Hello All.

So I rooted this S3 when the latest firware was the 4.2. My wife took the OTA update for 4.3. The phone did not brick or lock. Now I need it back to original but everytime I book the phone it says the SAmsung logo and at the bottom it has an open lock. Also when on download mode it says it has a custom firmare and has a counter. When I ran a root check software it says it is not rooted. When I do the Vol Up+Center+Power it do not go to custom recovery no more(I believe I had clockmods ot TW) I just need to have the phone back to original so I can sent it to verizon since I upgraded phones. Thank you

The counter will not reset upon Odin flash, at least it didn't for me. The padlock did disappear the first time I flashed but its back.
