I try many times but it still in custom status, so cannot OTA update. My phone is N9005 from Malaysia, build MJ1, with CWM recovery.

So your phone still has stock recovery? This may be the difference.

I have rooted stock firmware and want update it to the latest stock firmware using Odin because OTA doesn't work with rooted devices.
My device is SM-N900 and rooted by CF-Auto-Root.
The more advanced approach is to use Mobile Odin Pro - that way on Snapdragon version you can keep the old bootloader and automatically re-inject root and keep Knox 0x0!

In your case standard Odin might also work, latest stock firmware is generally non-wipe.
