Phone [Q] Returning to Stock Issues

I bought a note2 on swappa and I didn't get any service when I activated because my profile was out of date( I think). It came with cm11 so I had to go to stock to update the profile. I tried using Odin to flash Stock but when the phone boots after the Sprint animation it goes to Samsung and just hangs. I've tried reflashing and redownloading to no avail.

In download mode my phone says
Current Binary: Samsung Official
System Status: Custom //Could this be the problem? What does the Custom here mean?
Knox warranty void: 0
AP SWREV: A2

With the knox on my phone now I'm a little nervous to go any further without knowing exactly what I should do. I have been researching this problem for the last 3 days now and I feel stuck. Where should I go from here?

Use TWRP recovery and flash billards return to stock MC2. This will revert your bootloader to a non-Knox state.

If what I've said helped or contributed in any way, you don't have to buy me anything... just hit the thanks button.

So glad I jumped Sprint for T-Mo with my new Stock Note III on 4.4.2
