    When rooting or modifying your Android Smartphone it is always a good idea to keep a stock image handy incase for any reason you encounter a soft brick or just incase you need to return to stock firmware for warranty reasons or to return or sell the device. One bad thing about flashing a stock image is that it will often completely wipe your phone removing all saved data and apps. The developer responsible for the root method on the Verizon version of the Galaxy S4 has now also modified the Stock image so that it will flash without factory wiping your device. You can follow his complete guide for the factory restore at the link below.
