I have my S3 in a Revolution HD v51 custom rom. Everything was working very smooth until the phone all the sudden crashed and never passed the sammy screen again.

I tryed varies reflashes, recoveries roms etc. it seems it cant mount the internal sd. I've been reading for hours about possible solutionsI'm guessing some hardware error.

Is there a way to reset flash counter WITHOUT triangle away?

Any method or suggestion welcome. since the phone is already screwed.

Im having a similar problem except triangle away isnt working for me.... I follow steps and manage to load app on phone and then it reboots into its own recovery thingy and i press vol up and it does the thing to reset flash but when i got back into download mode i still have 6 flash counts!!

No, there is no other method to reset flash counter.

Triangle away only works on older bootloaders.

Triangle away will work, but not with the bootloader you have now.

Please take a look at this thread, may be it would help.

all you gotta do is downgrade your bootloader to the one other than the JB bootloader and follow the steps as mentioned on the guide so that the JB bootloader would not set the flash counter to an integer again other than 0.
