Exclamation [Q] Help with SPH-L520, PLEASE!

Tried the root method here.

And got the error:

Code:
image size too large!! W:1080, H:1920
display image fail
SECURE FAIL: KERNEL
I panicked, but figured it'd be alright if I just flashed the stock firmware. I re-downloaded the unmodified stock firmware and not I am getting the error

Code:
sw rev check fail  fused 3 > binary 2
Odin fails to flash stock at all. It seems to flash it if it's the modified one (the attempt to remove the bootloader) but it then doesn't boot.

If I try to boot phone after flashing stock and failing it says "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select revoery mode in kies & try again."

What can I do? I want to try re downloading/flashing the PIT file but i can't seem to find a download for that anywhere. Could anyone link me or maybe create a backup pit from their phones I could use?

I have no idea what to do...

Default Same Issue

I flashed Cyanogenmod and it was working smoothly until I would attempt to load certain apps like Tribal wars or if I was in Game of war, the text would lag after I type a single line of wording then it would jerk up and cause the app to crash. Also, after a few reboots I noticed it automatically uninstalled half of my total apps and I had to redownload them all. I would like to reverse what I did so I installed the stock firmware for my SPH-L520 with this method.

My phone's specs mentioned on Odin Download Mode..

PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L520
CURRENT BINARY: CUSTOM
SYSTEM STATUS: CUSTOM
KNOX KERNAL LOCK: 0x0
KNOX WARRENTY VOID: 0x1
CSB-CONFIG-LSB: 0x30
BOOTLOADER AP SWREV: 4
WRITE PROTECTION: ENABLE

I would get the following error after attempting to flash stock firmware..

What it says on Odin3 v3.07..

Anyone mind shedding some light on this?
