Root [Verizon] How to reflash stock rom?

Hi, I just purchased a used Galaxy S3 that is rooted with a custom rom. Could someone tell me where and how to go about putting the stock rom back on it? I am familiar with rooting Android devices and flashing roms, more specifically Motorola devices, and back in the day the HTC Droid Eris. I know on the forums here people used to have downloads to the stock Moto SBF files and I could use RSD Lite to flash back to stock. I was doing some searching about how to flash the GS3 but I am a bit confused. Thanks in advance for any help!

Do you want the rooted stock rom, or do you wish to completely unroot to a stock rom?

To unroot and go back to stock, install this via ODIN:

After you do the ODIN thing, you can update to the current MF1 via OTA updates.

Now, if you want your flash counter reset to 0, see this guide, post #2:
