Default Make Verizon S4 a Google Edition

My previous phone was the Verizon variant of the Galaxy Nexus. I loved it, except for the battery life. I bought the Verizon Galaxy S4 and would love to install the pure stock Android. I found this tutorial, but given that it's several months old, I wondered if there were any updates, and I can't seem to find anything since then anywhere on the internet, including XDA. Here is a link to the tutorial below. Can anyone help me out?

If you have MDK bootloader version you can use loki exploit, install custom recovery and flash most any AOSP rom. If not, then you need to investigate Safestrap & you can flash only TW based roms appropriate to the build you are on. Read up carefully before trying anything.
