Hi all, i flashed the galaxy s4 KitKat ROM from jamal (THIS IS THE ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...hp?t=2544474);
and now i want to return to the stock rom of the galaxy S4 but i dont know how to do.I tried to flash a stock rom with Odin but it didnt work and the Galaxy s4 at the start says "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in kies and try again".So i flash a stock recovery and now it works fine but i want to go back to the stock rom.Can someone make a guide or post a guide on how to do that??

I have a similar question,

I have an S4 with OmegaRom, Knox has been tripped and I want to update and wipe clean to sell.

Do I need to flash the same rom that the Omega one was based upon? (I.E XXUFNC9) Or will any stock 4.4.2 rom work? As I'd like the use the latest BTU one, which is only XXUFNB8

Once I've flashed stock, I undersrtand the KNOX apps won't work again, but will the device still be updatable through OTA and KIES?

Thanks!

1. You can't sell it "CLEAN" coz u tripped KNOX. This can't be reset.
2. You can flash the Stock Rom u want, always being android 4.4.2. I have KNOX: 0x1 and i use latest XXUFNB8 without any problem
3. Yes.
