    I'm not getting that screen. I'm getting the one with the smaller letters. The only factory reset option is the wipe.

    I'm trying to unroot. But I tried to root to see if it would allow my to unroot. When I first did the unroot, my battery fell out when I was disconnecting the cable from my laptop so I was thinking that may have been what caused the Samsung screen to freeze.

    When it freezes on samsung, boot into recovery. It should look like this



    Choose wipe data/factory reset restart your phone and it will boot. it might take longer the 1st time so be patient.

    Currently rooted using stock ICS ROM with CWM. I'm not able to install OTA updates. Can I flash the JB version you linked to go straight to that or do I have to flash the ICS stock again and then do the OTA update?

    If you are Rooted and have custom recovery this is for you. If you don't want to lose data or apps just skip the wipe data part and it will be just like getting an update except when you're done you will still have root and cwm. Remember to flash the firmware/modem first.

    This is the Full Stock LJ7 Pre-Rooted in a zip file. You would flash these files like you would any other ROM. The Rom and firmware (radio) are 2 separate zips.
    Please thank freeza in his xda rthread.

    1. Download files and put them on you external or internal sdcard.
    2. Wipe cache, wipe dalvik, factory Reset
    3. Flash Firmware
    4. Flash ROM
    5. Reboot

    Had a quick question, I was rooted then someone **cough wife cough** was playing around on my phone and choose to accept the ota update which of course locked the bootloader and unrooted the phone. How awesome I know, but my question is if I use this to bring back everything to the stock firmware that came with my phone will it bring back the original bootloader again or am i sol until this one gets cracked. I tried rerooting the phone through odin but no luck

    1. It's very unusual for the OTAs to work on these phones when they are rooted.
    2. What versions are you on now.
    3. What is your phone model?

    Yes this will flag the stock firmware and recovery back to factory. There are 2 firmwares in the op. Use the jellybean tar so you won't have to do all the updates.

    Which superuser are you flashing? It should be "team_epic_root_from_recovery".

    I have an idea. After flashing team epic root from recovery in cwm, do not try to update the binaries. Instead go to the playstore and install chainfires SuperSU. Then go to system apps and delete superuser.

    So this is stock JB pre-rooted? Does it matter what version I'm coming from to flash this? I have a custom deodex JB ROM, and I want to go to stock odex JB. Do I just flash the firmware then the odex zip file, or will I have to use the unrooting method on page one of this thread?

    If you are rooted with custom recovery the files you are quoting are pre rooted stock JB (for sprint only) and can be flashed from any version. Just be sure you flash the LJ7 firmware first. It has caused issues in very few phones if flashed after the rom. If your phone already has LJ7 radio then flashing the firmware it is not needed.

    That's it. I'm done with ROMs. CM10 constantly losing connection and the community/devs not acknowledging the 3g to 4g handoff connection issues was teh last straw. Thanks for the guide.

    What now? Phone is still in download mode. I'm not going to disconnect it or turn it off; I fear I may brick it. Halp

    EDIT: Eff it. Unplugged, turned off phone by holding power button, restarted the entire process over and everything worked out fine. LIKE A BOSS.

    You should have asked me for that a long time ago I could have made one for you.
    If you would like I can show you how to modify the tar files.
