Question [Q] HELP! I soft bricked my S4 and I'm lost!

Hello!

I am just lost and any help will be appreciated. I have a Galaxy S4 Sprint SPH-L720. I have it with Android 4.3 rooted and this morning I had the MK2 upgrade so I upgraded it. Big mistake! After the upgrade, I couldn't turn wifi on. I have no idea why.
So I was looking for an answer and I found that I needed to replace some files, but my device needed to be rooted for that. I had my device rooted before but after the MK2 upgrade, I lost root privileges. Then, I tried to re-root it, and apparently I did something wrong and I soft bricked my phone.

I have no idea how to fix this. I know I have to do it through ODIN, but which is the correct TAR file? How do I fix this?

Thank you in advance for any help!

Download the mja tar file and odin that. Then do a factory reset in recovery.
