You need to find the MJA or MK2 .tar file. Once you've upgraded to 4.3, you cannot go back.

People that don't search correctly. The guy above me is right. You are trying to Odin a 4.2.2 tar while on 4.3. This is impossible.

Thanks! Saved by google... Again! I was trying to go back to stock and all I had was a 4.2.2 to go back to. Couldn't figure out why odin was stuck.

By Odin getting stuck do you mean it was failing? If so it seems that you were on MK2 4.3 and you can't go back to 4.2.2 via tar since Knox boot loader got introduced.
