I have a much simpler and hassle free root method. Is anyone willing to test?
It doesn't involve flashing kernels or roms via odin or dumping images via adb.

So anyone willing to test?

Flash this from stock recovery.
Keep the file in external sdcard and flash.

Does it work?! Does it increase flash counter? Does it modify device status? Does it work on 4.1.1 or only 4.1.2? Uhmm.... so many questions

Question
Anybody tried?

BTW how to check the binary counter state? What is the original value of the counter? How can I check whether it is changed?

Well if it works then you sir deserve many thanks, 5 stars and a sticky!


Interesting question though: how did you manage to bypass the required samsung signing?
