    I rooted my S3 awhile back and deleted a bunch of factory apps. I stupidly did a factory reset, and now a bunch of apps are missing. I don't have a stock keyboard (only Google voice typing), internet, and many other things. I have an otg cable so I connected my keyboard to it so I can at least type. It doesn't wanna connect to any Google services, either.

    Is the phone done for good? I kinda wanted to have a nice secondary device, but I screwed up.

    Hi...

    All is not lost, I think. Goto Sammobile.com

    Download your firmware for you specific Model Number. Use Odin to flash it back to stock. This should work. Goto Youtube, and watch tutorials on flashing with Odin, you might even find your specific phone in the searches.

    hope this helps!

    Does it need to be rooted in order to flash the software?
