Question [Q] Broken screen - how to unroot, reset counter and factory reset

Hello all !!
I had a little problem with my phone. Somebody hit my pocket and I have broken screen. I think it's completely broken, screen is black, no touch response, nothing, zero, null
Phone is visible via adb and I successfully downloaded all my personal data from phone memory to my pc.

I want to sell this phone, but first I need to clear phone memory (my apps, my setting, my photos), because I can pay and repair it in Samsung Poland and keep my warranty.

Phone is rooted, has custom rom and pattern lock. I know how to flash stock rom via Odin, but it doesn't help me with binary counter.
What can I do? Need to make factory reset (I don't want pattern lock anymore), make counter reset (from 1 to 0) and unroot (is it possible via Odin)?

Thank you guys a lot for your help

There's picture of my phone

Hi, hmm..
If you reflash your stock ROM you'll wipe the data.. so best way is to reflash the stock ROM and thats how u unroot too. But not sure how for resetting counter with no screen.

Yes it will. Flashing a stock ROM will delete everything, phone becomes fresh and new.nothing inside it.
Flash the ROM via Odin 3. I know ur screen is broken but u can still get to download mode,press volume down+power button+home buttons at the same time. And keep pressing them for like 5 to 8 seconds, and then press volume up to proceed. THEN u can flash the firmware through odin 3.
Give a thanks button if i helped please.
