Default Stock Firmware

Hello everyone! I've searched all over the place and I could not find an answer, so I came here hoping to find one.

So, my problem is: I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4. My friend talked me into rooting it, so I did. I installed Cyanogenmod along with it to get the stock android os. Well, I'm really regretting it. Could anyone tell me how to reinstall my Sprint Galaxy S4 stock firmware, as well as unroot, AND reset the binary counter? Thank you in advance!

Backup your data/apps and get anything off the internal memory you want to save. Do a factory reset (settings > account > backup and reset > Factory Data Reset). See if that resets your binary. If not, try another reset. If your Knox bit is set to 0x1, which it likely will be since you're rooted on 4.3+, there is nothing you can do to reset that.

Then Odin on a stock ROM. I'd recommend 4.3/MJA. Get the stock ROM here:
