Reactivation lock is a security feature where if you lost your phone nobody can factory reset or recover the phone without entering the password. It prevents flashing root or custom recovery when on.

No just continue where you left off.

Just out of curiosity, are you on 4.4.2 before you tried to root and messed up the phone?

My original firmware is N9005ZTUENB5. I I did not have the 4G settings and I wanted root to be able to get it and suddenly that FAIL with ODIN. The phone is out of service for a week and I think I found the solution, so it can work again.
