Unhappy [Q] Cannot reflash 4.2 stock rom

Hey guys its been a long while since i posted ive been doing pretty good on my own, until today.
I need so help on a SHG-M919
tried rooting it and had problems with samsung KNOX blocking su so i wasnt fully rooted, i tried a couple other things like kingo app and motochopper still a no go.
I think my problem started when i did the update to 4.3 b4 i rooted it, i figured ill just flash it back to 4.2 and i would be good. WRONG
Now im softed bricked, i cant get in to recovery mode only download mode (odin mode). When i use odin the flash fails every time. so now i look at the phone while in odin mode i see that write protection is enabled. what do i do so i can write or flash to the system files. The galaxy s3 wasn't even this difficult.

Once you are on 4.3 KNOX, you can not downgrade to earlier bootloaders like 4.2. Go into download mode, odin flash a stock 4.3 recovery, and you will no longer be bricked. Then flash CF Auto Root (look for the threads in xda, lots of links). You will be in 4.3 with root. Hope that helps.

The stock 4.3 ROM can be obtained at:

Not much you can do about how long it takes. It takes what it takes and sometimes requires multiple attempts to get a successful download.
