Hello! I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 with Android 4.1.2 (no SD Card). I rooted it about a year ago and "unrooted" it today. However, I have a problem when I try to update the software. It says "Your device has been modified. Software updates are not available." I have tried some tricks I such as factory reset, "Wipe cache partition" but they didn't worked.

Is there any way to revert it back to normal?

Sorry for my english. Thank you!

Use Triangle away and read the tutorial on how to revert to factory. If you have a custom recovery installed or a rooted phone, system status is modified, so no oficial OTA or kies upgrade.

You can always use odin to flash latest firmware and forget about unrooting and stuff like that.

Thank you both!

Because of you I was finally able to upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.3.
