    Worked wonders! I was worried my rooted phone won’t boot (or other probs) after the ota, but following your steps helped me out. Thank you!!!

    I did everything as posted and it did reset my flash count to 0 and says Samsung official for current binary. However, OTA did not work for me and it still says “modified” under status in about device. Any help would be appreciated.

    Mine is still showing modified as well even though it reset the counter and the Custom Binary says Samsung Official. Please help!

    Chuck – I’m the guy that left the comment just before yours. I never received any help and its been about 2 weeks. I ended up unrooting my phone, getting the update, then rerooting. Its a pain, but I used the exact software I used when I rooted the first time. I made sure to back up everything because you WILL lose everything when you unroot (you flash stock firmware, so its basically a brand new phone at that point). I was going to leave it unrooted, but the ” syncronoss TEDC” file that I deleted to enable tethering came back when I unrooted. Hope any of this helps, but I couldn’t wait for a response. Lol

    Scott – I appreciate your reply. My problem is I bought the phone already rooted and have absolutely no idea how to do it or what program was used to root it. I took it back to the Sprint store a few weeks ago and had them reset it, but it was still rooted afterwards. I am really frustrated at this point. If I knew how to re-root the phone I’d do it.

    I’ve never done it before I did this phone the first time and now I’ve done my neighbors too. I just searched the web for “how to root us cellular galaxy s3” and watched a YouTube video. Just replace us cellular with sprint and do a little research. Read the comments at the bottom and make sure there aren’t too many complaints. It’ll have a link just under the video to download the software. Go to – settings-about device- and get your model number and android version. If you want to post your model number and android version I will find a video with a similar process to what I used. Its fairly easy but I will help you all I can.

    The workaround option is found within the Triangle away program it is the last option in the list. After enabling this you need to reset your phone for it to say status normal. it also says if you want to do an OTA update you need to disable this option before proceeding. so I suggest turning off Mobile data and or wifi.

    This app does work. If you follow the directions and verify your phone this app works like a charm!!!

    Brilliant. I followed the steps and as I write, my Galaxy s3 is checking for software updates instead of getting the nasy message “can update modified phone”.

    Followed it for my Galaxy S3 I9300 and worked like a charm. At least the cell checks for an update 🙂 Awaiting the release of 4.3 this month !
