Hi guys,

I have installed CyanogenMod on my phone, now I want to sell the phone but the buyer wants the stock OS loaded. I have looked everywhere for a download link for the stock ROM, South African version.

Has anyone here installed the stock ROM, unrooted their phone?

Is it even possible to get the phone back to stock (completely unrooted)

Any advised I'll really appreciate.

Thank you

Look for the appropriate firmware here, download it and flash with Odin. If you are rooted and you use Chainfire's SuperSU, there is a feature in there that will allow you to unroot, but I have never tried it on a custom ROM. Do this at your own risk. Also ask on XDA if no one else can give you a proper answer. But you should be fine with a factory reset and a clean install (wipe everything) with a firmware from the link. SA firmware is XFA, XFV, (... and others I can't remember)
