You can install CF-Auto-Root and it will install a stock recovery. I don't think there is any difference in stock recoveries.

If you want to pay for mobile odin, you can use it to just flash the stock recovery. You would have to download the whole firmware and put it on your sd card. Mobile Odin separates it all so you could just flash the recovery that way. The problem is there is no stock firmware for the Metro S4 that I know of.

I think you'll get a message that the phone has been modified if you try OTA. If you do, you could Odin back to the stock firmware or wait for the update to get put on sammobile and install it with odin.

Yeah I don't understand it either. The other carriers released it weeks ago. Maybe they are just waiting on the 4.3 update.

You should try chainfire's Google+ page or the mobile odin thread at xda and mention it. He's pretty good about updating things. I don't understand why it wouldn't work. Its just like the Tmobile phone isn't it?

That's a possibility also from what I read it mentions wifi calling as being in the way of this update I'm sure we will get it maybe tmobile has been busy with the lte rollout and metropcs deal who knows I want the update since it will also gives us more options on the camera and smoother scrolling
