Default [Q] Reset binary counter for I9100G?

I've a GT-I9100G with 3e recovery. Tried the old bootloader from Intratech's thread. But Odin failed (see image). I got it working by flashing the stock bootloader.

So here I assume old bootloader isn't compatible with I9100G, right? I've searched but everyone is pointing to the same bootloader used for I9100. While none of the G's owners reported back their success (or failure).

Any other ideas on how downgrade to be able to reset counter with a jig?

An i9100 is not a i9100G and they have different firmwares so the bootloader is also different.You could try and reflash an older firmware until there is and older flashable bootloader.Although once the new bootloader is set i dont know if its changable.If you know what older firmware you need I could look for it.

yea figured that pretty much. However the phone came loaded with the mentioned firmware. I tried to figure which firmware was compatible with it but no luck.

Any idea, resource or list one could look into? and how much old of firmware should one try to get the 2e recovery? I read somewhere that 3e was introduced on Android v2.2

Thanks cooza. I hope someone could point me to the right direction on this one.

its quite possible that the G-series being released after the i9100 international came with the new bootloader pre-installed from the factory and that will be why its so hard to find a solution.I can only guess that in time with new firmwares someone will be able to find a way to make the old i9100 bootloader compatable with the newer series phones like the G,M and T galaxies and hopefully it will be Odin flashable to help other owners out.

Here is a patch for the i9100g.
It is the bootloader from firmware DZKJ2.

i9100g_jig-patch.tar

Use ODIN and flash this file with checked bootloader option.
Then you can use JIG to reset the binary counter.
