Default What is there to do?

We all know there is no bootloader unlock on 4.3 with the VZW GS4 which sucks
So what is there to really do with it.
I'm new to android so any suggestions would be great to just mess around with on the phone.
Thanks All

Root 4.3 and use Xposed app and the modules to customize as you please

Um... wow.
Ok I've briefly heard about this but never dabbled until now.
Again...wow.
Gives you so many of the options once only available in custom Roms in the stock Rom.

A big thank you!

I actually installed it through Xposed in the download section.
That is the best one so far.

You could root it and install xposed. Can do some modding with it installed.
