Exclamation GALAXY S4 *Wanting* Stock ROM+Recovery! [Help!]

I'll start off with the phone details

Galaxy S4 GT-i9505
Provider: Optus (Australia)
Baseband:I9505XXUEMK9

I'm looking for the stock S4 recovery and ROM (JellyBean 4.3) and I cannot find them anywhere!
I recently rooted my S4, flashed CWM onto it and installed the S4 Google Edition Anrdroid 4.4.2 ROM.

I don't care if the method wipes all data, wipes root access etc, I just want stock everything so I can send my phone away under warranty.
So please, if you know a method, the location of the stock files or anything please chuck it my way.

Also if you know of any good S4 compatible 4.4.2 KitKat ROMs (Or really, really, good 4.3 ROMS) I wouldnt mind them either
Much, much, much appreciated
Sorry if this was the wrong section to post this in, but I need help and I have no idea where else this would go.

Thank you! That link helps heaps for the ROMs but I'm still looking for a stock recovery for my S4. [Edit: Does that unroot/ flash to stock firmware link include the stock recovery?]

Flashing the stock rom with Odin will unroot and install the stock recovery as well, it's included, so no need to find recovery and flash it separately.

Try this(although I'm unsure if it will flash correctly because it's 4.2.2 version) or look for "factory Firmware"
