    Do ya have a brick? Can't boot into recovery? Lost a stock back up?
     Well.. I had a soft brick and was searching and searching with no luck and was about to send the phone out for repair, which is an option and a good thing to know. The people at mobile tech video can fix a hard bricked s3 and a centura for 50 bucks. When I got lucky and ran across a member at another forum( thanks kenny1974) who got lucky and found a link to the stock tar and downloaded it while the link was still up and not dead. The person the created the tar is a member named Viper at the hofo forums.( thank you!)

    Anyway.. If you own the s968c, do your self a favor and have this handy and you will be back up and bricking in no time :-)

    just download the link above, its a rather large file, over 1 Gb. than DL Odin and make sure your driver are installed.
    boot into Odin mode and than plug in your USB cable, if all is good you will get a colored com box. browse to the tar file and slide it in the PDA slot the ONLY other things that should be checked are auto reboot and F. reset time and click start.  there ya go. quick and easy if you have the above file on hand.

    Haha thanks. Bricked my first SGS3 s968c and simply returned it to walmart. Flashed a CyanogenMod to it and broke the radio. Got my second one and made a full unbrick.img file after rooting. Have yet to make the same mistake of trying to install cyanogenmod. I really wanted to see what the hype was about.

    Moving on..

    Got CM10 installed fine. Radio works flawlessly. I have notices a slight decrease in signal though.. Maybe something to do with some build.prop differences between the stock and cm rom. I'll compare later and let everyone one what I find out.

    I registered for this website just so I can send a ***huge*** thank you!!!!! I purchased the Samsung sch-s968c staright talk phone from walmart for $300 for my son's birthday and the first thing he did was "brick" it trying to upgrade kies or something like that...anyways as you can tell I am basically technology illiterate but my son, his friends, two of my IT guys at work and myself tried everything to no avail. I was one second away from taking the phone back to walmart for what I am sure would have been a huge, long, drawn out process of trying to return the phone which very well may have ended with me in tears and $300 down the drain...but then I came upon your forum and this post and I, the most technologically ignorant person in the world was able to follow the instructions exactly and the phone is PERFECT now!!! I can't WAIT to see the look on my son's face when I return the phone to him in working condition. I cannot thank you enough! I don't know correct protocol for these forums so please excuse any mistakes I've made...and I have seen on some forums where you can send the author of posts a thank you gift like starbucks gift cars or something...not sure if that means an actual gift or people were just joking but if there is something like that please someone let me know...thank you again and again!

    I could sure use the file linked above as well. If anyone could re-up it, or if the OP could fix the link, I'd appreciate it sooo much!

      Hi
    The link says your account has too high of traffic and is temporarily disabled. Could you upload it to a different site like Google drive or something? I need my phone fixed asap. Many, many, many thanks in advance!!! This is the only place I've been able to find this file (for free)  :)

    Hey guys, I was hoping I could find a working link for this tar.md5, I've searched and looked everywher, I researched this phone before I bought it and thought I had all the right files together to root recover and ROM it but it seems there is truth to the post Rick_galaxy_proclaim made about the manufacture date on andafter Aug 7 2014, that is the exact date my kernel version shows so I gave a post Aug 7 device, this tar.md5 is my only hope of getting this device rooted, I would much appreciate access to it so I can flash my liquidsmooth rom and kernel then try the other d2lte roms. Thanks for any help

    If you could take it back and get your money. I would and go to swappa and you could pick up a nexus 5 for the same price.  My data speeds are so much better this way.. 4g LTE 45 a month. Good deal.
    The radio that comes with the s3 is old and being on straight talk there is slim chance of an update. Few ROMs were working with it. Slim is one.

    I like my Samsung devices, I'm more familiar with it but ill try anything, I'd settle for rooting for now if that's all I can do but unless the date issue effects other things then from what I've read on many posts between AA51 and XDA then there are roms that work with this device, unless the OPs are wrong the verizon  roms should work on this device, but that nay have changed, I don't know, the information about this device isn't very conclusive it seems, root is fine if I can get it though
