Default Firmware upgrade encountered an issue

It looks like I got myself in a pickle. I have a GS4 R970 running 4.2.2 on US Cellular. I picked up my phone today and successfully rooted it with instructions from DroidView using files from chainfire. I then installed CWM recovery with ROM Manager and backed up my ROM with it. I decided to replace chainfires SU with the one fom CWM like I had on my S3. After rebooting from recovery mode I noticed I had lost root so I used the same method to root it again because I thought it had reset itself. Before the reboot occurred there was option to prevent the possibility of the ROM flashing itself to stock. I went to select the Yes option but bumped the power button which selected No. While trying to reroot and failing, the phone displayed the message "Invalid percent of drawing download progress bar." On reboot the error “Firmware upgrade encountered an issue“ along with a cone and a couple of other pics. I have tried to get into recovery mode several times but repeatedly get this error. I can get into download mode and have tried to flash the stock ROM for this phone but it fails in Odin 3.0.7. Odin sees my phone and verifies the md5 but fails very quickly upon clicking start. I tried this with KiesPDLR running in the background and disabled. I have not tried anything else out of concern for messing it up further.

When flashing I used ODIN 1.85 to root as that was what was included in the chainfire download. But I used ODIN 3.0.7 to try and unroot because that's what the DroidView directions said. Would it make any difference to use ODIN 1.85 to try and flash the stock firmware? It sees my phone as well but the F. Reset Time option is unchecked and grayed out and the directions says it needs to be checked. Don't know if that really makes a difference.
