Default ODIN problems

so im trying to odin back to stock(root666) to attempt to fix my calls not connecting.
check pda, run root666 tar image. everything goes fine, phone passes and it does everything right. until it goes to boot. it just hangs on the 4g lte neon lights screen.
ive tried to redo it twice now. each time ive let the phone sit about 20 minutes and tried a battery pull and reboot before trying again. same thing happens everytime. i can get into the factory recovery but i dont see anything that could help(i tried wiping cache)
im at my wits end now and just want my phone to work again...
help

not on 4.3, d2vzw odin 3.06 stock.vzw_root66.tar
not sure if theres anything else you need to know.
thanks in advance

Boot into recovery and do a factory reset. Should boot up after that.

im so glad someone finally replied, however i already did that on my own, got it to boot and now im stuck with a 0 imei and cant seem to find a current way to restore it. i did back it up a long time ago and have the synergy_backup_hwkeys_signed zip but dont know how to use it properly. also cant seem to find that info out.
slim can you be my hero and answer any of those questions?

Comprehensive IMEI/EFS Backup. I'm not sure why your IMEI would reset to 0 after doing a factory reset following an Odin flash of root66. I can't recall that happen off the top of my head.

Edit: I haven't had any issues with Odin flashing VRBMF1 tar, if you want that then here it is as well.

I dont think thats what caused it. im pretty sure it was borked before i tried the odin stuff but its still borked.
ive been trying to fix it but its not working. i found a program that says it can write a imei to the phone but it wont connect to the phone...im about to lose my mind...ive never had this problem before...

Restoring your previously made IMEI backup has no effect? Does your IMEI restore itself when you Odin flash VRBMF1?
