Make sure you're using the Full Wipe image (SCH-I545_VZW_1_20131212083410_mwx72ql56g_fac.zip), and have extracted it to a .tar.md5
Also download the JFLTE_USA_VZW_16G.pit (assuming you have the 16GB version of the S4).
Put the .tar.md5 in the AP section and the PIT file in the PIT section.
Leave the other checkboxes in Odin at their defaults.
Take a screenshot at this point, click Start, and then take another screenshot when it completes or gives an error.
