    Hi I got an S4 passed onto moi.
    Is there a way I can safely restore it to factory settings (just as officially from Samsung)?
    I ask this because when I try to update software, this error shows "Your device has been modified. Software updates are not available".
    I tried to find a quick fix, but very confused.
    I read some stuff on here like Odin, Kies etc; and 'rooting'(is that the Android version of jailbreaking?)
    I have no SD card mounted and my Device Status says Custom.
    I already did Factory data reset via Settings

    I would like a condensed version of steps on how I can restore my S4 to mint condition safely.
    I don't know which other info you folks might need so...Please assist!

    The device has presumably already been rooted and had a custom ROM installed. Check this guide from Golfdriver97:

    ...And this one from UJ95x:
