The process I used with my I9100M with LD3. Don't see why others couldn't use the same process. I haven't found it documented anywhere so my apologies if this is a duplicate.

My starting point
Bell I9100M upgraded to ICS LD3 official release through Kies.
I went through the CF-Root process and used LP7 (the second link in the list but I don't think it matters). You end up with a rooted kernel with CWM and the ugly yellow triangle.
CF-Root 5: Upgrade Firmware feature
Using this feature I was able to get my LD3 firmware back with root and no triangle. I created a folder on my external_sd called "firmware" and put the stock Bell LD3 firmware from Samsung Updates in there.
I then opened CWM and selected Flash Stock Firmware and selected the stock firmware. I continued through the prompts about the bootloader and then selected the pre-root option.
After boot I had LD3 rooted and working perfectly with no triangle. I have no idea whether it actually reset the flash counter but I'm okay with this solution for now.
Also, because I went back to the stock kernel CWM has lost snazy features like Flash Stock Firmware but I'm alright with that for now too.
Then you may have to flash the whole ROM again.
If the issue still is present, you should do a factory reset after flashing.
Backup everything important before doing this.
Good luck !
I already did a factory reset, even with the option of deleting internal memory, but does not work...
Actually I have two issues:
1. After some undetermined time (i think It is more related to going to deep sleep state) i see the sd card but I cannot install any application from there, but it is ok from the market.
2. In this state, if I connect to a PC with a USB cable I do not see any memory, just blank
The battery style in stock Android looks pretty dull. It doesn’t … more
