Well, I tried to install http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2683507 and I've done it before, but this time I'm having trouble and I think I screwed up.

I downloaded it, copied it to my SD card in my phone, made a backup ( or so I thought ), wiped, and well it fails
whenever I try to flash it says
E:error opening '/data/data/com.android.chrome/cache/com,google,Chrome.
E: error: Too many open files
E: Unable to open zip file
Error flashing zip 'external_sd/V9 (1).zip'

This is kind of urgent I no longer have a phone now

EDIT: WELL I have it working again THANK THE GODS I honestly don't know how. I just sort of well, kept at it. I kind of figured the download got a little messed up, so I downloaded a different ROM, turned the phone off, and well it did the same thing. by now I'm freaking out, thinking "holy **** I finally did it, I ruined it." But I refused to stop, I just kinda kept trying to get it to work, I honestly don't know how I got it to work, and I don't even care. I DID notice when the ROM did get installed it said on TWRP the same message, but that was after the ROM installed. so I have no idea.

Glad to hear you got it going.

In case you need to in the future to Odin back to stock you download the firmware from Samsung:

Then you go into download mode and using Odin (on your laptop) you flash the stock firmware.
