The best will be the one that will better manifest itself on your phone, and so they are all the same, +/- so to speak.
If you read a couple of pages after the release of the next firmware, you come to the conclusion that they are all getting better and better.
However, after the next release it becomes clear that the penultimate was like everything and not like the last, and so on all the way. Pure water is subjective.
In addition, you need to take into account how the phone is used - all tasks are different.

How to find out the region for which issued Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300

1. If the phone was connected to a computer, then disconnect it.
2. InstallSamsung kies.
3. We launch Kies.
4. Go to the "Tools" menu ->"Firmware upgrade and initialization."
5. In the "Name" field, enter the GT-I9300.
6. Click the "Confirm" button.
7. In the field "S / N:" enter the serial number of the phone. The serial number can be seen through the phone’s menu "Settings" ->"About the device" ->"Status", or look at the sticker under the battery.
8. Click the "Confirm" button.
At this point, maybe the message '' GT-I9300 'does not support initialization ". With one of the serial numbers taken from the Internet, I received such a message. Maybe the serial is left, maybe something else ...

9. On the offer to reset the parameters and delete the data, click the "Confirm" button.

As a result, you get a window with a proposal to install the firmware of a certain version, where the region for which your device was manufactured will be indicated in brackets. Example:
Attached Image

10. If you do not need to flash the phone, then click the "Cancel" button.

By the way, in this way, you can compare the region that you see when entering the stock recovery (or inSamsung Galaxy S / S2 / S3 CSC) and the region that you received from Kies using the serial number. If they do not match, then the region has been changed on the phone.

How to remove the firmware from Kies

Thanks to our forum memberFoto40 for the idea!

This method is different from the one presented.earlierthe fact that we will pull out the firmware for the region for which the device was manufactured by the manufacturer.

The main role in our case isserial number apparatus. Kies by serial number will determine for which region to download the firmware. The instruction is written on the example of obtaining British firmware, but is no different for other regions. One instruction for all regions.

At the time of writing, emergency service types such as FACTORY multi-file firmware with data reset were received by entering the British (BTU), German (DBT) and Hungarian (XEH) serial numbers. All the rest are ordinary single-file, without resetting data like HOME. Please inform if anyone has any other information.

I draw your attention to the fact that no data on this instruction will be recorded on the phone!

We get the British (BTU) firmware.

All actions were performed on Windows 7.
1. If the phone was connected to a computer, then disconnect it.
2. InstallSamsung kies(if not installed).
3. Launch Kies.
4. Go to the "Tools" menu ->"Firmware upgrade and initialization."
5. In the "Name" field, enter the GT-I9300.
6. Click the "Confirm" button.
7. In the "S / N:" field, enter the serial number of the phone RF1C56VAJYF (this British serial is found on the Internet).
8. Click the "Confirm" button.
9. On the offer to reset the parameters and delete the data, click the "Confirm" button.
Attached Image

We get a window with a proposal to install the latest firmware.
Attached Image

10. We agree and get the download firmware update window.
Attached Image

11. In the received window "Firmware Upgrade and Initialization" we agree to familiarization and choose to continue without saving (the "Start update" button is still inactive).
Attached Image

12. Connect the device loaded intothe usual mode ( not in download mode! We did not plan to flash the device).
13. Click on the button "Start update".
At this time, the tmp file will appear in the% TEMP% folderXxxx.tmp whereXxxx- two hexadecimal numbers. This is our future firmware, but encrypted.
We smoke ...

In the process of downloading the firmware, the percentage of download will be shown.
After receiving the disaster recovery window

14. Go to the% TEMP% folder of the computer.
15. We are looking for a folder with the latest tmp dateXxxx.tmp.zipfolder. Copy it somewhere.
That's it, we “stole” the firmware from Kies!
16. Disconnect the device from the computer.
17. We kill the processes kies *, BinaryLoaderMgr.exe, AdminDelegator * and GT-I9300 *.
For example, from the command line
kill -f kies *
kill -f BinaryLoaderMgr.exe
kill -f AdminDelegator *
kill -f GT-I9300 *

18. Delete% TEMP% \ tmpXxxx.tmp.zipfolder (otherwise, only the place will be occupied in the temporary folder)
19. Delete% TEMP% \ tmpXxxx.tmp

So, we requested the region firmware via KiesBtu and got 3 file service (emergency, FACTORY ) firmware I9300XXEMC2 (KOR) with resetting settings and user data for the region KOR . Samsung anneals! ..

I posted the archive with the specified .tar.md5 filesI9300OXAEMC2_Samsung_BTU_Factory.rar on Yandex.Disk.

We get the Russian (SER) firmware.

To do this, use the instructions above, but instead of the British serial number we enter the serial from the PCT device.

Thus, we requested the firmware of the SER region via Kies and received a single-file conventional multi-regional firmware

It is grown up ..
I received an epiphany about the magic of the mechanism for receiving or not receiving OTA, after installing Root.
There are those who could not get OTA after installing the root, but there are those who succeeded. This is connected, in my opinion, with how it was received, namely: those who installed cf-auto-root could not, and those who installed the firmware were able to ..
The fact is that after installing cf-auto-root, the standard recovery changes, which is contained in cf-auto-root, but it does not pass the integrity check of the firmware, which is why OTA is not available ..
And in the firmware, everything remains as it is, therefore it is available ..
Your thoughts?

Ah ... is that so? In cf-auto-root, as I understand it, it is the stock recovery (not counting its own, temporary) that is stuck.

I understand about custom recovery and non-recording of files from zip - custom recovery does not mount the system partition without a command, and there is no command from the stock firmware, which entails not writing files.

Well, the stock is in stock, but the verification does not take the signature of the Samsung but the hash of the amount, and it must coincide with the initialized one initially, and the recovery from the central fund, as far as we understand, cannot provide this, due to its irrelevance to the newer firmware ..
True, the cf does not publish this anywhere, but there is no other way to save the recovery stock with the cf method of auto root, I think you can forgive him for that :)

A.S._id,
There is a clear indication of the use of stock recovery for the possibility of receiving updates by air. This is not enough.

As far as we know, CF-auto-root supposedly leaves the recovery stock ..
Sorry, you read my posts in ascending order I hope?

No, I don’t understand.
If the EDS would not pass, then somehow it could be tied. Like, the keys changed and the work got up. And the hash ... How do you calculate it in advance and shove it into the recovery? I could not find in recovery something similar to md5 hashes, as I found in bootloader.

So far I see that recovery.img consists of 2 gz-files. In none, did not find anything resembling a hash of the sum.

A.S._id,
Of course I read and I know that CF-autoroot puts its stock recovery, but its own, and not the one in the firmware, and it turns out that it is already not quite stock for this firmware, but it is already as if custom for a specific firmware, especially if I don’t have memory it changes even from the version of one of the firmware 4.1.1, and for 4.1.2 it is even more custom.

and compare the tails, they are at the very end after empty bytes, about 150 bytes in weight

Toto, and although it is stock ..

Tomorrow I will analyze the recovery from cf-auto-root. I, like, found how to determine the version.

Late I'm the first :)
That's what CF-Auto-Root frome hat

Well, as soon as I went home (and stayed at night without computing power), I immediately flew by :-)

This, as I understand it, is a temporary recovery. And the one that is second, permanent? There, the firmware version was clearly registered with a link to changelist.

This is just the second constant from cache.img stock ..
Well, those are not the recovery binary itself, but the kernel code

Well, here you have a complete unpacking

Thank! I watched ramdisk, but in binary form (under Windows I can not unpack it yet). There I saw default.prop with I9300XXELLC changelist = 764725. It remains to find the native I9300XXELLC with the same changelist and compare the md5 images.

A.S._id and I honestly wanted to go to bed earlier, planned to say so ... :-)

Well, after all, everything has already been proved - nothing else needs to be compared
Linux version 3.0.31-764725 ([email protected])

this is exactly what will stand after the installation of cf-auto-root and matches this
I9300XXELLC changelist = 764725


so good night - the question is closed!
Conclusion - after installing cf-auto-root, we return the recovery i.e. recovery.img
