I also have write protected-enable but everything installs just fine.
I now have team win recovery project and a omega v9 rom.

Why don't you try reinstalling everything from the start.

Install the default galaxy s 4 rom via odin.

then install team win recovery project again via odin.

if all goes well you have your recovery.

after that restore your nandroid (if you have one) or install the rom of your choice.

I came to same issue and Odin was not able to flash it i had no kies and no drivers issue and then i used original cable and guess what that was the main issue

What worked for me is CHANGING cable

Any one having similar issue can ...

Change the cable or USB port / restart and it will work for sure

Confirming, using an official cable meant Odin flashed properly. My 3M charge cable seemingly caused the write to fail.

Big thanks for your remark. My problem: I just tried to use a usb cable that came with a cheap charger. It seems some of those cables are pure charging cables, no other wires. Of course neither odin nor kies (or even media connection etc.) will work over one of these

I really can not find an explanation for this, but it just worked for my I9505!! After several attempts with a non-original usb cable and several versions of Odin (including 1.85, 3.04, 3.06 and 3.07), I got to flash CF autoroot with the original cable and Odin v1.85.

You should also install a dedicated line version of the recovery

I have protection enabled to. But I'm using Odin 3.04 and I don't have no problem.

And another thing: I don't have nowhere counter to show me how many times I installed roms
