Wait, how/where did you download your firmware? I can't download the US firmware...the page leads to unreachable in my browser.

Hmmm...downloaded it to my phone, but without an actual computer to unzip and look thru the files, I can't say whether this is legit or not

odin won't increase the counter if its the original firmware package from samsung.. to use heimdall you need to unpackage everything first if i'm right.. heimdall will increase the counter even with samsung's official firmware. i might be wrong though. about triangleaway, untill it's useable, i won't say anything.

Has the latest LA3 firmware for p6210 been posted yet? I've searched through this whole thread but I haven't seen it.

Yeah, kinda. From what I've seen the counter only increments during kernel flashes, and only when flashing kernels which are not signed by Samsung. Kernels from Samsung firmware releases can be flashed like this without incrementing the counter:
Code:
heimdall flash --kernel zImage
Samsung firmwares contain many files, such as boot.bin, zImage, recovery.img, factoryfs.img, etc. Each of these files gets flashed to the corresponding mmc partition.

i just flashed the recovery.img using heimdall without increasing the counter. not the original recover.img, but the one with cwm.. then i flashed root.zip to root.. all without using an external sd card. woohoo!

Yes, this is certainly a good way to flash recovery without an external SD card. I'm telling you guys, Heimdall is good stuff.

Regarding the flash count: I guess that confirms that the only partition which gets "counted" is the kernel/"boot" partition. Not particularly helpful, but good to know. There seems to be a lot of misinformation floating around XDA's newbie population.
