Default [Q] Galaxy s4 stuck

I flashed TWRP onto my phone and it went fine and I flashed a rom and it was all going good. But now it's stuck on a screen that says " Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies & try again." but when I try to use kies it can't find a device. I've tried flashing a custom recovery again and resetting my phone but I can't get any of that to work. Any tips?

Odin flash the stock firmware first and start over?

That means you have a knox enabled bootloader and that bootloader is expecting a matching or newer firmware to be flashed.

What do I need to do to fix it? What firmware should I flash for the tmobile variant. and afterwards can I still root and flash a custom rom?

Try flashing 4.3 or 4.4 from sammobile:

Yes you can still root with cf autoroot. And you will be able to flash a custom ROM.
