    Yo skunkape let me know if u need a regular zip. Thought the self-extractors would be easier. And the wiping data thing was 50/50 and happened on both sextapes tar and mine. Just to throw it out. 2/3 of my links still work fyi

    Thanks... Tonight I will be updating this return to stock with the full JellyBean Tar. Which will become the new return to stock.
    Sweet. Would love to be able to return my co-workers' phones to stock without having to reset them.

    hey, thanks for the thread,I did not update when I bought the phone and rooted as soon as I took it out forget what firmware I was on. Just used your steps and updated all the way to li3. Worked great altough touch wiz did not work until i updated to 8 so if that happens to anyone else dont be alarmed it will fix itself. I always like to download the updates ota im wierd like that so this worked great. I cant wait to dowload the new jelly bean and re root thanks? I havnt flashed a rom with this phone i fell the stock rom is good for me!

    After the restoring it back to the stock rom and updating to jelly bean OTA I'm having problems rooting again. The CWM recovery doesn't stick when I flash it anymore. I tried to not auto-reboot and it stays for that one time only, but when I click on superuser I don't have any permissions and root checker says I'm not rooted. Is there another way to root now with the new update?

    Usually a factory reset would fix that.

    I personally think it's a load of bull but you can try going to app manager and clearing data in Google Framework. It has NEVER worked for me on any update but some swear by it. Or you can update using the method in post #2 "Your Way To Update."

    You are correct complete bull. After clearing data, and checking for update it showed last update check was 12/31/69 lol, thinking of going to post #2, some are saying that the OTA is different from leaked versions. not sure about that. Is post #2 an exact Image of the OTA??.. Again Thanks Skunk.

    PLEASE HELP. lol. I started and completed Odin, but after 20 minutes the phone would not get passed the SAMSUNG logo. Then I went back to download mode and to try Odin again, and my PDA file comes up differently than the picture. Mine comes up as "C:\Users\BTM\Desktop\Root GS3\KIES_HOME_L710VPALEN_L710SPRALEN_618049_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.md5" while yours comes up as something else. What do i do?

    You are fine. Boot into recovery volume UP instead of down. Press Volume up, home and power simultaneously. As soon as the word Samsung appears release all 3 buttons. In 10-20 seconds your phone will go into stock recovery. Choose factory reset. When it completes restart your phone. Give it a few minutes and it should start.

    1 question though. Why are you going back to LEN version when you can go straight to LJ7 with the same procedure?

    I'm just trying to go back completely stock from CM10 M2. I don't really know much about rooting, i just do it and it always works out. lol. I just used odin to reflash CWM recovery, then i reinstalled cm10 m2 again. im back to receiving my ever so important calls and texts. Was afraid i created my first brick. So, what method should i do to go back completely stock?

    Also, i never created a backup. idk if this affects anything.

    Let me get back home from work. I will get you back to stock jellybean. Do you want stock rooted or stock unrooted?

    Stock Unrooted please. Will this permit me to receive OTA updates in the future?

    EDIT: I think i did the first method correctly. i used CWM to flash the LJ7 Jellybean counter reset, and everything seems normal. I never had the JB update, but everything seems stock. Thank you though

    Ok. This will remove your root, remove CWM and install stock LJ7 JellyBean and Stock recovery on your phone. It will bring your phone to the exact state your phone would be in if you walked out of a Sprint Store today with a brand new phone. After flashing this you should not have any problems when the next ota is released

    1. You will open odin,
    2. check the pda block.
    3. click in the pda block and navigate to where you put the below file.
    4.You will make sure the Auto Reboot and Reset timer both are selected
    5. Put you phone into download mode (Press volume DOWN, power and home buttons simultaneously) When you see the warning release all of the buttons and press volume up.
    6. plug your phone into your computer using your USB cable
    Make sure you see COM and any number in the ID COM block. This tells you that your drivers are loaded and your phone is recognized.
    7. Press the start button. This is a Large file and can take anywhere from 8-20 minutes depending on the speed of your computer.

    When complete your phone will restart providing you left it Auto Reboot checked. When it starts to reboot it is safe to unplug from the computer. If it takes more than 5 minutes to boot. Pull the battery out and re install it. Go into stock recovery (Press volume UP, power and home buttons simultaneously and release all 3 as soon as you see the word Samsung on your screen. Once in stock recovery and choose factory reset. reboot the phone. Again it may take a few minutes on the 1st boot.

    Stock Unrooted LJ7 JellyBean tar.

    Thankyou for the guide Skunkape60, I was able to revert my phone back to complete stock by following your guide.
    Also, for users who have modded their msl, it is important that you change settings in msl back to stock before reverting or else you will experience a "no sim card" error.
    Thankfully Skunkape and I were able to find that if you accept all of the OTA updates, your cdma "sim card" will eventually be re-identified and you can configure the msl settings correctly.
    THANKYOU SKUNKAPE!

    It could take a little while the first time. If it doesn't boot go into recovery and do a factory reset and restart.

    Which method are you using?
