Unhappy [Q] System Software Not Authorizedand Odin problem HELP.

Okay, so yesterday I flashed a Gummy 4.4 rom nightly and went to boot into Recovery to flash a different ROM and this pop occurred "System software authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on you phone." I know I have to use Odin to return to stock but my phone isn't showing up in Odin. The yellow bar doesn't show up and I've installed the Samsung USB drivers for my phone but I can't for the life of me make my phone show up in Odin. Please help. I'm also on windows Vista if that's causing the problem.

What tar file are you trying to flash? If it ends in "gz" then you have to use Odin 3.07 or better ( gz files have to be uinzipped first). If the file ends in "md5" then an earlier version will work. You are putting your phone in Download Mode" correct? Hold the volume down button and power button at the same time. Don't release until you see the yellow triangle. Volume up then you should be ready to flash.

It's because you have to flash a 4.4 kernel with the ROM before you boot.
