So i have a T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919, and the story goes like this

so i decided to root it, and used CWM, and installed superuser. Superuser read that there was no binary, so i searched on forums to help me out. Someone said that installing MDB-setuidoff.zip would help, and now it is soft bricked, stuck on the Galaxy S4 logo reading

"Kernel Not Seandroid Enforcing"

So i figured, that it was a kernel problem, so i looked for the stock kernel, and upon attempted installation, CWM recovery said it was aborted and not installed. At this point i said screw it, and decided to try and unroot, but now using ODIN 3.07, using the stock tar.md5 from galaxys4root website

when i try to flash the PDA, it reads "FAIL" and an error

"<ID:0/006> File analysis..
<ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/006> Initialzation..
<ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/006> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/006> sbl2.mbn
<ID:0/006> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/006> sbl3.mbn
<ID:0/006> rpm.mbn
<ID:0/006> aboot.mbn
<ID:0/006> FAIL! (Auth)
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)"

i can still reach odin, and recovery mode, but need help getting a working phone again. Completely out of ideas, maybe someone can chime in and help? I don't mind going back into stock unrooted state, or some kind of different root/rom as long as its stable. Help me get my phone back!

thanks in advance
