Hello ,
first of all i am a noob at this kind of things but i really wanted to try out the 4.3 android.
while i asked some people and told me to flash via odin as the previous firmwares, it stuck? i dont know what happened, and now my phone says
"Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again"
The only thing that is working is the Volume Down+Home+Power button to get to the download mode, there it says :
KNOX WARRANTY VOID:1
AP SWREV: A2
i dont know what these are and i know i shouldn't have done something like this because i am a noob and now i am paying for my mistakes, i beg you help me my phone doesnt even start.

One more thing, i read to flash the stock firmware via odin but i tried it and it stuck at NAND write start, nothing happens after that.
I am so sorry for being totally useless but i need desperately your help,

thanks

Try pressing volume up home button and power button in the same time to enter recovery mode , there factory reset and wipe cache and your phone should boot.

Good that it works!

"i dont know what these are and i know i shouldn't have done something "

These I don't know sentences are not gonna earn any respect to you here. And for god's sake do not repeat these mistakes. Follow the XDA's most important rule : Search and Read the existing posts before you do something.
