    Default Need help finding stock rom please.

    Hey guys i have a GS3 on Verizon. It's currently rooted on LiquidSmooth v2.8. My power button is jacked so i need to return it to "stock" to send it in to get a new one. I cannot seem to find a stock rom that will work anywhere. I tried a link from Sammobile but the one i got wont flash. It just says cannot open file, operation aborted. I tried googling it and searching everywhere but everything is either shut down, looks sketchy, doesn't work, or doesn't tell me which one i need.

    If anyone could point me in the direction of a link that they know for sure works, thatd be dandy.

    Thanks in advance,
    Zach

    Try Samsung updates.com, but here is the catch. A lot of those sites used Mediafile as a server to host their files. That server voluntarily shut down, so now everyone is scrambling for ways to get replacement files up.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    The files on Sammobile are generally good. Try downloading it again. If that gets you the same error, notify the site admin. (You may have to create an account on their forum, I don't remember if they have a contact link.) I think they'd want to know that they have a bad file, and I'd think they'd replace it with a good one.

    (Of course "good" and "current S3 firmware" are polar opposites, but ...)
