Hi, welcome to Grand community

Samsung is a little different from HTC in terms of reverting back to warranty status
For a while now Samsung implemented a BIN status in it's phone which tracks if an how many times your phone has had it's download mode used to flash firmwares or recoveries. This is the primary means of checking for your warranty.
When you are unrooting, there are specific steps you will have to follow to make 100% certain that there is no trace of your phone ever being rooted.
Please check this post for step-by-step process : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=31
App required, Triangle Away : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.triangleaway
Stock Firmwares can be found here : http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9082

You can download it for free from the dev's original thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1494114
The play store payment is a way of thanking him for this app, but the dev has been generous enough to provide a full version for free.

A detailed step by step explanation for Odin can be found here : http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...t-recover.html
It's a guide for flashing firmware in S3 but it's same process.
