Default [Q] Sprint Note 3 Bricked. Help??

I purchased the phone already rooted, but it was on a stock ROM running 4.3 and had TWRP recovery on it. I wanted to unroot and be completely stock, because it was acting funny (wouldn't reboot as it should from the menu, and a couple other things). So I followed this guide:

http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/

and it failed. So i tried again from my USB3.0 port and it failed. I'm stuck on the yellow triangle screen which says "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Pleas select recover mode in Kies & try again." I downloaded Kies3 and there's nothing in the firmware recovery list, and when I went to upgrade and initialization, I put in the model and s/n, it tells me that the SM-N900P isn't compatible or wont work with that.

I'm at a loss, any help would be great to get me back to a working phone! Thanks!!

Well, I managed to fix it, I downloaded "N900PVPUBMJ4_N900PSPTBMJ4_N900PVPUBMJ4_HOME.tar.m d5" from a forum on here, and that managed to work, unlike the one I had tried previously. Back in business.

Just to let you know you can't downgrade the bootloader is the reason it was failing ....

Default no root??

WHy would you want to be stock, you are missing so much, and what do you mean it was acting funny?
If you don't put a theme on your phone, it could put you to sleep with the stock UI, I can help you with that
