    Is there any way I can change my galaxy S4 from having touchwiz to being just plain old play edition. I also want to be able to unroot my phone afterwards. Is this has been answered before I apologise and please point me to the right place

    You'll need to root the device and install a GPe ROM. This page has a reference to root devices, including the gs4: http://Rooting your Android http://w...ntral.com/root

    For the ROM, you may need to check XDA. With restoring to stock, make sure you have the factory firmware kept as a backup to restore later through Odin.

    Careful too; last I knew only GSM phones could be converted to Play editions. However, there are custom ROMs available for the S4 based on AOSP which will look and act like GPe.
