Default Need help putting my Note 3 back to stock

Trying to put my Note 3 back to stock so I can get the Kit Kat update. Download the stock 4.3 firmware and used Odin to flash it. But as seen in the pictures, it failed. Now I can't even turn it on. When I do, it shows the message saying "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." Any help would be appreciated.

Problem solved, was trying to flash firmware version MI3. It doesn't work, because you can't downgrade to a previous version of firmware. I downloaded version MJ4 from www.sammobile.com and it worked perfectly.

You may not.. But I had problems taking the KK update OTA being as though I was 0x1. Ended up flashing the official tar file via Odin.

Had nothing to do with it ... There are two spots that need to say official in the phone and not custom ... Sometimes you may have to flash Rom in Odin boot into stock recovery factory reset and then flash the Rom in Odin again ... To get it to official and take ota without it failing
