    Default How to revert back to Touchwiz 4.2.2?

    Hey guys,

    I recently tried to flash my Sprint Galaxy S4 to the Google Play Edition 4.3 rom, but that did not work out very well. I kept getting the "com.android.phone has unexpectedly stopped working" error that basically made my phone completely useless.

    I was wondering how I can revert my phone back to stock Touchwiz 4.2.2? I can't seem to find any guides online nor any links to download the Touchwiz 4.2.2 ROM.

    Thanks!

    You just need the stock ROM. You can search XDA developers. There may even be a link to stock ROMs. I think rwilco12 has them.

    Hey, Golfdriver97,

    Thanks a lot for replying! I actually managed to get stock 4.2.2 working on my S4, but I can't seem to get cellular data working. Also, I can't seem to receive any text messages, but I can send them.

    Thanks again!

    Hey, Golfdriver97,

    Thanks for you reply once again, but I can't seem to find "update" in my settings. I also tried to update my PRL by calling Sprint (##873283#), but the number was out of service.

    Thanks again!

    Settings, and scroll all the way down. Update device maybe?

    Try ##72786# maybe? Your phone will reboot twice during that process.

    I found "Update device", but still no option for updating the PRL. Only asking me to update to 4.3, which apparently did not work. I'll probably reflash 4.2.2 when I get hom.e

    @jaleesag88

    I called that number and apparently it was a Verizon Wireless number (it was also out of service). Thanks though!

    Reflashing is probably a good idea. Something may have hiccupped during the process.
