Default Kit Kat Rom that lets me unroot

I've been running Jans ported GPE rom on my work I9505.

I chose it as it is so close to stock I could remove root after install to use company email.

However it could be a little more stable. RR's and FC's are taking their toll.

I tried using ART and that bricked the phone so I reinstalled fresh.

Just now I thought I was going through another RR when I was in a hurry to open a page in Chrome and it will no longer boot, just the coloured circles over and over.

Can someone recommend another Rom that's very stock KK that would be ok to run with the phone not rooted?

I am guessing that the more custom Roms would need root access due to the higher functions they support.

These are the forums for the SGH-T959V, a phone that had its last OEM ROM from Gingerbread. You probably want a different section of XDA.

Posted from whatever phone booted today
Nexus 5, custom OmniROM builds (don't panic, it means I can brick my SGS4G without fear)
Samsung Galaxy S 4G -- Development version of OmniROM
Fromerly: Development version of Team Acid's CM9 source, Hefe Kernel of Darkness, KG4 modem.
Working on: Cleaning up the build tree for OmniROM and Samsung kernel sources

WiFi Performance, GB vs. ICS, and how to measure it yourself.

FreeBSD, Ubuntu, MacOS X, OpenWRT
Motorola Micro-TAC ("Micro" ) Nokia 2160, 8260, 6681, E70, N900, then had to move on

Ha ha, you're right. I read it as Galaxy S4 4G. I will try again.
