I had made a back up before the first time I flashed a rom. I had successfully used it to restore, but one time it just took forever to restore and then it wouldn't boot. TWRP then wanted a password, because the rom hadn't booted, the only solution I found was to format data, which killed my back up. Is there a flashable stock rom I can use to return my phone to factory settings. I don't care if it is ICS or JB, but I need it to not be custom. My USB is messed up and I am almost out of warranty. Need to take phone for service tomorrow, and don't want them to see a custom rom running. I've done this before with no prob, even though tech you void your warranty, in practice, they don't much check beyond cursory look. Please help if you can.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Is there a way of making the recovery original (or at least appear that way) and then later go back to the way it was, where I could flash, without having to repeat the whole process. If they can't or won't fix my USB, I won't be able to connect a usb cable which, if I remember, I had to do to root my phone. Not sure if I asked the question the right way, but I just want to make sure I don't get stuck in 4.1 if they deny my claim. I am right at the end of my 1 yr warranty and wouldn't want to pay for a repair. No sure I am asking the right way? Thanks again for the help.

I wouldn't know of a way to do that, but the replacement part is cheap.

Thanks again. I'm going to see if I can get them to do it. If that fails I may try to fix it on my own. Don't have soldering equipment or know how, so I'd be nervous about possibly screwing the whole thing up, but if it looked simple enough, I might try it, especially if it would save me some money.

The part is the whole assembly and probably has a ribbon connection. The pictures in the manual are too small to tell on my phone and I didn't get around to reading any of it.

On the last day of my warranty, they gave me a new phone, due to the USB not working!! Happy!
