Default [Q] Sprint Galaxy Note 2 firmware upgrade encountered an issue

I have a sprint galaxy note 2 and had a custom rom on it. I wanted the stock rom back, so I downloaded it and used odin to put it on my phone. It failed and is now giving me the whole,"select recovery mode in kies and try and again" message. Recovery mode (volume up, home and power) isn't working and kies isn't detecting my device. I'm an absolute noob when it comes to this stuff.

Always try to stay away from odin. Use twrp recovery at all times unless it's really needed

You need to be in download mode to use Kies, vol-, home and power then vol+ to confirm. There's absolutely nothing wrong with using Odin, it's actually much safer than using recovery, especially using one-click packages. Put it in download mode then connect it to kies and see if that gets it working again. If not I have some other tricks you can try but we'll take it one step at a time.

This post is very old, but what is wrong with Odin? I use Odin all the time, when going back to stock, and never had a problem.. TWRP on the other hand will cause issues at time, and can not be used exclusively.
