    Can anyone point me in the right direction of flashing Stock back on my GS4? (Touchwiz) I currently am running KangaBean (A Google Edition 4.3 ROM) And I want to go back to the way my phone came while keeping root. I have already tried flashing my ATT variant of it from Galaxys4root.com but when installing in CWM it gives me Installation Aborted.

    Any help offered, is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    You should've made a nandroid backup before installing the custom ROM. That way you can always go back in case anything goes wrong. It still lets you keep root

    Hmm, I guess I should have done a bit more research huh? I flashed a new ROM within a week or so of getting the phone. So I obviously wasn't very precautious. My fault. Other than that, is there a way to go back?

    I'm not sure how the AT&T version works. Have you tried using TWRP to flash it?
    Also, what firmware are you on? Settings > About Device. It should end in MF3 if it's the latest one

    I'm luckily still on MDL. I never updated. And no, I haven't tried using TWRP. I don't know how to go about that.

    Just did a quick search, going back to stock will always break root
    You'd have to flash stock firmware and then re-root

    TWRP is pretty much like CWM but it's easier to make the nandroid backups I mentioned.
    I know you can root the MF3 now but not sure about custom recoveries (TWRP, CWM)

    Honestly I'm fine with losing root for now. As long as I can reroot it isn't a big deal. I'd just like stock back.

    You said you tried flashing something from galaxys4root. What was it? Stock firmware?

    Yes it was a stock firmware specifically for AT&T but it will not flash.

    MDL I believe.
    You can see here, it doesn't clarify and I don't know where else to find a proper one. Galaxy S4 Stock Firmware | GalaxyS4Root.com

    Yeah, it says MDL is the latest but I'm pretty sure it's MF3.
    You can also get the firmware here: http://samfirmware.com/

    Do you know anywhere else I can get a copy of it? I'm not being lazy. Trust me, I've spent a lot of time researching this issue.

    You need to search for your model. The search box is near the top, just put SGH- and whatever the AT&T variant is

    Yeah, haha I did that. There are no US carriers available on there. All other countries for my i9505.
