I have a warranty, how i can clear my phone from custom rom count, root etc. I've heard about 'Triangle Away', but how can i launch it from "bootloop nexus"? Is there another way?

I have a feeling you're well on your way to "bootloop nexus".

There is no flash counter. There is only a tamper flag for when the bootloader is unlocked, read the stickied threads in General and there's a method to reset that.

Google doesn't care if you have any custom firmware/unlocked bootloader/"root" anyways, they'll still honor the warranty, as long as it's a hardware manufacturing fault and not something that came about because of anything you did to it software-wise.

Triangle Away if for Samsung devices that have a Yellow warning triangle after rooting... With a Nexus device you won't have this.

Read this thread for returning to stock.

thx for reply, but my emmc is dead...so i can't do this ;(
As I understand, only Samsung devices can be traced for root and custom ROMs?

It's about a Yellow Triangle, isn't it? Or you did you mean an inability to hide it from warranty service?

p.s. sorry for my english....

DO NOT use Triangle Away, it is only for Samsung devices. Nexus devices do not have a flash counter, so running Triangle Away serves no purpose and may in fact further damage your device.
