[ROM/RESTORE] [AT&T/ROGERS/TELUS/BELL]Return to UNROOTED STOCK WITH FLASH COUNT RESET

14th July 2013, 11:12 PM   |  #1  
IF YOU HAVE TAKEN THE OTA TO STOCK TW 4.3 DO NOT USE THIS!! IT WILL CAUSE A HARD BRICK!!
I'll try to keep this simple.
So here it goes, short but sweet...
This is a 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 at&t store or for unbricking without the need for a pc or ODIN. Plan on selling to buy something newer? Flash this to restore your s3 to an out of the box ota-ready state for the buyer. This will do what odin does with the addition of resetting the flash count during flash. This WILL NOT touch internal storage!
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, wipe data/factory reset prior to flashing and FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK as I am not responsible for anything you do to your phone.
Special thanks to @mrksbrd for helping me bring this to the AT&T variant, @Turbojugend for helping me bring this to BELL, @FabC87 for helping me bring this to TELUS, @gutlessmerc for helping me bring this to the 32gb ROGERS variant and @tobesedated for helping me bring it to the 16gb ROGERS variant.
** These zips contain full firmware flashing. Checking the MD5 is highly recommended
FOR THE AT&T/ROGERS/BELL/TELUS S3 (SGH-I747/I747M) ONLY!

AS SAID IN THE WARNING ABOVE YOU MUST FLASH THE RESTORE THAT IS THE SAME AS YOUR STORAGE CAPACITY. UNLESS YOUR DEVICE IS LISTED IN THE SECOND POST, THERE IS ONLY A 16GB VERSION AVAILABLE. FLASHING IT ON A 32GB OR 64GB DEVICE WILL BRICK IT!
PM me if you own a 32gb or 64gb and are interested in helping me bring this to those devices.


Flash one of these to keep a custom recovery

Flash to keep root

STILL CONFUSED?
THANKS TO @wwjoshdew for the awesome vid!

IF I FORGOT ANYTHING OR YOU NEED MORE INFO YOU CAN PROBABLY FIND IT HERE. PLEASE SEARCH BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS

Another awesome job bro, works like a charm. Way better than using ODIN with the added benefit of resetting the flash counter

I'm afraid you need a PC. You don't actually have to be rooted you only need a custom recovery. You also need a PC to do that tho.
