Hello, I was trying to edit things in my mobile hotspot so I could tether for free, I restarted my phone and cant get passed the logo. I put it in ODIN Mode and am trying to flash my phone but am not having any success.

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.

I was running 4.3 before attempting to flash. I was using 3.07 Odin, I'll try downloading your suggestions. Thank you for the links

The tar you are using has a old bootloader that is why it fails. .. download the mj4 tar and flash in Odin and it will pass unless you updated to a kit kat bootloader .... Then it won't ...
