I'm on stock touchwiz, tried to root it using auto root, I enabled usb debugging, got into download mode, flashed using odin but failed. When I rebooted it showed firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please use kies and use recovery method. Please help guys.

Change the USB Port, make sure you dont connect to USB 3.0, change the cable
If all of the above failed try it on another pc

Thumbs up
I've encounter this problem once before and this is what i did to get flash success through odin.

close all running program on your pc.. start odin and plug in your usb cable.. please do not use your pc while flashing stock rom on your phone because this is why it kept falling..flashing stock rom on galaxy s4 took pretty long time since the file is big.. just wait until the process is finish..

note : you can still use download mode when you get this message ( firmware upgrade encountered an issue )

p/s : i didn't see that it already has been solved.. i'm very tired when writing this so i think i might just post it here so other member can get clue when they encounter this problem

it took time when writing this, cuz my english is bad and i don't want to just delete it
