Default [Q] Can't flash stock ROM with ODIN

I've tried doing some research but I couldn't find any solution that worked for me. I had Android 4.3 installed on my stock SPH-L720 and tried to root it without any success. When I rebooted the phone, it loaded without any issue but I noticed I couldn't make any calls or play music without the phone freezing. I decided to flash the stock ROM (L720VPUAMDC_L720SPTAMDC_L720VPUAMDC_HOME.tar.md5) using ODIN3v138, but that failed the same way the root failed.

Here's the error Odin displayed:

<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> L720VPUAMDC_L720SPTAMDC_L720VPUAMDC_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.

<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!

<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

I tried booting the phone into recovery and noticed the message, "Recovery is not seandroid enforcing". Anyway, I even wiped the phone using the stock recovery then attempting to flash stock ROM with ODIN and get the same message. I'm not sure what else to try at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

You CANNOT go back to MDC, MDL, or MF9 once you are on MJA. You are stuck with 4.3. Download MJA tar and that will get you back up and running.
