Hello i have a problem to the screen of my S3, it has some orizontal line that can be viewed better on white background color. And also some orizontal shadows marks are there with the screen off.

So i need to return in warranty.

I have used custom kernel in the past with 4.1.2 stock firmware. Now i have reset the counter and flashed the phone eith the last original BRANDED firmware at the momment.

All seems to work fine i see that i have some directory to delete on the internal memory.

So is there a way to check if it is ALL back to stock correctly?

A full data wype will be enough now?

Thanks

First reset your counter in rooted phone.
Then download firmware specific to your country in sammobile site
Then install the firmware thru ODIN
Lastly go in download mode and check counter reset or not & showing official or not.

Repeat above steps if not.

Please search how to reset counter, sammobile, ODIN if you do not know them. You can refer youtube as well.
