Probly the Knox counter. From what I've heard if you flash anything including a stock file with no mods it trips it. No positive if this applies to you but read this link: http://omegadroid.co/wanted-knox-void-warranty-0x1/

Did you do a full wipe before you connect to Odin and once connected to Odin tick nand erase all.

I'd suggest you reinstall the samsung USB drivers.. I have the best luck reinstalling from KIES. Looking at your pic I don't see the device detected-- should be listed in one of the two rows below your "FAIL" -- its not seeing your device yet. Should say "COM1:" or something there if memory serves..

I fought doing this for a couple days from within a Windows VM on mac (running VMware fusion) and it was a total bust, had to run odin from a PC in the end (bootcamp on the mac but thats another story) and it never actually saw my device-- looked just like what you have until I got the drivers running.
