Saturday 10th of November 2012 / android.gs
Since there are numerous custom ROMs updates available for the Galaxy S3 handsets you should notice that it is important to know how to downgrade your phone to the stock ROM too. There are many reasons for concluding the mentioned fact, but I will detail the same a little bit later. For now, you must know that during the next few lines we will be checking in how to downgrade the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 model number L710 to the stock Jelly Bean LJ7 firmware and reset its flash counter so that you can restore the warranty of your device.This operation can also be considered as an update to the official Android 4.1 LJ7 ROM, as maybe you haven’t installed the Jelly Bean OS on your Sprint Galaxy S3 yet.

Need info abt HTC Evo 4G LTE Rooting Process before purchase


Wednesday 04th of July 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello, I, like so many others am trying to decide between the Samsung Galaxy S3 & the HTC Evo 4G LTE. One thing that I definitely want is to be able to root and flash ROMS on whichever phone I get. I know that root has been achieved on both phones but I'd like thoughts on developer support between the two, and which one (or both) can be set back to an original state where it's not known it was rooted for warranty purposes. I know HTC lets you unlock the bootloader but unless there's a workaround it'll say relocked on the bootloader allowing anyone savvy enough to check that it's been rooted. Wondering if current root versions are S-on, S-off or either with the owner choosing. Or perhaps S-off is a must in order to truly relock the bootloader so it says locked instead of relocked. I also read in my research that you can trip a counter on the S3 the counts how many ROMS have been flashed... Although I also read it's possible to root without tripping the counter but if anything goes wrong, you can't reset the counter. Now, it seems like the S3 would have the most dev support since

One big advantage of owning an Android smartphone is that it is very customizable. You can easily flash custom ROMs, tweak the phone’s performance, and flash mods that will totally change how your phone works.Flashing custom ROMs will also increase your phone’s flash counter. The binary flash counter is Samsung’s way of monitoring whether you flashed custom software  to your device, and how many times.  Such counter could be used against your warranty claims.There are times when returning your phone to stock firmware and/or resetting the binary flash counter becomes necessary.  XDA Developers member billard412 has a package that let’s you do both in one go — and without need for external tools like Odin.This guide shows you how to revert the Galaxy S3 L710 to stock Jelly Bean build LJ7 and reset flash counter.WarningThe instructions in this guide are intended for use with the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, model number SPH-L710.

Device status Modified?!


Monday 27th of January 2014 / androidforums.com
Hello, About 6 months ago i tried to root my phone, i did it succesfull but later that week i decided i didn't need no root. I did not receive updates while my friends did, but now i found out why, in the settings->Device->Device status it says modified. I reset the flash counter and when i go in download mode it says this: ODIN MODE (Is this normal)? PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9300 CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official SYSTEM STATUS: Official Downloading... Do not turn off target !! I guess this is normal, right? I installed an app to check if my phone was still rooted and maybe when unrooting i did something wrong but no, it says triangle away cannot receive root priveleges, did you root and give acces? I'm on Jelly bean 4.1.2 My galaxy S3 is the international version So my question is, how can i get the OTA updates back? And set the device status back to official? Thanks already! -Nicolas
