Steps to go back to stock rom from cm11.
I am now using CM11, I go back to stock rom of SP.

My phone has a unlocked Boot-loader, root access and kernal (3.4.0-pref-g9a1a169 build01@cyanogenmod #1)

I am planing to do a fresh install with everything like how it was in stock. including unlocked boot-loader.

Can anyone please tell me the detailed steps on how to do so.

Get Flashtool and a 4.3 ftf. In my signature you'll find .205 SG ROM for C5303. Afterwards, install appropriate drivers. I highly suggest to run the executable in the installation dir. Navigate to "drivers" folder in Flashtool install dir (default C:\Flashtool\drivers) and run the installer there in.
  1. After Flashtool being installed, navigate to the install dir (default C:\Flashtool)
  2. Copy/move your recent downloaded ftf into the "firmwares" folder (default C:\Flashtool\firmwares)
  3. Open Flashtool as an administrator
  4. Shut your phone down beforehand
  5. On flashtool, click the lightning icon
  6. Choose flashmode
  7. Choose your desired firmware in the main box.
  8. Since you're seemed to start fresh, leave the "Wipe" section alone. This will wipe APPSLOG, CACHE, and DATA. Don't touch other as well, unless you have different intention.
  9. Click "Flash" button. This will summon a window requesting you to connect your phone.
  10. Prepare your USB cable. Connect the USB to your computer. While holding the volume down on the phone, connect the other end of the cable to your phone
  11. This will make your phone and computer connected to each other in "flash mode"
  12. Flashing process will initiate. Wait until it completes. Please be careful to not disconnect your phone throughout the process!
  13. After flash complete, your phone will restart.
  14. Have fun!

Hi all!
I have question for all of you-Is 200mb ram normal in 4.3?
What is better for you 4.1.2 or 4.3

I barely remember my experience in 4.1.2 as I don't inspect the RAM very well at the time. It also happens that I only able to use 4.1.2 for a really short time (I bought the SP quite late) and the glorious but bad 4.3 has arrived! 4.3 is known to its RAM management problem. So, 200MB to 78MB Available RAM is normal yet sad for the 4.3. If you still want to use stock 4.3, you may need to tweak your ROM so it will manage its RAM more efficiently. I am however, have no experience in this, but I do notice some people that are happy with their stock ROM and claimed to have its RAM steadily at 300MB to 400MB.
