I am surprised that the aboot file was giving you a problem because the bootloader can be downgraded as long as it is not a 4.3 bootloader.

Do you recall exactly which ROM was on the phone when you got it? Where did you get the stock ROM?

It was a CM11 Nightly ROM from the very beginning of February. And before that it was a CM10.2 Stable ROM.

Which stock ROM was on your phone before you loaded a custom ROM?

I have no idea. It was when I first got the phone in November of 2012.

Sounds like your phone may be running a 4.3 bootloader which means your bootloader is locked and cannot be downgraded. This may explain why you are getting errors when trying to flash Odin. There is no stock AT&T 4.3 ROM that can be flashed via Odin.
