As the title goes I'm wondering if there is a counter which is triggered when root and can not be reversed when unroot.
Its the only thing that stops me (and I suppose I'm not the only one) from rooting in order to debloat & freeze some stuff.

Can root and unroot without issue on this device, no counter that I am aware of. I have gone back to Stock a couple of times now.

Thank you for your answer.
The thing is that I worry for any future update (international D855 is my variant). What / if we realize then that actually there is a counter.
I know it sounds as metaphysics but its just pure ignorance on my behalf.

There isn't a binary count like on Samsung phones ,at least I haven't seen one yet.

If so, this counter goes back to default value when unroot or showing something that means the phone had been rooted?

On the G2 was always, even after a hard reset or reflashing the firmware. I do not know the G3...i did not root.

Thanks for the code (it seems very helpful): my display result is "Not rooted".
Now that we have an anchor we need the same info from a G3 user who unroot or went back to stock...

Hey,

I entered the 845#*855# code and now im in the hidden menu but I'm stuck there?

The phone is very slow and doesn't respond to anything I do. I even unplugged the batteries for a few minutes but it always boots up in the AAT mini OS 3.1 hidden menu.

When I press Normal Boot (+power) or any other options nothing happend but only red crosshairs appear?

How can I reset my phone now???

I tapped the code but nothing like that happened. After I check for root I just went back & and back again on my dial.
Is your phone a 855 (as in the hidden menu) or a 400 variant?
Other than that I can't think of.
