here for the MJ4 full stock. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2549035 What version of Odin are you using? I have found that the v1.85 and v3.09 works best. See here for more Odin versions https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzwji1gufy...1.85_v1.83.zip If you still choose to use the MI3 tar make sure that you are using the PDA or AP slot and that "re-partition" is off.

My screen now says Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

Any suggestions ?

What firmware where you before trying to flash the MI3 firmware?
