Default [Q] Odin Flash Failure - Advice Please

I've tried to flash my GT-I9505 using Odin and it's failed (please see screen grab below).
I used "I9505XXUBMH1-PRE-ROOTED-ODEX-FULL" from post 5 of this thread
Code:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2250824


A few weeks ago, I tried "I9505XXUBMGA-PRE-ROOTED-ODEX-FULL" from the same thread and that failed and locked up my phone.
Which I had to pay to get the phone re-flashed properly.
(I've used the above successfully in the past).

Now, I'm in the same position again with a failed flash and probably paying to have it fixed again.
On the phone itself, the progress bar is only 2mm long. So if I switch it off, it will probably mess everything up.

What should I do now, while it's still connected to the PC and how can I successfully flash it in the future ?

Thank you.

What firmware's currently on the phone ?
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Probably the best thread ever posted on XDA

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
Donate to you ?? Bahahaaaaahahahahahahaaahahaha !!!

It's 4.2.2.

I've managed to get the phone "working" again, by using "I9505XXUAME2-PRE-ROOTED-KNOX".
Which is on the same thread.
But, since I got the phone working again, I can't get WiFi to switch on. Factory reseting via Settings doesn't fix it.


All the ROMs I downloading in the past (MF8, MGA and MH1) with "ODEX" in the title from the same thread don't work.
Odin (any version), says "Not Responding" when I try them and fails to update (using Win 8.1).

Try clearing data , cache and dalvik cache from cwm and do a factory reset in cwm

Sorry, but I've no idea what you're talking about.
Simple instructions, please.

If it's for post 3: If it's the same as powering off the phone and starting it with Vol. up, Home and Power keys and resetting it that way.
That didn't for resetting the phone and the WiFi problem.
If it's for post 1, please ignore.

Edit:
Just to update.
I've lost all sound and I can't play any music or videos, even the Samsung material.

Thanks for the reply.

CWM
I've deleted the cache partition and wipe data/factory rest.
I can't find the "dalvik cache", I've seen a YT video about it, but it's in "advanced settings", which I don't have.
I'm rooted , SuperSU is installed.

Clearing cache/Dalvik ain't going to fix your problem. Your sound/WiFi is busted due to that bootloader issue. You need to flash a 'WiFi fix' (non-HLOS modem) to match your current firmware/bootloader. Go to the modem thread (search; easily found) & find a non-HLOS modem to match your current firmware (and I don't mean 4.2.2 or whatever, I mean XXUA, etc, etc)
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
