Went to samsung today .... Like I said I think that the system status that changed to custom after die (was official before) will be a problem. Mainly because beside me there was 3 guys with the same problem....I think samsung will use all they can void warranty) I had one report before die complaining it was not available the update via kies for 4.1.2.... I called again before leave the phone to ask what they will do since there is no 4.1.2 available for my phone. At the beginning he said they know there is a problem but only for root devices. Then he said that the firmware from the carrier 4.1.1 can have a problem...at least that is my situation. I have no idea about why the system status changed ...binaries are ok.... If someone has information that help me to argue I will appreciate. They ask one week to fix... I would like to be ready ... First argument will be they should check when I left there so how can I know they tried to flash something and that changed but maybe would not be enough. Thanks .

Are they voiding your warranty cause the system status changed to custom? I thought this happens to all S3 that suffer Sudden death which can access download mode? Is the device name blank also?

I don't think you will get problems. It is completely NORMAL that in the "half" sudden death case, where the bootloader/download mode still works, the system status switches to custom.
Even on the Note 2 (has SD-Problem, too) it switches to exact that state:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7#post35977007

I assume the bootloader checkes some system files and swiches then to official.
But cause of the eMMC is half broken and the bootloader can't check that files, it stays on custom.

@Rob does binary count reset to No after sudden death also or does it still show the count if I rooted and did not use Triangle away app

Long way for a fix yet, no point in giving false hope to people just puts devs under pressure that are working hard out on it.

In the "half" sudden death case the counter swiches "automatically" to 0/no. You didn't need to run triangle away before sudden death.
I assume the counter value is stored in the part of eMMC that is not readable by the bootloader after "half" sudden death and so the bootloader shows 0/no.

well I read some people out of xda complaining samsung did that
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp...topicid=111571

To say that system status custom means the device was root sounds like the defense of samsung keep saying there is no problem in non root devices.
That is why I went myself and left a letter saying I was running offical carrier firmware (which is true.. didnt say anythink about root (was not before die) or download mode info because by now I have no idea what are these things and asking for a new device with 4.1.2 which is not available for my carrier but is for unbranded phone). I even asked if they needed I could wait they try to fix or check something (I knew they would not, even having techincals there, and they really didnt...only checked for physical aspects).
I have no experience with samsung warranty service here, but many dramas with LG, so I need to be ready.
