    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:eek::D . 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.
