Default Factory Reset 4.3

I changed my mind. How would I hard reset on my android galaxy s4?

I updated my phone to 4.3 while ago, has lot of issues. So I did the custom rom thing/root and such.
How would I factory reset my phone? Odin doesn't seem to work for me. I can't find reliable 4.3 stock firmware on the internet.

Thanks

What do you mean by factory reset?

It sounds like you want to revert it back to the original state it was in when you bought, which if you've done an update to 4.3 is not a simple factory reset.

Fro stock ROMs you want to look on sammobile.com
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

The most reliable stock Odin flash Official M919 4.2.2 Galaxy S4 firmware
can be found and downloaded from http://SamMobile.com

You will need to create an account on sammobile to be able to download.
Takes only a minute and it's FREE !!!

Odin works for everyone, if it's not working for you it's due to user error.
You can even download Mobile Odin from the playstore and use that,

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

Teco is a slow download site...

Other than that, how would i restore it? Like a new phone.

I got it to restore! I use Kies instead. Now, how do I reset the Knox Warranty void?

Thanks

You cannot reset the KNOX (at least not yet).

Perhaps at a future date the devs will find a way to do it.

Good luck!

Also, is it possible to root on 4.3?

EDIT:
Okay, I rooted it and installed Custom Recovery. Now, how do I remove the, "Kernel is not seandroid enforcing. Set Warranty Bit: kernel"

Thanks.

Simply download and flash Ktoonz kernel in recovery.

Here is the direct download link: http://ktoonsez.jonathanjsimon.com/s...11.14.2013.zip

Thanks for clicking on the "THANKS" button... LOL
