As stated in OP, yes you have firstly to use Triangle Away.

Re: [Guide] Revert back to Original Stock Rom With Kies
I tried doing this just for fun. My phone was on the latest stock rom for my country. Didn't lose any data after going through the whole process.

Thanks for the guide!

Has anyone tried this successfully ? If so, now long did the phone take to boot up afterwards? I'm trying it for the second time and it doesn't seem to want to boot, it's stuck at the Samsung screen with the pulsing blue light behind the logo.

note more than 5min once it finish downloading and start flashing, otherwise
you may got bootloop. In that case
Reboot to recovery (vol up+home +power)
and wipe cache and data (factory reset)
PS:This will erase all your data.

Thanks. I had waited 15min+ so i knew something wasn't right. I ended up flashing stock through Odin but the reason i wanted to do it this way was so i would have the same firmware it originally came with. Not sure which one it was. I can't see one for UK so i'm using the German one at the moment.

Gonna give it another go, see what happens

You just had to do what the DR said. Kies installed the firmware for you. Do it again if you want the original firmware that the phone had out of factory (or the latest version of it)

I done it again with the same result...no boot. But after following the docs advice of wiping data it has worked perfectly. I'm now on 4.1.1. Got to admit to a tiny bit of panic there, but it's all good. Thanks .

No boot is normal cause you are downgrading.
4.1.1 is the latest official fw from sammy to your phone's carrier/hardware combo.
