    I have never done this before nor do I want to try again. Im trying to trace my steps to find the link I used. The download I was given is Samsung GS3 Qcom Toolkit. I remember something about Snapdragon (not sure why). Please bear with me, Im not as tech savy as yourself, but Im not a complete ***** (yet). Any help you can give me to undo this is more than appreciated! I tried first to root using Android Authority website for the L710 s3 with CWM_SuperUser_v3.0.7.zip file and clockwork mod. Didn't work so I found the second one that caused the issue.
    I found it!!!! The site was theandroidrom.com. I followed their info on rooting. Wish I never got this idea in my head. Should've listened to gramps "If it aint broke, don't fix it!).

    The only way to use triangle away is by rooting your phone. Use the guide I linked before. It should be a piece of cake to root. Then you can use triangle away and go back to stock.

    Sorry to keep buggin. Went to follow your link and got a bit confused. I downloaded the updated file you created with the cwm recovery. Do I still need the team epic one?

    You my friend are the MAN!!!! I am rooted. Painless. One last question. If I wanted to stay rooted, now what? How do I get rid of the pre-installed apps on my phone? Or go back to stock because Im not meant for this android stuff? Be honest, I can take it.

    The easiest and safest way is titanium backup. You can remove apps and your phone can stop working properly. There are apps that need to be there. With titanium backup pro you can freeze your apps 1st. Test your phone for a few days and if everything is working as it should. You can backup the apps and then remove them. I always suggest you back up apps before removing them.

    As for going back to stock. I think you already found that thread.

    So If I follow this guide completely, it will not wipe my data?

    It shouldn't... there have been a few instances where a factory reset was required but very few. The process doesn't wipe data but very rarely the phone will hang at the Samsung screen. To fix this you must go into recovery and perform s factory reset. This is normally caused by a corrupted data file. So if your data is in good shape, you shouldn't have any problems.

    Does the stock file work for both the 16g and 32gb version of sg3. I have the sprint 32gb and don't want to flash a 16gb version and lose the storage space. I don't know if there are different version for your storage size

    It doesn't matter... It will work the same on either.

    Dude you are the man! I rooted my GS3 2 months after getting it, thinking that it would benefit me. Well, the truth is that i didnt know what i was really doing. I didnt read into it as much as i should have, and i thought i was stuck with a rooted device that would get all of its data wiped if I tried to unroot. Now i have jelly bean and i dont think i will be rooting anytime soon. Maybe once i get to know all of this stuff a little better. Ohh and just a quick bit of advice for anyone tring to do this. If odin fails to complete the process; dont give up/try try again. It failed 3 times last night and i woke up this morning and it worked! THanks again man!

    Go into stock recovery and perform a factory reset.

    I don't really know that answer. Let me know. I know you can't root with it but never thought about unrooting.

    I followed the steps in this tread and it worked fine, reset everything back to stock. But now I am getting an error that says I need to install my SIM card. I doesnt really affect anything, but it is really annoying having that icon up in the corner. Any ideas.

    Did you previously edit your msl? Normally that is the cause. If so you should always return your msl back to stock prior to flashing anything to your phone.

    When your phone updates to ma6, it will most likely fix your issues.

    Spunk I have to unroot my phone to send to Samsung because they are going to fix the screen. They told me they were also going to flash my phone. Because the screen is not warrentied do you think I need to use triangle away?

    I have been using CM 10.1 ROM for a few days. I would like to go back to the stock sprint ROM, but remain rooted. Is there a way I can flash a "stock" rooted ROM, or should I put the stock ROM on then re-root?

    Didn't you make a nandroid backup of your stock but rooted ROM. If not, there is a stock rooted ROM in the "Your Way to Update to mb1" thread. It will update you to the newest official stock rooted ROM.
