Default GS4 - Back to stock MDK via odin "Fail"

My fear is I am SOL... Anyway, was running the GPE, and wanted to go back to HD14... Made the mistake of formatting data via TWRP, and now I am borked.

So...From reading basically figured out I need to ODIN back to sock MDK, and factor reset via stock recovery. Here's my problem...

I downloaded the wilco stock MDK TAR, and then went to flash it in odin 3.07... I am able to get in to download mode, so I think Boom! Great I am on my way... Not so much...

I go to flash the TAR, I get FAILED on odin screen, but now my phone in the top left corner says "Start" in red, and I have a little progress bar under "Do not turn off target" warning.

Am I totally screwed? Does anyone have a link to an official MDK odin file?

Thanks...
