If you prefer a manual way then type the following line in terminal (or using adb shell):
Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=1 count=1 seek=3145732
Be EXTREMELY careful if you're typing this manually. One mistake can brick your phone!

Confirmed to work with Gingerbread and JellyBean.

I definitely wouldn't recommend that way to someone that doesn't know what those commands mean. If you want the easy way to reset the incremental flash counter download the app "triangle away". First make sure your phone is listed under supported devices, if it isn't you can check chain fires thread on xda and request it for your phone. Just so you know I wouldn't even worry I've sent phones back with just a factory reset and no one said a word. But if you want to reset it use triangle away.

Honestly told though...
"Redistribution not allowed" - Really? Well that's a very open and friendly attitude coming from a recognized developer on opensource scene...
