My phone has a very strange problem and I am suspecting a dodgy emmc chip. As some will know I had to replace the front of my SGS3 after the dog tasted it . Since then I have lost my IMEI and have baseband unknown....TWICE I have managed to get it working again only for it to twice loose it again...ie got it working at 3am went to bed woke up to it broke again.

So I have done an IMEI / seriel check and It appears I have a factory warranty until dec 2014 So I am hoping to send the phone back to samsung to get it fixed there, however over the last few days I have flashed almost every stock rom I could find from 4.0.4 to 4.3 and a few custom roms in between as well as a couple of kernels, and rooted and rerooted over and over again. So I need to know the best way to basically turn this phone in to a standard SGS 3 with no signs of flashing.

First: get into recovery and select wipe data and cache...
Second: then install the stock rom but you need to have your battery over 80%
Third: boot into recovery mode and look at how much custom binary you have, if you have 1 or 2,3,4... you need to delete it with triangle away BUT DELETE THIS BEFORE YOU UNROOT YOUR PHONE USING FIRST STEP

AND I'M NOT RESPONSiBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU DEAL TO YOUR PHONE... DO AT YOUR OWN RISK
