So I'm getting a warranty exchange and need to get back to stock. Since I don't have access to a laptop or anything I'd figured I'd flash one of the stock unrooted roms. The only thing is will be to get back the stock recovery. My question is if I flash an ics stock rom, then to the update from the phone to jb, will that install the stock recovery? I think i read that it does but I just want to double check. Thanks

I think you'll just lose root and still have the custom recovery but in not 100% sure.

Also don't forget to use the triangle away app to reset the flash count.

You need access to computer and odin to flash stock.tar. reflash stock backup you still have custom recovery. Also double check how many counter you have.

If you try flashing stock without Odin not only will you still have a custom recovery, you will still have a flash count. The only way to accomplish what you need is via PC and Odin.

Damn I don't have a laptop. I remember having a zip file for my s2 that was an unrooted stock rom and installed the stock recovery but I haven't seen anything like that for the s3

I'm afraid not. The thing is, even if there was it would be pointless because booting to a custom recovery to flash the stock zip would trigger the flash counter.

What about Mobile Odin? Not sure if it trips the counter or not though.
