Hey people,

Wondering if someone could help me to answer my questions about rooting my S3. I've rooted my phone before and then soft bricked it after CM10.2 started playing up on it, so my mate's dad fixed it (he's a director at Samsung UK). Trouble is, it got reset to stock and now I want to root it again etc. When I go into download mode, it says I have 7 counts on the binary counter. My stupid question therefore is, is this a problem and do you think it'll be alright if I 're-rooted' my phone as such?

Many thanks!

Nope, wouldn't hurt a bit.

Awesome! Just out of curiosity (and to ease my conscience), why is that?

That's just for samsung to know how many times you've flashed a custom firmware or recovery. If you want to reset it, you could use the
Triangle Away app!
