Do i have to root before flashing this ? because if i directly flash this on my un-rooted stock phone then i wont be able to backup my EFS/Rom in case something goes wrong ? and if i do root my phone first then it will enable the flash counter which i want to avoid.
So what do you suggest I should do to prevent any disaster from happening ?
Thanks again for earlier reply
If you need root - flash stock with root and enjoy
If need without root - flash pure stock...
counter will not increase
