There should be a md5 number from where you downloaded the rom. If so, check it with a md5 checker.
Are you on JB or KK ?

I downloaded from here: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=20392
I don't see MD5 hash anywhere.
I wanted to check it using this tuorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1135620, but no luck...

I was on JB, but currently I'm on nothing...

It says you should dl Odin 3.09, but you flashed with .07. It shouldn't really matter, but it's worth a try.
Did none of the 3 roms work ?

And if you tried to flash the KK rom, your bootloader might have been updated, so there's no going back to JB.

No. None of them worked!
I tried with Odin 3.09.
I also checked the Re-Partition tick and placed PIT file, like this guy on this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...19&postcount=2 and on this post: http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f777...n9005-1769257/

Now it is saying:

Also, the phone says: "Invalid ext4 image" or something like that...
I always gets stuck on hidden.img.ext4. What is that anyway?!?!

OK, so I flashed the device with KK FW: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=27080
And I use .PIT files mentioned in the links above.
I flashed it with Odin v3.09

After flashing it got stuck on Samsung logo. I pulled out the battery and went into Recovery (it works now ) and performed factory reset and cache clear.
After that first boot was a bit slower.
And now the phone is up and running.
And here is the message output from Odin

Code:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> N9005XXUENB3_N9005OXXENB1_N9005XXUENB1_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
