Hi there,

First try getting into recovery again!

Turn device off completely and leave for a minute or so......
Hold Power + Volume Up (no need for home button)
Wait for Vibration and Samsung Logo to appear then the writing in the top left corner....
Release the Power button but keep Volume Up pressed
Wait for Vibration and Samsung logo and writing to appear then let go of the volume rocker
Hopefully will boot to recovery

Factory reset the device and reboot......

If above fails try below............

You need to flash the latest firmware for your device........Which must be 4.3 firmware due to the KNOX boot loader you have, which if you did not know you have void your KNOX warranty 0x1 ( you cannot use the knox application anymore and this is currently irreversible ). Check what the latest firmware is HERE and flash through odin........If your phone is in boot loop after flashing or stuck at the logo then boot into recovery (if possible) and factory reset the device and re-boot.

Flashing any old firmware won't work
I am on holiday. Back soon, maybe
