I am extremely sorry for the late reply. The error message you are getting is because you have rooted with wrong model number. The method is for Galaxy ALPHA models only. To resolve the issue please reinstall your phone with the stock ROM. You can download the firmware from sammobile.com.

Answer few of my questions.
1. Is your device bearing the same model numbers?
2. Did you got pass message from Odin?
3. Did you installed Samsung USB drivers?
4. Did you enabled "USB debugging"?
5. Is your phone completely dead, or are you able to see the device model number on screen?
