Odin [how to] from k0nane needs to be updated with the official tar files from Sammobile. As the ones currently posted in his op will trigger flash counter!
Please if you are concerned about your flash counter being trigger do not use the files he provides, go to sammobile website register and search for i727 download the files for skyrocket and the tar.md5 file flash it with Odin that is the only proven way to not trigger counter.
Hope k0nane will update this some day......

What happened before this happening? Was the device working fine? What did you do to cause this?
More detail please.

So I have read the entire forum and feel mixed review on if this is.safe for someone who just got a sky rocket. My android version is 2.3.6 i727ucla3. Is this a safe method?

Hmm. This is definitely incrementing the counter as noted. Also, I didn't check auto-reboot and the flash completed successfully, but the phone would only reboot into the boatloader claiming there was a firmware update error. Should letting it reboot automatically make a difference?

I'm no stranger to Odin. Just found this odd and didn't see a similar error reported in the thread. I reflashed twice already.

I learned the hard way what Odin will do. I hard bricked my phone. No lights, nothing after using Odin to go back to 2.3.5 stock. I used pit section and PDA. Should had only used PDA however I never seen any instructions on sammobile. During the Odin restore I noticed the progress was not moving after 20 mins so I pulled the plug and battery. Life was gone from phone. It had been 3 months since I used Odin for the skyrocket so I thought I would use my memory. Nope I was wrong. Find the do's and don'ts for Odin flashing skyrocket. However got a replacement next day. So now I stick to DD commands unless it is for recovery so I can flash.

Using the sammobile tar is the same as any odin tar. Place tar in pda, make sure only reboot is checked, phone is recognized in the com port, press start.

WOW this thread needs to be updated!!! Or un-sticky! The information is WAY old! Any newer collections of ROMS/Kernels out there?

EDIT: NEVERMIND! Here it is: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1573218

But still... mods should unstick this thread IMO... the other one has all the current info. PPL could brick their phones using this ancient info!

This is why some people should never have their threads stickied.
They never stick around and update their fancy threads.

One of the most important threads in this forum subsection and it hasn't been updated in over five months.
