"It won't install"?
You have to push the SecLauncher3.apk to /system/priv-app, e.g.with root explorer.

Samsung Galaxy S4 √ GT - i9505

...and you also set the right permissions (rw-r--r--)?

If you install S5 launcher by apk you can uninstall simply by settings.If you replace file in System folder put the original touchwiz in it.

People that don't know what they are doing should not mess with there's phones, then open countless threads on here asking for others to put right their mistakes.
