Default Stuck in Odin Mode?

I have an Att Galaxy S4. It's the MF3 version. I rooted it and it works fine but I want to revert to stock ROM. I know nothing about flashing Roms as I only tweaked the phone via modules. In any case, whenever I try to reset the phone, it goes into Odin Mode. It goes into mode when I try to go into recovery mode as well. Odin Mode is a nightmare. Any suggestions?

Is that mf3 is with Knox ??
If yes then u need to overwrite boot loader. Which cannot be done thru just flashing older tar .
You need some script like we have for sprint note and s3.
Knox boot loader won't let u downgrade.

if you're on mf3 than you are either on stock ROM or your on a custom ROM using safestrap. we need more information about the situation. if your saying you want to remove safestrap and the custom ROM just say it and that's easy to find out.

if that's not the situation how then you're on stock. mf3 is a locked boot loader and you cannot put a custom recovery on it. the only way you can use a different ROM is by using safestrap
