I'm sure many of us here would highly appreciate this effort and we can also carry out further testing as many users reported that soon as they flash back to that stock image, their issues have disappeared and everything starts working properly.
I will quote another user in reference to this:
Here's to hoping one of you knowledgeable developers are able to assist us with this request.
Are you talking about the system.img from invisibleks first image?
Or the stripped and rooted one?
I think the first one invisiblek made is pretty much what you are asking for. Remember, there's no SCH-I535 source code out there for people to build a system image from. These images are hacked system images from the stock image (found here: http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=SCH-I535
). One can't really "remake" the system image until we can fully bypass the encrypted and locked bootloader.
If you want to roll your own system image with the su binary and SuperUser you can follow the instructions here:
They seem pretty straight forward.
However, I'm pretty sure that's what invisiblek did for his/her first rooted image (the one that isn't stripped).
Hope that helps. I can't do much of anything till my SGS3 arrives tomorrow.
