Hey all,
I have my Galaxy s4 (wich I LOVE) since a year now.
I have the vanilla android ROM running on my s4.
Since I really love this rom more tham TW; I'm wondering if it would be possible to download the stock rom (instead of a custom ROM) from the Google Play edition on my s4. (Maybe with odin or something?) since it has exactlly the same hardware.
So, do you think it is possible? And if it is; How?

Thanks in advance;
David.

Yes u can back your stock again. It's a odin method when u will do this thing u lost all your root and recovery data. (Make sure install your device firmware.)go to sammobile for download u r firmware.
follow this instruction for reflash.
1.Extract (unzip) the firmware file
Download Odin v3.09
2.Extract Odin zip-file
Open Odin v3.09
3.Reboot phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)
4.Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
5.Add the firmware file to AP / PDA
6.Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
7.Click the start button, sit back and wait a few minutes
8.After this wipe and clear all user data.
