Its an Odin flash, so it rewrites everything. You can use it, but if your already rooted, why would you want to reroot?

I rooted under the original UCLEM 4.0.3 so if I can re-root directly it saves the effort to un-root to stock before re-rooting to stock with root. Does that make sense?

Not to me, but that's not abnormal for me.

Since I don't have enough posts to post in the Dev. forums I would like to thank mr Robinson here for the excellent tutorial and necessary files to root my S3 stock. Thanks man you are exceptioal.

FYI: I rooted over a previous CWM root with no issues. Used an old charge/data cable from my previous Palm Pre+ which worked fine. The firmware is now listed as Official not Custom and the flash counter has gone from 3 to 2.

Fwiw, Triangle Away will reset your flash counter, should you ever need to return for warranty.
