Default [Q] Removal of Hyperdrive 16 back to stock

Hi everyone. I have a question about removing hyperdrive. I used surge's method of upgrading to 4.4.2 with root. I did this because I knew that Hyperdrive ran on the 4.4.2 base. I installed hyperdrive on the stock slot because a few forums said when installing hyperdrive after using the method I used to upgrade to 4.4.2. My question is that I'm trying to now uninstall hyperdrive and go back to stock. Is there a way to do this while keeping root and not having to use Odin? Because that was a long process. Thank you in advance!

You can use Odin to flash a factory stock 4.4.2 image, then use Towelroot to root that. One long step (Odin Kit Kat), then a very quick root.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Thank you for answering! But I have another question. Am I also able to install Hyperdrive 17 by downloading it, wiping my stock slot, and then installing it?
