Default I need assistance with Pit and Odin etc

Let me just say I have been in this business long enough and it has been a while since I have been in a situation like this. So I'm running the project x port. And I want to upgrade to official 4.4. I download the tar and try to Odin it. I get this PIT error, like it requires the PIT file for something. Long story short I have been trying to flash the stock 4.3 rom and original PIT, stock 4.4 and kk Pit file. So they all keep failing and I tried ode and heimdall. Every time there is a Pit error and it won't go further.
I thought I had a 800 dollar brick with all this flashing but it boots up fine and works fine. I did not expect that to happen. And I can't boot to recovery.
So my question is:Anyone else have this experience?
Anyone have a solution?
Know why or what caused this?
How to go from project x to the newest ota?

Thanks

It simple download stock 4.3 flash that. Wipe wipe wipe. Then download the official 4.4.2 then root and so forth. Don't cheat and get modded 4.4.2. Go to sammymobile and download original and install thru Odin. A few videos in threads show how

Go to dev section and download the tar. Put phone in download mode. Odin 3.7 or 3.9 your choice load the tar in the "AP" section and hit start. It may fail the first time. Did for me, and pretty much everybody else. Don't freak. If at first you don't succeed. So boot back into download mode and run the process a second time, this time it will go all the way through and you will have a nice clean Kitty Kat Phone.
