Your Odin flash failed because you tried to flash a much older firmware. LEM. You need to flash the 4.3 firmware. You can use this thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2722660
Enewman17 has one too I think. Not sure where exactly right now though.

I don't have this device so its apparently a little different than I'm used to in this regard. Check post 13 of that thread to see if that helps. Otherwise someone more familiar with that particular process will need to chime in.
