Default [Q] Soft brick after OTA

Hi! I am trying to recover via Kies, did the procedures dozen times but Always freezes and get error message. I am trying to get the original rom and install it via Odin but I canīt find it, the one I did was in hotfiles but itīs out by USA federal law. Question: can I use a T-mibile rom instead? I am using Tmobile anyway.
Thanks

As far as I know, there is no full Odin firmware package for the MJ5 as of yet, and we may not have one for a LONG time. We, proud owners of At&t Samsung Galaxy Note 3 who committed the ultimate SIN of attempting to downgrade to obtain root again with DeLaVega, are screwed for a while.

Sorry to hear you just joined our club..!

Correction: If you are still on MI9, you can, if you upgraded to MJ5...then NO

No. You shouldn't flash anything at this point, it may only worsen your situation. Best bet is to sit tight until someone finds the actual MJ5 Odin full firmware to restore your device. I haven't found any information on it yet, seems no one has.
