    I forgot
    Open SuperSU, go to settings, near the bottom there's an option called "Full unroot". Tap it, it'll completely uninstall su.

    But 9 times out of 10, as long as you didn't change the stock ROM or kernel, carriers won't care too much about rooted devices.

    I recommend undoing changes you did after you rooted such as installing busybox and xposed framework then unrooting.

    haha oh god, thats so simple and i was looking for 2 hours on internet xD praise the sun you replied me :)
    (ah man, i must continue playing dark souls)

    No no, i did not change a thing, its stock rom kernel, i just did that rooting method, thats all..to be honest, i need rooted phone for all sort of goodies, but i can live with out rooted device..but main thing i did id is because new android forbid writing to device and external storage..for example i tried to delete some photos and it wont let me unless i rooted my phone..annoying...

    Why do they even lock android, it should be rooted by default...
    Anyway, thank you so much fella dark souls player :)

    I dont understand?

    i just did that method from that website, i did not installed busybox and xposed framework as i remember...but how can i check that?

    ony if that rooting method installed it for me?? idk...

    Most root methods will install busybox for you, since it contains a lot of essential tools used by root apps and even non-root apps. You can use this to uninstall busybox: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=stericson.busybox
    If you don't see "xposed installer" listed in your apps then you don't have xposed framework installed. It's usually not included unless you install a custom ROM.

    You want to check your flash counter first also
    Turn off the phone and boot into odin mode by holding home+pwr+vol down
    You want to check the part where it says custom binary, if it says yes or any number above 0, the counter tripped
    Triangle away can get rid of it but I'm not sire if it supports your variant of the s3

    Metoroid0 If you didn't do anything like that then I guarantee that you should be safe. I advise that you follow Joe88's advice

    I suggest that you check out the links above and give them a through read. You can manually update using ODIN. TriangleAway did the job for me although I'm not sure if it works for you since I can't find your model over there.
