Default UID Inconsistent error: Need help in hard resetting phone


I am plannning to sell my i9500 model. I was using Arrow Rom V11 (4.3 without knox) before deciding this. In order to give valid warranty phone to the buyer, I ventured into installing stock 4.3 rom on the phone. As I a, from India, I have downloaded Indian 4.3 stock firware from Sammobile and flashed through ODIN. When the flashsin is done, the I am getting this "UID Inconsistent" message and along with many other"process stopped" messgaes. so I am not even abnle to get into settings menu to do a factory reset.

I read somewhere that "finxing permissions" through TWRP will solve the problem. But that will create another problem to me i.e lost warranty. (As i have already flashed 4.3 stock, Knox is set in).Hence I am not sure what to do make the phone function normally?

I want to keep installing custom recovery as last option. Btw, I am not able to get into recoverymode (even stock recovery) by pressing volume up+power+home buttons. When I try that phone flashes andorid symbol momentaorly and then reboots.

It will be great if you can offer some help! thanks in advance!!!

1. Ur warranty is void (Knox 0x1) -> No warranty in some country, in others yes.
2. Install TWRP and fix perms for solve ur problems
3. Reboot and take a look if all is correct
4. Reflash STOCK ROM for let ur phone like STOCK (but with knox actived -> no solution for that atm)
