Default Going back to Stock

Hi all,

I am trying to revert my S3 currently on 4.1.2 with baseband I535VRBLK3 back to locked/unrooted stock. The guides I am finding either have broken links or are outdated. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!


i should mention: the stock roms that I have found so far have failed when I try using odin to flash them

Yes, all three files will format the phone's internal storage and return you to fresh, out of the box factory setup. It will be as if the phone is being activated for the first time.

This may be dumb question, but if I have VRUCNC1 now, could I flash VRBMF1 to allow me to root the phone? My final goal is to be able to use Clock Work Recovery and custom ROM.

Thanks

No you cannot flash back to VRBMF1 and root. You can ODIN flash back to VRUCML1 and root, but you will still not be able to use clock work recovery. Saferoot and safestrap recovery will be your only options.
