    Default Re: UnRoot and Return to stock

    I had a rooted S3 on 4.2.1 which was having all sorts of issues including not being able to update. I just used this method to flash it back to the stock, and now it hardly works at all. It won't connect to Kies, I gives me multiple popups of whats not working constantly and I can't navigate it.

    Default Re: UnRoot and Return to stock

    Have a serious issue. I can get into download mode but I cant get into the phone to run triangle away and when go into download mode I see it says custom 1. i need to reset it to send back to sprint.
    The reason i cant get into the phone is because it boots up normal and then powers downs because it claims it has 0% on battery even though it is fully charged. i tried a different battery to no avail.
    I t runs fine in recovery mode or download mode on the battery.
    Can i flash an older rom for ex; if i have 4.2 can i flash 4.04?
    Also it wont mount the sd card so odin is the only thing i can do.

    Is your S3 a Sprint phone? I've run this procedure multiple times, and had no issues. If you haven't already, do a factory reset in recovery. If that doesn't work, I'd redownload the ROM file, in case the download was corrupted, and then reinstall it through Odin.

    Yes, you can flash an older ROM as long as you don't try to go from 4.3 to an earlier version. The ROM tar file linked in this thread is actually an ICS ROM, so it will take you to an older version. That won't solve your flash counter problem, though. If you flash a ROM in Odin with the flash counter set at 1, it will stay at 1.

    Is your phone still under Samsung's warranty? I ask because many people report that Sprint doesn't seem to care if your phone has been rooted. Samsung, OTOH, definitely does.

    This seems to happen every now and then. Power down, then boot into recovery and factory reset. That should clear it up for you. If not, you might have gotten a bad download. Try downloading the file in this post: [UPDATED 12/30/2012][Sprint Only]UnRoot and Return to stock and try Odin again, with this new file.

    The OP of this thread mentions that you shouldn't use this unrooting method from 4.3. But I didn't get the official 4.3 update. I flashed 4.3 with the Knox removing files etc. So can I use this unrooting method before selling my phone? If not how do I go back to stock? Thanx!

    If you didn't accept the OTA, and don't have Knox installed, this should work fine. It will put you back to a 4.0x version ROM. You'll then get two OTAs that upgrade you to 4.2.1. A third OTA request will be fore 4.3.

    Don't you need a PIT file too? My gs3 is hardbricked and no buttons work however a jig takes it into download mode... i know this is one file that i need but dont i need a PIT too?

    If you install the factory ROM, I believe that will give you the factory partitioning. I've not tried to restore a bricked phone with this, but have used it to unroot my phone, and it worked fine without a PIT file.

    Try doing a factory reset. That should clear it up.

    Default Re: UnRoot and Return to stock

    Is there a way yet to unroot your phone after doing the update? Ever since updating it gives me random notes about superuser detection or access and seems laggy. Nothing huge, but I'd really like to take the phone back to normal and start over.
