worked for me but:
crazy enough, 15 minutes before rooting my phone, I had installed cyonagen with android 4.4.2 and the USB drivers and the cable worked fine.
Yet, Odin would not recognized the phone.
So I followed the instructions and re-installed the samsung USB drivers again, No need to reboot the computer, I just unplugged the USB cable and plugged it again and Odin immediately recognized the phone.
All good now.
thx a lot
