Unhappy { Help} revert galaxy s4 i9505 to its original m919

so here is what happened. i have a t-mobile galaxy s4 ( m919) that was running 4.3. However, i installed wanamlite rom in it, and that messed my phone up( one reason was i couldnt use data internet). now my model number is I9505 instead of M919. i installled cyanogenmod 11 rom. then thought that it could be easier now to go back to my stock model( m919). and everytime i try to flash the M919UVUAMDL_M919TMBAMDL_M919UVUAMDL_HOME.tar.md5 , i get a big FAIL from odin3. so since my model number is I9505 after flashing wanamlite, i thought why not installing i9505 stock rom. so i did and still got a big FAIL on odin3. however, i was able to flash 4.4.2 stock rom for I9505, but its glitchy .So clearly i wanna go back to my stock model M919 and install stock rom (4.3) if its possible ??. im sorry guys, im a noob and i need your help. Thanks in advance .

notice: i used odin3 v3.07 to install 4.3 stock rom, and still fails.

I'd Odin to stock and start over. Update your Odin and get your stock image from sammobile.

If you have a 4.3 MK2 bootloader you can NOT Odin back to MDL which is 4.2 MDL base.
Find the 4.3 stock firmware tar file and Odin flash that.

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.

Good luck!
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).

not sure what MK2 bootloader is and how to find out if i i have it. as i said, my model number is I9505 and running 4.4.2, not my stock m919 4.3. also i did download the stock rom m919 4.3 without any corruption. it still gives me a Big fail. any suggestions from this point are greatly appreciated. Thanks

Mk2 is the new modem and bootloader that came with 4.3.
You can check in about phone. Here's where it says under baseband.
