Default [Q] How to restore back to stock 4.3?

Ok so back in October i used root de la vega to get root access. Everything is going well until i accepted the OTA update mid november, which broke my root access. Now that was an epic buzzkill for me! But now on bootup i still get the custom boot logo even though root is gone. Now my phone has glitches every now and then, such as the hardware buttons stop working until i do a hard reset, my lockscreen dissapears and takes me straight to the homepage, and the phone feels a bit slower ever since. Is there a possible way to re root or atleast get stock firmware back on my sm-900a? I was wondering what would happen if i redid the entire root de la vega process with odin and everything, would it put me back to root and delete the OTA update? Or should i put up with it until KitKat comes out? Thanks guys!

You could use "kingo" to root your firmware MJ5....I used it and on MJ5 I'm not having any issues at all..And just use "wanan" app to get rid of the padlock symbol for now...
Until we have an actual way to odin a MJ5 firmware I believe were kinda stuck at this point...But there is a "thread" that "evilpotatoman" made with some news about a restore of some kind...Im not familiar with it, or know if this helps but here's the link.

Good song from thier first album "Herzeleid" song called "Du riechst so gut"

Good Albums:
"Herzeleid"
"Sonne"
"Sehnsucht"

I have every album...Sometimes you have to just sit back and listen to the whole cd and listen to each song a couple times, I've found new favorite songs that way in the past when skipping over them. Lol
