    Galaxy S3 back to Samsungs Firmware from Cyanogenmod

    Hey Guys

    Hoping you can help me can't find anything on Google. Basically the new 4.3 update came out for the galaxy s3 from Samsung the other day and I want to put my phone back onto this at the moment it's running cyanogen (latest) anyway to put it back to the stock firmware so I can upgrade to 4.3???

    I believe that stock ROMS are available on the Wanamlite site, but I have to say if you are only rolling back for 4.3 then give Wanamlite a go - it's based on Samsung source so you have all the original Samsung features back (NFC, motion controls etc.) with the bloat removed (although there's an update package to add it back in if you want to) and you get to keep root, use a better kernel and Wanam Xposed lets you customise loads of things.

    I've had WanamLite 4.3 on my S3 for a couple of weeks now and I love it

    Find the ROM on a site, be wary as the 4.3 was pulled by Samsung for being VERY buggy. Make sure its the latest release and not the buggy as hell old release.

    Then follow this guide Galaxy S3 i9300 Unbrick [restore to stock rom] [noobs][easy] - xda-developers

    EDIT: I'm assuming you're using an i9300 S3, if not DO NOT FLASH THESE ROMS!!!

    Stock: Stock GTI9300 Rom | Samsung Galaxy S III GTi9300 | Romhut

    Install one of those and run OTA update.

    I can't see why Wanamlite wouldn't work with Galaxy Gear, it's TouchWiz based and all the other features I lost when I went to CyanogenMOD work fine. Personally, I'd try Wanamlite first but that's just me

    WanamLite 4.3: WanamLite XXUGMJ9 V7.2 Android JB 4.3 Xposed -

    You could try Kies? To be honest, I'd give WanamLite a go. It's based on the official, stock firmware, just with a load of bloat taken out. I don't have a Galaxy Gear to test it, but as Wanamlite is built from official source code, I'm 99% sure it should work...

    Have Three released it yet though? I thought Kies might bypass network update. Other alternative is do what I said earlier and flash an earlier stock ROM then try OTA update and/or Kies.

    Shocked it didn't work in Wanamlite, the point of the ROM is to retain functionality. Are you 100% certain you're setting your Gear up right?

    Also, just a thought about Wanamlite, did you install the removed apps package? It could be that one of those apps is required to communicate with the Gear...
