Default Could not do normal boot, can't factory reset, Odin restore failed. Verizon GS4 Mk2

Hey everyone. I'm having some issues with my Galaxy S4 MK2 build. I'm unable to do a factory reset or install the OTA update that was released recently. Any time I try to, it gets stuck in Odin Mode and says "could not do normal boot". I tried doing an Odin restore but the process is failing.

I'm not currently at my computer with Odin, but the message I saw was similar to the message seen in this thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2759278

It doesn't appear that his issue was resolved, though. Anyone know how to fix this?

Anyone? Maybe at least a way to prevent the device from auto downloading the Ota update every morning?

To block the OTA download, freeze the SDM app.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
