My brother wants me to unroot his s3 for warranty exchange, can I do this without tripping flash counter?

Assuming that you rooted the phone without tripping the counter (check the number in download mode of your phone), unrooting w/o tripping is easy. Just flash a Samsung stock rom on the phone. Since it's straight from Samsung Kies and not a custom image, it doesn't bump your counter.

Link to thread with stock images, LG1 is the newest release from Samsung: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1737848

If you did trip your counter when you rooted, there is an App called TriangleAway. It's sold in the Play store for a fee, or you can download the APK from the XDA forum site and push it to your phone for free. If you need that thread, let me know.

Hope this helps. Cheers!
