A little more exact: get the most recent stock rom which corresponds to my device (AUT -> Switzerland), flash it with Windows ODIN and in the process reformat and completely wipe clean the device. The outcome will be a completely blank device looking as if it is taken out the box the first time. Like a boss

As can be deducted from the part just above: unaltered, unchanged, not tempered with original Samsung originating firmware making your device truely "original". The car comparison is always lame, but fits, once more
Whats the difference between a tuned and a stock car. The same as it is between a custom flashed and stock phone. And yes, tampering with the device is not allowed, hence you lose warranty (except you can go back to stock before handing it in in case of a warranty claim).
