Thanks in advance .
notice: i used odin3 v3.07 to install 4.3 stock rom, and still fails.
If it was my phone the first thing I would do is to plug the usb cable into a different usb port
and then reboot the computer before using Odin.
Then I would re-download the "M919TMBAMDL_M919UVUAMDL_HOME.tar.md5" just
in case it got corrupted and try Odin flashing the phone again.
I would be sure to only plug the usb cable into the phone AFTER
seeing the [COM:xx] in Odin light up.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
