    Will this wipe my data? Will my root access remain?

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi,Erich:
      Which ROM or firmware version you are using now?
      If now the firmware you are using is Samsung Stock firmware, and then you want to flash downloaded Samsung stock firmware (others version) via Odin:
      1. All your data will still remain.
      2. Root access are NOT remain.

      • http://www.facebook.com/LeOnCriSt Blanc Nuage’z

        on stock rom, want to flash new firmware, with detail from germany FW, branded, so need to factory reset BEFORE and AFTER flashing?
        or just need to do that AFTER flashing fw?

        btw, how to get updates OTA from poland, if i using germany fw, and from other country (ex: malaysia)?

        • rootgalaxys3iii

          Hi, Blanch. If your are running stock ROM and want to flash other stock ROM. Then you no need perform factory reset. In other hand, if you are running Stock ROm and want to flash custom ROM, then need perform factory reset.
          OTA only available on your Own region.

  • Ari

    Hi. I have my model name as GT-i9300T but i want to flash it with a UK rom that has the model name as GT-i9300T. Will i lose my data?

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi Ari,

      Are your S3 now is running Samsung Stock (official) firmware?. The phone data still remain same if your phone now is running Samsung Stock firmware.

      • Ari

        yes, im running stock firmware. its just that the Jelly Bean update for this firmware is not out yet. even Samsung doesnt know when its out. so i want to change to an international baseband so as to get the latest OS and also for future updates

      • Ari

        my current baseband is I9300TDULH1 and i want to flash it with a I9300XXDLJ1… thus my question whether i will lose all my data? THanks

        • rootgalaxys3iii

          Hi, Ari:
          In my opinion, i think that your phone data will still remain because your phone is running stock firmware. Previously, i have used Odin tried to flashed latest (GTi9300) jelly Bean to my phone S3 GT i9300 and i found that my phone all data and application still remain same (no lose any data)

          But Now you want to convert S3 GT-i9300T to GT-i9300 (International version) firmware. So , better you search and refer more other source to get the confirmation.

          • Ari

            Noted. Thanks

  • Gastón

    Hello!

  • don quilates

    hi! my phone was bought in france. then my s3 got bricked. i went to samsung service center to reprogram my phone to JB 4.1.1. My woory is they flashed a stock from a different region (Philippines).

    1. will i be able to update via kies when samsung releases 4.1.2?
    2. charging seems slow. do i need to buy a new charger issued in this region?

    thanks a lot!

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi don quilates,
      Yes you still can get the official update for Android 4.1.2. Now, Your firmware region is at Philippines. So, you only can get the firmware update when Samsung official releases the firmware to Philippines. Besides this, may i know how your phone bricked?

      • don quilates

        well i started to flash a rom and i didnt like it. so i restored my backup from CWM recovery. however, i did not format the cache, system etc. but only performed wipe cache, davlik, factory reset in CWM before restoring my backup. it went well at first, but when i started rom manager, the phone hanged. so what i did was to remove the battery. when i tried to start it up, it went into bootloop. the worst thing is, i cannot go to recovery mode but only in download mode.

        1. Is my error of not formatting the cache, system etc. under “mounts and storage” in CWM before restoring the backup the reason for bricking my phone?

        2. if you were in that situation? what would be the solution then?

        THANKS A LOT! Ur the man!

    Hi how can i get product code of SGS3 on android 4.1.1

  • Katya

    Hello! I have a huge problem. I wanted to upgrade to Jelly bean 4.1.2 but I knew nothing about regions and so. I upgraded my phone but the cellular network didn’t work. Then I installed the older 4.0.4 (i had it originally) with my region but the network still doesn’t work. I cannot check my product code either. Check Fus says that product code is not active. And *2767*4387264636# doesn’t work as well.. PLS help!

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi, Katya. You will get notice for update firmware when the Android 4.1.2 is reach your region. You only can use Check Fus to download the firmware when the Android 4.1.2 firmware is reach your region. You can refer here (Link:http://rootgalaxys3iii.com/how-to-check-and-download-galaxy-note-2-official-firmware/) to learn how to use Check Fus to check your region code.

    • pankaj ahuja

      JUST CHECK *#06# IF IT SHOWS YOUR ORIGINAL IMEI ON THE PHONE YOUR PHONE CAN BE FIXED OR OTHERWISE IF SHOWS ALL 000000000000000 THAN YOUR PHONE HAS GOT BRICKED AND WILL NOT SHOW ANY NETWORK.

  • Kwesi

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi Gurdeep. This is cause by your SD card and not id your phone or OS.

    • pankaj ahuja

      hi gurdeep,iwould recommend u to just take the backup of your memory card on your pc and then re-insert the card on your phone and format it in the phone itself.after its been done connect your phone to your pc via data cable and then manually transfer your data according to the folders made by the phone.cheers

  • Nitin Shivamurthy

    I have a custom rom installed and now want to get back to the stock rom !
    So i downloaded the Poland version ( 4.1.2) and the Indian version ( INU 4.1.1) as im from India !
    So which is better to flash ? the poland version or indian ?
    and what all steps do i have to take before flashing as i have a custom rom installed right now ?
    Will my pictures videos get deleted ?

    • rootgalaxys3iii

      Hi, Nitin. If you are running custom ROM, then need flash stock ROM. You just boot into the downloading Mode and flash the new stock ROM. Both Poland and India stock firmware able work on your phone. But i think it is better your flash your own region firmware.
      Remember, before start , please make backup all your important data. This is because you may need perform factory reset, clear data in the CWM recovery Mode. In other hand, if you are running stock ROM and flash another stock ROM, then you need not reset or clear any data. You can refer here for more info: http://rootgalaxys3iii.com/category/tutorial-solve-galaxy-s3-common-issues/

    • http://twitter.com/Vishwesh1960 Vishwesh

      INU is india unlocked and INS is India service. It is better to use INU version. you can use any SIM. Pictures normally do not get deleted.

  • Xenor

    For all of you who have stuck on the samsung logo after installing your new firmware,turn off your phone,then press and hold volume down and home button and shut down button,then on the menu that appears press wipe cache data and then restart your phone,if that doesnt work repeat the same procedejure and click wipe data/factory settings(BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE BACKED UP YOUR DATA FIRST BECAUSE IT WILL BE WIPED!!!)if you do this correct your Sgs3 will start normally with your new firmware.REMEMBER,try the first step if you havent backed up your data.

  • Elena Pell
