I hope someone can help with a questionI have.

I need to flash back to stock rom and do a factory reset on my AT&T SGIII - this I know how to do . However, what I don't know is if the links I've found for tar files for a stock restore (like the one posted here)are for the ice cream sandwich version that launched with the phone, or the newer jelly bean version.

If it is the older version, once I'm done restoring it back to stock and factory settings, will I get an option to update to jelly bean thru AT&T?
Or do I need to find a stock AT&T jelly bean file to flash? If so, where do I find that?

any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Be carefull going back. If on 4.3 bootloader.it is warned not to go back.

Also be more descriptive.

What are you trying to leave from

Where did you find that link.

Just looking at the download name there is no way to tell what it is as far as version.

If back to stock and did not trip the counter then OTA will be available.

The file in the link was uploaded on 07-04-2012, so it has to be for Ice Cream Sandwich.

What bootloader are you on? This is crucial because it will determine if you can use ODIN to flash.

Currently, I have the Sonic Free GS3_R7.1.1 Resurrection rom, with a 3.0.51-KT74-gd1f1083 ktoonsez Kernel, all running on 4.1.1 version of android.

also my modem is I747UCDLK3.


I didn't know if I needed to get the same version of a stock rom to flash back to or if it mattered. Ideally, I still want to be able to get the latest android version released by AT&T. I don't necessarily want to flash back to the version that launched with the SG3. Unless, after doing so I could update the phone thru AT&T (OTA or other method) to the most current released version.


Thanks
