Hello everyone, i rooted my phone and flashed a custom rom to my S4 and i could even restore it to stock once but when i rooted it again and flash another custom rom i can't get back to stock!
odin keeps failing whatever i do it says "Can't open the serial(COM) port." for 4.4.2 stock
and "Complete(Write) Operation Failed" for 4.3 stock rom and i just cant do anything with it, i tried uninstalling the phone drivers and installing them again what should i do ?

Are you using the same "official" build you were on last before flashing a custom ROM?

do not try to flash 4.3 it will not work you cannot downgrade from 4.4.2 as your bootloader gets updated and if you do then you will only endup trigring knox binary that will void your warrenty if you care....
