Hello. I have a rooted GS3 which I want to update. I was on CM11 but was getting bad battery life so I went back to stock via a Nandroid restore. I then installed the stock recovery again. Now when I try to do the OTA update, I get the following message



Is there any way to make this work? I am on 4.1.2 (MB1?) and would love to get to the latest stock version. Thanks

you could have left custom recovery on it, and flashed THIS from CNexus. Its stock 4.3, no KNOX, and you get to keep root access.

Thanks for the reply. Is that stock touchwiz or stock jellybean? Also what's the latest version which sprint has pushed out for the gs3?

Stock jellybean with touchwiz launcher. Touchwiz is the stock launcher. This one is the latest update, in zip format, but with KNOX removed.

sent from my GS3

One thing which stock Touchwiz has that I can update my prl etc from the rom, whereas I wasn't able to do that in Cyanogenmod. Do you know if this stock rom allows it? Thanks
