    After hours of searching and stuff, finally found this and after messing around finally got odin to flash the stock metropcs Tar, that the gentleman over Xda posted. So all credit goes to this poster techguy1214 [Request] Metro PCS Stock ROM - Page 4 - xda-developers

    I know there is another thread created, but unfortunately that guide does not work and you will be struck with a AUTH FAIL with Odin, and mobile odin would not even take the file.

    Okay first download this big file [Request] Metro PCS Stock ROM - Page 4 - xda-developers

    Download Odin 3.07 developers.com/attachdl/54d4aa4d98db94eac24e445e4f037e4b/52421a31/1/1/6/8/4/2/1/Odin307.zip

    Extract the odin zip and the big file you have just downloaded somewhere.

    The phone has to be completely off. Next put the phone in download mode via holding the power, volume down and home button together.

    Open odin and follow this picture and select the files according to the sections, for example first click the pit and select CSB_signed_Fusion3_TMO_0325_V2
    Then select the bootloader button and select the BOOTLOADER_M919NUVUAMF2_795095_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    Then press the Pda button and select the PLATFORM_M919NUVUAMF2_795095_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    Then press the CSC button and select the CSC_TMB_M919NTMBAMF2_795095_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    Now make sure the boxes are ticked exactly as shown in this picture. After all this is dones press Start, it will take a little while, but It will be successfully done. Make sure to follow the guide please or it won't work, if it failed follow the guide again and do it again and it will work. I just did it again to verify that it works.

    You are not done, one more step or wifi wont work. Now put the phone in download mode again open up odin, select the PDA button, now select the file that begins with modemxxxblahblah but basically it says modem in front of the file name. Select that and click start. Once that's done your phone should be completely stock.

    Make sure to use the stock cables, also just FYI adding the .tar files to each section might make odin freeze for a few seconds so dont panic just be patient.

    I use the stock cables instead of the s3 cables and so far it's slowly going through the process.

    Successfully converted SGH-M919 T-mobile to SGH-M919N MetroPCS
    I only Flashed PLATFORM and Modem tar files and everything work just fine and no issues for 3 days now and still testing. I will report if I got something.
    Flashed recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.3.2-jfltetmo.tar by odin and then UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.41.zip to root.

    Once you flash a 4.3 rom with 4.3 bootloader you can only flash a 4.3 rom or above. Try downloading the stock 4.3 metro rom and flash it.

    What metro stock firmware are you using? If is 4.2 will be impossible. Needs to be MK5 which is 4.3

    flash the stock 4.3 ShabbyPenguin then if you want to root use [ROOT] Saferoot: Root for VRUEMJ7, MK2, and Android 4.3 - xda-developers then update binaries and disable knox in supersu. and do what you want from there.
