Default Noob Back to Stock Question

Ok, so I have searched, but there's a ton of info and some of it seemed a little conflicting.

I need to return my S3 back to stock and reset the flash counter for a warranty return. I'm running CM10 and have CWM installed. I found this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1904099

Is this the easiest and safest way to go?

I do not have the knox warranty void when I booted into download mode.

Can I just download the MD5 or MB1 file, boot into CWM and flash it? Which one should I download? Does it matter if I flash from internal or SD card?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Yes you can flash this from cwm.. It shouldn't make a difference if you put it on the internal or external sd, I typically prefer external so if I format the internal sd and for what ever reason I end up needing to flash this again I am not having to wait on another download of the stock package

Great, thanks! And this will get me back to stock, 100%, no way for BB to tell I've had it rooted?

Which file should I flash, MD5 or MB1?

Yes
Sign up for the new Copy file storage service with this link and get both of us an extra 5 GB!
Or sign up for Dropbox with this link and we can both grab some extra storage!

I would flash the NEW MD4 WITH COUNT RESET 16gb ONLY
MD4 MD5- 4a1d2bcd0f3ea0e5b41fb4d91fb7802b

or

NEW MD4 WITH COUNT RESET 32gb ONLY
MD4 MD5- 4e0d0b2c8121aaa059384cd8c520d7ac

which ever is appropriate for your device
