DO NOT FLASH THIS IF YOU HAVE UPDATED TO MK3 (4.3)!!!! IT WILL CAUSE A HARD BRICK!!!
If you are not sure what this means, boot to download mode. If it says "Knox warranty void" or 'Warranty bit" as pictured below then leave this page. This will not work for you.


I'll try to keep this simple.
So here it goes, short but sweet...
You know it, you love it. Single recovery flashed file restore to UNROOTED STOCK with STOCK KERNEL, STOCK RECOVERY, MODEM, and Normal System Status with a Flash Counter at 0. Basically a replacement for the odin tar method for a quick on-the-go restore. This is the go-to file for a last minute trip to the sprint store or for unbricking without the need for a pc or ODIN. This will do what odin does with the addition of resetting the flash count during flash. To keep a custom recovery flash one from below after rom flash before rebooting into the system. To keep root access flash this after install BEFORE rebooting into system.

As with just about any rom you'll find posted on these forums, FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK as I am not responsible for anything you do to your phone. Special thanks to @deviant.one, @Maddhadder90 and most recently @decimalman for the assistance in making the flash count reset possible for the 32gb Model.
** These zips contain full firmware flashing. Checking the MD5 is highly recommended
FOR THE SPRINT S3 (SPH-L710) ONLY!
