    We have no idea which device you have.
    Please can you post the model number.

    Or install this app:

    If it is failing on Odin, then there can be a number of reasons.
    1. Your USB is not of original quality.
    2. You need to connect directly to your USB port on the PC and not through a USB hub.
    3. Try another USB port.
    4. Make sure Kies is not running.

    If none of these, and Odin starts the flash, then where does it stop?

    Could be your phone is locked to a network.
    If it is you must unlock before installing another stock firmware.

    For some reason I missed that you are trying to downgrade from 4.3.

    This is not possible as the file containing your phone IMEi number has changed the way it saves the information.
    (it is known as an EFS2 folder)
    This is why Odin fails as it cannot write the old EFS Data into the new folder.

    You are stuck with 4.3.
