I just noticed I forgot BL.
How do you turn that option on in Odin? It's disabled for me

Yes, you forgot BL file. May be you have wrong version of Odin.

Get the correct one here: http://terafile.co/6f9352631216/Odin3_v3.09.zip

or here: https://mega.co.nz/#!UdRRyCAT!H4FyVx...uykgP2pT4rh8Ek


P.S: you should turn ON the checkbox Re-Partition.

Mate I know everyone wants to help but I would really suggest getting stock to work 1st.
Try with the bootloader and see what happens. At the point before you give up, that's when you get desperate and try anything....

With HK Notes SweetROM appears to be the only fix from the ext 4 error -- I dunno if he has a HK Note or not because thread is TL;DR

I have no idea what to do... Is it fixable? I can't get to recovery. Only download mode.

PS: i searched for an answer here and found someone with a similar problem. He just flashed a ROM and it worked for him. I tried to do the same, and no luck...

This is the ONLY solution to this issue at this point. Read the instructions carefully, and follow to the dot.

Worked for me on a Hong Kong 16GB N9005 which was stuck on the 'Samsung Galaxy Note 3' screen after getting a 'Invalid: ext4 image' and 'Repartioning failed' errors while installing 4.4.2 OFFICIAL (Single File ROM) via Odin.


Binary: Custom
Knox: 0x1

Method:


In Odin mode

1. Flash the latest cf-autoroot (Kitkat support) [http://download.chainfire.eu/352/CF-...x-smn9005.zip]
2. Flash the Chenglu's latest CWM - 6.0.4.6 (the one that supports KitKat) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2454079

Download Sweet Rom and place it in ExtSDcard (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2487425)

I tried external sd-card with various format and could not install the ROM. After format my SD Card to FAT32, the ROM can be installed.

On Device

1. Boot in to Recovery mode by Volume up + Home + Power
2. Wipe Factory reset / Dalvik Cache
3. Format /System (under "mount and storage" menu) [IMPORTANT STEP]
4. Install Rom from SD Card
