Default recovering from brick using odin (advanced)

Hi, I have my S4 which I love. I'm flashing it pretty regularly with new roms, kernels. It's of course rooted, and in a knox-fail state, but works great for me.

The i9505 uses the same tools as the old note 10.1 (albeit that being exynos, like the i9500). For those experienced in odin, and recovering froma bad flash I don't suppose any of you would be so kind as to check out my thread over on those forums - I have a brick I'm struggling to recover (emergency download mode, all odin flashes fail) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=53170432. I suspect the same principles apply

Much obliged.

Have you tried flashing official firmware for 8010 in Odin whilst using the 8010 PIT file to repartition back to 8010 partition table?

Yes though I only had an old pit file and the later firmwares. Finding a known good combination of pit (elusive) and formats would be useful. Any suggestions?
