Same happened to me when i used mobile Odin. The bootloader wasn't updated.

Did you use Odin 1.85? And did you tick the option update new bootloader? If not do that.

If did that then wipe cache and data reset from recovery.

You know if the phone is up and running. Kitkat can't boot without new bootloader. So if the phone is working there is no issues.

just FYI,
if you want to flash TW custom ROM, the best you use is Chenglu CWM. So far I seldom see user complain got problem during flashing with this CWM.
TWRP, some users got problem, some are not.
