I was having issues with my phone that resulted in me having to Odin back to mj7.. I didn't really notice or realize that it was mj7 I was flashing..

I was fortunate enough to get my s4 when it was still pre-updated and therefore never accepted the OTA that was bugging me to download. I forget the actual version but up until a few hours ago when I ODINed back to mj7, I was flashing roms left and right. Mainly all of the newest kit kat 4.4.2 nightlies and stuff without any problems.

My question pretty much is am I now screwed in terms of being able to go back to how things were? Isn't it possible that I can just download the firmware tar file I was on before and flash that through odin? Skimming through some info I Googled it's looking more and more like my worst expectations have come to fruition.

Don't tell me that I could have just made sure I flashed a different file through odin and avoided this whole mess.. I really miss using 4.4.2 and flashing roms and stuff without having to worry about what the hell "safestrap" and stuff is.. what are my options right now? No odin flash to get me back to where I was??

Do you still have that file you can send through 4shared or something. Right now my phone is sitting on a screen that says: "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again. When I try it in Kies it says Kies does not support this feature for this device. Or something to that effect. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
