I am trying to flash phone back to stock ROM due to my phone only booting in Odin mode, but I keep getting FAIL! flash attempts in Odin. The failure occurs at the message line FAIL! (Auth). I have tried flashing VRUAMDK_NoWipe.tar and CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.

Were you originally on MDK? If so, have you checked MD5?

Sorry the full filename is VRUAMDK_NoWipe.tar.md5. Is that what you're talking about?

No. What build were you on before your problems?

I don't remember other than I was at 4.3. I had my phone rooted using SuperSU and I tried unrooting so I could download the latest OTA. I was still getting errors to install updates after disabling SuperSU and was getting sick of my phone constantly trying to update so I decided to try to revert back to stock. I downloaded Odin and the TAR file I mentioned and followed the instructions to restore back to stock ROM. I received that error and found in another forum that someone got it to work using CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505. I tried that to and same issue. I can't find any other solutions.

You need to find what build you were on because you can't flash an older build. You can only flash your original build or newer. If you want the latest OTA, (Kit Kat), you need to download the .tar file for that.

I am currently downloading Kit Kat. However, I was trying to flash it one more time to copy and paste the message lines here and now the error is "There is no PIT partition." I have already downloaded the PIT for my phone. I am I gonna have to use that now?

I think you might me be over complicating things. If you're going with NC5 (Kit Kat) and you can use Odin, I think all you're going to need is the .tar file.

So the "no PIT partition" message isn't a problem?
