What am I doing wrong???

Root Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S4 T-mobile using CF Auto-Root tool:
  1. Download the CF Auto Root zip for TMO Galaxy S4 from here. Save the file on your PC.
  2. Extract its contents and save them to a folder that’s placed on your computer’s desktop for easy access. You should get a file with the .tar.md5 extension, don’t extract any further than that.
  3. Download Odin 3.07 from here. Extract its contents.
  4. Power off the Galaxy S4 TMO completely by removing its battery. Re-insert the battery after 5 seconds have passed.
  5. Now, boot your device into Download Mode.
  6. Launch ODIN exe on your PC.
  7. Connect the phone to your computer via USB cable. ODIN should display a confirmation message that says ‘Added!!’. Continue to the next step.
  8. > if Odin doesn’t recognize the phone, then you will need to change USB ports or re-install the Samsung USB drivers, a download link is listed above in the preparation guide.
  9. Next, click the PDA button in Odin and find the ‘CF-Auto-Root-jfltetmo-jfltetmo-sghm919.tar.md5′. Load it into ODIN.
  10. > don’t change any default settings of ODIN, just make sure that the Re-Partition one is disabled.
  11. Click the START button when you’re ready for the installation to begin.
  12. After the flash is complete and the CF Auto Root tar.md5 file is installed, ODIN will say PASS and the device will restart to normal mode.
  13. Unplug the phone from PC and wait for the first boot process to complete.
  14. Check the App drawer for the SuperSU icon, which confirms that the root has been completed.
