Default How to convert a "normal" S4 to a "Google Edition" S4...

Is there an easy way to convert my standard off-the-shelf UK Samsung S4 to a Google Edition??

I've read so much about different ROMs where some things work and some doesn't. also half the time I'm unsure if they will work on UK networks?

Also will the ROM update OTA or will I need to reflash every time there's a new version of Android?

Ultimately I just want to convert my S4 to a Google Edition with no bells and whistles or complications... Any help would be very much appreciated.

Eventually there will hopefully be this "switch" project completed for the S4, which allows you to reboot and switch back and forth to either the standard carrier's Android or the GE Android, as can now be done with the HTC One.

For other answers it would probably help to disclose your carrier.
