Unhappy [Q] [HELP] Need Stock Kernel for Tmobile SGH-M919 Android 4.4.2

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 for T-Mobile. I accidentally tried to root using a method that was for an older version of android and now I am getting the "Kernel is not Seandroid Enforcing." I think I just need to flash the stock kernel for 4.4.2 and hopefully that will fix it, but I can't seem to find a link to download the stock kernel. I have been scouring the forums for quite some time now. Can anyone post a link to it or can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this? HELP ME!!!!!!!!!! LOL Thanks in advance for any help. Let me know what additional info you may need.

Yeah......It's not booting. It hangs at the Samsung boot screen and has 2 lines of text in the upper right corner. One says "Kernel is not seandroid Enforcing." the second line says something about warranty. I would tell you specifically what the second line says, but I can't read it. The text is too small. If I flash the stock 4.4. from sammobile, will it fix everything? Sorry, kind of a noob question, but I am just not sure where to start. I was thinking of just flashing the kernel as i really don't want to lose any pics and stuff that I have on the phone and I think that will happen if I flash a new ROM, won't it? Sorry for such noob questions. Thought I had a grasp, but 1 little mistake and now I'm hurtin........don't want to make it worse. Thanks again for the help.

Yeah it will fix it, and you don't lose any pics if you flash a ROM, only data if you do a full wipe.. Now it is recommended to do a full wipe, but for the sake of this situation if you dirty flash a stock ROM, it should boot and have all your contacts, apps, and stuff like that.. if you really need them you can back them up and then wipe, or factory reset, or whatever it is you have planned.. Just make sure you flash a 4.4.2 stock ROM if you do

OK. That worked. Phone is booting and working properly now. Thanks for the help. I am, however, still seeing the "Kernel is not seandroid enforcing" and the 2nd line of text as well. I see this during boot. I understand this shouldn't be an issue, but is there a way to get rid of that message?

What exactly did you do to fix it? If you flashed a ROM then it probably has a custom kernel and that's why it shows the message.. You can flash the stock kernel, or do a restore in Odin to get rid of it, but I wouldn't bother unless you return it for warranty
