What's the quickest way to get the Samsung S2 back to stock ROM?

I am getting ready to sell my S2 on eBay (seems as though HUKD had minimal interest) but I need to get it back to its original state.

At the moment its running ICS Lite'ning ROM v2.6.

Can anybody offer advice on the quickest way to do this?

A simple tutorial/link would be nice.

Flash the latest stock build (available from XDA) using ODIN. If you need to use triangle away first, go ahead and use it.

Stock build will remove root access and restore the phone to its factory settings and UI.

Do you have a yellow triangle under where it says "Galaxy SII GT-i9100" when the phone boots up? If so, I'll explain, if not, ignore me.

As do I, it doesn't work on newer firmware, unfortunately.

You'll need to reset the flash counter and triangle and then flash the latest 3 firmware (might as well just flash Thee's ICS build rather than waste time updating to it).

That's the latest 3 UK firmware, it's ICS based.
