Default Does flashing stock ROM remove Custom Recovery?

Hi guys

If i flash the official SAMSUNG ROM on my phone? Would that take me back to stock recovery? It would take my root access off right?

Thanks

So would this happen with my i337m? Would flashing stock remove Custom Recovery and Root?

Thanks.

No sounds like you either didn't make sure it was on working did u try this with cwm and selection of twrp. Or did u just use the twrp . But u could have broken root that is known to happen with certain devices . Did you try and reroot or use the root checker application from the playstore .

I wouldn't get rid of it if you still rooted with the stock first unroot and return to stock . What was you trying to do . Explain . Unroot or stay rooted and run stock .

That's very easy but the BIG question is did you make a BACKUP . If so you would flash your stock os rom you made as a backup to the phone . And you would do a unroot . This unroot will remove the su app from the phone and bam . BUT I HOPE YOU HAVE A STOCK ZIP.
