Guys, just last week I faced the same problem..
My mistake was in choosing correct Region. Then I found my country code (TML), simply move the cursor in Region list, and it'll display country name..
Check link here.

If you can get Kies to connect, it should give you 3 codes, all starting with G900H. Mine where XXXU1... HOJV1... XXXU1... I then downloaded a firmware with the same initial codes, mostly the HOJV1 seemed to matter. Followed by country code in parenthesis. Might be worth checking if the country code matches your actual country? It seems matching CSC image version (HOJV1 in my case which was available in many countries) is enough to get a successful flash.
