Default Soft bricked Note 3 tmobile

Once again i am here looking for help. I was flashing the stock firmware to my Note 3 via odin and something must have gone wrong. It said failed after writing some of the file to the device. Now i am in a soft brick with no recovery. I am only able to get into download mode. I have tried reflashing the firmware via odin but it fails after getting a failure to write error. Is is possible that the phone won't accept the file because maybe the usb debugging option was reset? Phone says this is read letters after the failed download. SWREV checkfail sb(1)fused 2> binary 1. If anyone has any ideas or a link that would help, i would greatly appreciate it.

So was able to flash twrp via Odin and then reboot into recovery and flash my backup of CM11. But odin never wants to flash stock firmware for me. I like CM but i use the s pen to much so i wanted to go back to rooted stock. Any ideas on why odin isn't working for stock firmware? its still fails after a few seconds. Anyways atleast i have a usable phone for now.

1. You should give us the problem/failure message from Odin so we can read why.

2. You're on the wrong forum if you want N900T specific help.

3. You can always flash a new TW ROM from TWRP
Problem with ROMs? Try this. Still no? Ask me on Google+!
Root/TWRP/Kernel/ROM/Downgradable and KNOX 0x0 on N900W8? My guide.

Phone: Note 3 - Rogers SM-N900W8
C-RoM v7.1, Temasek v3.76, TWRP 2.7.1, NA2 BL, NB7 Modem, KNOX 0x0

Tablet: Nexus 7 (2012)
PA 4.2 Beta 2, TWRP 2.7, Multiboot - UbTouch, Ub13.10, PA, CM11

Note 3 ◆ Xperia Tab P ◆ Nexus 7 ◆ Note II LTE ◆ S III LTE ◆ One X ◆ Note I ◆ Galaxy Nexus ◆ S II LTE ◆ S II

"SWREV checkfail sb(1)fused 2> binary 1" usually means you are trying to downgrade something in a way that Samsung/T-Mobile does not want you to.

Most likely you need to download the latest firmware (and not the old one):
