I recently switched to Cyanogenmod but didn't like it so I tried to reflash back to a stock firmware using Odin. However, after Odin finishes, the phone just stays on the T-Mobile 4G LTE screen with a flashing blue-cyan LED. Is there a solution or a proven firmware that anyone knows of?

Yes there is.

The solution is to go into recovery mode and do a "Factory Reset" and
wipe cache, dalvik cache, wipe system and wipe data.

Then power down the phone and boot back up into download mode
and Odin flash the stock official firmware for the N900T 4.3 phone.

Good luck!

Do you by chance have a link to the official firmware? Also, is the N900T for the T-Mobile S4?
Thanks!

Since he Odin flashed successfully, the /system wipe isn't necesaary. A cache, dalvik, and data wipe will allow the phone to boot up without having to reflash. ^.^

No, the N900T firmware is for the Samsung Tmobile NOTE 3 not the S4

Here is a fast direct download link for the original Galaxy S4 M919 4.2.2 MDL Official stock firmware:

It was not a successful flash since his phone cannot boot, he
flashed the N900T firmware which is for the Samsung Note 3.

Didn't see him state that he flashed the N900 FW.
