Default [Guide] Revert back to Original Stock Rom With Kies

Hi to all. This is a very simple guide to revert back to the Stock rom that came with your phone.
Odin is not needed, also no special skills needed. All you need is a PC with Samsung Kies installed.
Kies is best to be updated to latest version. latest one is 08-01-2013

So, let's start. If you were rooted and the custom binary counter has increased, please use TriangleAway prior to this guide.


1-) Open up Kies with phone disconnected, but keep it powered up cause you will need it for the serial number.

2-)Navigate here (tools) (picture 1) and select the 3d option (software upgarade and preparation). you will get this Enter GT-N7100 press confirm.

3-) enter your phones serial number(picture 3) wich you can find either under the battery or by navigating to yout phone Settings- About device- Status- Serial
Number. Press confirm. after pressing confirm you will be presented with a dialog which lets you know that the device will be wiped. Press Confirm again.
4-) you will now be presented with the version (picture4, it is for my phone. you will have maybe other) that is the latest for your phone and your serial number. press confirm and wait for the first download (picture5). wait till it finishes.

5-)in the next screen (picture 6) read and select Agree. put your phone in download mode by pressing volume down+ home button+ power on. do not release the buttons till the phone is in the screen that tells about warning. press volume up.
connect phone to PC and press down at Start Update button.
this will take a while to download cause the update is about 1GB.
wait till it finishes and phone boot up.
Set up as usual.

Hope it helps.

Wow, thanks!
I hust have a question about this, for example, if i ever want to rollback to carrier stock ROM, i should follow the steps above? If we do this, are we going to enable OTA carrier updates as long as we don't root the phone, right?

Thanks!

Do you think this procedure would work with a Note 10.1?
Ive triangled away, so the download screen says its official
But its still rooted, this seems a very simple and effective way to remove all traces of changes

Will this work coming from a 4.2.+ CM / AOSP based ROM?

It will work coming from any rom. Just backup, backup, backup your personal data. It will wipe internal sd.

Thanks... This is good to know. Question though... I live in Canada and my device was a UK version that I bought from a store here in Edmonton, Alberta. That being said... Will Kies be able to find my proper STOCK firmware given my location or does it find it based soley on the serial number?

It finds it base on serial number. If is is a UK device it will install the latest one for the specific serial number and UK.
