Default [Q] Firmware upgrade encountered error

Hi, im new here sorry if posted in wrong section

I tryed rooting my Samsung Galaxy Note

I followed every step and unfortunantly after 40 seconds of pressing start I recieved on Odin a red Fail box
Odin looked like it had finished what it was doing even though it failed, so I pressed exit and disconnected the phone.

when I switched the phone back on I got this message
"Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies & try again"

So I connected to Kies but the phone wont connect. I tryed the recovery but ive never used Kies before so there was no files to recover.
I tryed firmware and initialisation by putting my model and seriel number in but there was nothing found for Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

I dont want to go any further as im not sure what im doing now and ive stopped researching as im nit sure what websites to trust or able to find a correct answer to my issue.

My phones a
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
SM N900
Android Jelly Bean 4.3
United kingdom

(Not sure of other details I cant get into phone to look)
I thought I would come her as my friend recommended the site. I need help on how to make my phone work again.

I can still boot in download mode but I cant connect to computer but I havent tryed to connect to Odin.

ive rooted 5 of my other phones and tablets in the past and never had an issue, so this is new to me

Any fix I am happy with weather its a root fix or back to normal fix I just want my phone working again.

I definantly wont be rooting again im worrying my phone wont work at all now


thank you for any help!

KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0X0

(In gray)
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT ENABLE (CSB)
AP SWREV: S2, T2, A2, A2, P2

then theres a pic of a phone, yellow triangle with an exclamation mark and a computer

then underneath the firmware upgrade error.

Default case elovmos

Im not 100% sure if I enabled USB debugging first. Will this cause me a problem?

Mate. .. Get odin 3.09 and download firmware from sammobile.com. Try with the older firmware versions first like MI6 or something. ... If that don't work. .. Flash MJ7 latest firmware(can't go backwards once you Flash this firmware) and will definitely work

They have a different server now. A lot slower though...
