I'm guessing that you made no efs backup? Do your phone's cellular functions or wi-fi work while running a custom rom? What kind of GS3 do you own (i9300 or i9305?).

You cannot go backwards to 4.1 with out a efs v1 back up. Somewhere in 4.3 samsung updated it to v2.
Without a back up you can only use the latest 4.3 and upwards.

Hi there, im on 4.3 stock rom. The thread you provided me with says to flash stock rom with odin. The problem is I do not know which stock rom I should flash. Please tell me which one I should flash and if you can provide me with a link.
