I've done it enough where I have it memorized.
Flash mj5 firmware with Odin. Install vcredist packages and zadig driver. Flash mj5 pit and m19 fix system image with heimdal frontend. Go to stock recovery flash csc zip. Go back flash 24...something zip. Reboot extract rdlv zip for root in internal sd. Reboot. Check for superuser. Reboot and enjoy! There were times where pc couldn't detect my device. I just kept fiddling around until I finally got it.

I apologize for my ignorance, but how do I flash MJ5 with Odin? I've never really tinkered with such a thing.

Step 3 in op. Make sure to unzip ap,bl,cp.

Another thing you can try. If you still have safestrap installed and a 4.3 mj5 backup. Use Odin flash mj5 ap and bl partitions. Reboot. Go to safestrap recovery and restore your mj5 rom. Basically use drake's to get safestrap instructions. Or try this if you don't have a backup. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=49629934

Awesome! I just did all the steps up to flashing in Heimdall and I encountered no problems and I'm on the AT&T splash screen now! I'll report if I have any troubles.

Is it normal for the phone to be stuck on the AT&T splash screen for a prolonged amount of time?

First boot does take a little longer. Did you flash the csc and other zip in Stock recovery before rebooting to your system?

No, I did not place the files on my phone. Can I do it on the internal sd or is it mandatory to do it on the external? If external, I do not have any at the current moment.

Yep, the MD5 numbers are good. But do I need an external micro sd card and place the files in there as op said to do so? Or is there a way to access the internal storage through the stock recovery?

Op did state external sd. If your booted into your system. Try placing those files onto your internal sd then flash.
