Lack of wifi shouldn't prevent you from flashing back to stock via Odin, I don't believe? Keep reading up on Odin flashing process. Surely something is getting missed. Check your md5 on all files you're trying to flash.

You're using the MK2 specific tar files right? and you made sure they fully downloaded? And you are on the I337 and not I337m or something?

Yes my baseband version and model number both end with MK2. I've also tried download numerous MK2 modules. I used safe strap and changed my baseband to MJ6. I cannot find a firmware to flash via oden. And my WiFi still refuses to turn on..... That's the only problem I'm having...

Currently using
Galaxy s4 AT&T 4.3 MK2
Saferoot
Stock ROM/Kernel
WiFi (stuck OFF)

I forgot to mention.....
If possible can someone help me with either a method to completely unroot back to the stock 4.3, or a fix for the WiFi problem. I've already also tried to factory reset after deleting safe strap and removing root (super su) still there was no luck.

What i meant is using the tar files to return to completely stock. Factory Reset only wipes the user data, and doesn't change the system. Even root can be kept through a factory reset.

When I tried to use the tar files I kept getting an error "FAIL!! (Auth). Individual files work modem, boot, & recovery. I tried using other md5 files which I later realized wasn't MK2. So now I understand I need to find the MK2-MD5 zip so that I can flash (Odin).
