    Samsung S3/S4 - roll back to android 4.3

    Hi there
    I unfortunately let my phones upgrade to the latest version of Android -- BIG MISTAKE - some apps don't work properly - and when you try and re-install you get message "App is incompatible with your device".

    Any "Phone Gurus" here who can link me to a site where I could roll back to the previous release -- Stock kernel would do --I don't need to have the phones "Rooted".

    Basically I need either VODAFONE UK or PROXIMUS (BELGACOM) BE kernels.

    Two phones -- Samsung S4 and Samsung S3 (European not US models)

    Moral --unlike computers WAIT before updating Android - don't let the phone do it automatically.
