Because u apparently have an old bootloader. Flashing a custom rom via CWM does not affect your bootloader. Only FW-packages do that. You can still have a custom rom based on ICS and old GB bootloader.

I've always reset the counter and got rid of the triangle this way:

1)Flash an old bootloader via Odin (u can find it here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1075278)
2)turn the phone off and insert jig
3)Flash ICS bootloader back

Switching between bootloaders can be risky if installation process goes wrong, but I have never had any single issue with that. I've done it several times and it has always worked like a charm. (Doesn't matter if your device came with preinstalled ICS, for example my freshest handset was produced in april this year and thus it came with 4.0.3 by default - The method above still works on it.)

And BTW. I don't think this topic should belong this section.

If you're on ICS and want to stay on ICS, you can just use this app:

Otherwise, you'll need to flash whatever stock rom you need and then I guess you can use your jig.

Why the JIG doesn't work and how to make it work
The JIG that is commonly made/sold is a partial copy of Samsung's Anyway JIG BOX. It copied the box by putting a 301K resistor across pins 4&5 of the micro USB pins. This became well known.

The Bootloader was changed so that the presence of the Resistor is checked for during a short period immediately after flashing and ( I think ) it requires the USB power to be present.
If you make a USB to Micro USB cable with the 301K resistor in place as usual ( pins 4 & 5 ) and connect this to your PC and to the phone, the the JIG Cable will work with the current new style bootloaders exactly as before.

The nice thing is that it is now easier to make as as the micro usb was difficult to open and solder .. but the USB end has more space.
If you want to know more look at the Fairchild FSA9280A-88 Datasheet & 3200

I heard that Sammy had blocked this, didn't realise there was still a way to get it working! One thing though, where are you soldering the resistor if it's plugged into the PC?

I cut open a mini-to-micro USB adaptor, and soldered a 301k resistor across the pins in the adaptor. I used sleeving to stop shorts from the resistor leads.

I used the adaptor with a standard USB-Mini USB 1m cable left over from another gadget.

Ahh good thinking. I was wondering since it'd probably be much harder to do with just a micro usb cable. Might try and make one myself this summer, hopefully I'll never need it but it could be a bit of fun. Cheers man
