Default [WIP] Reset Binary Counter

Please note that if you perform this procedure, you do it at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damage!


For resetting binary counter :

In terminal emulator/adb shell, do this :
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0 bs=1 count=1 seek=3145732
Exclude $ & #.

Make sure that you issue the correct command as this is extremely risky and if done incorrectly, might result in a HARDBRICK.!!

I need someone to test if this method works on the s3 mini. This has been tested on GT-I9070. Please do this at your own risk.


If you feel my work worthwhile, please consider donating!

Yes but we also risk a hard brick I wanted to try but changed my mind when saw about hard brick. Sorry I hope someone else will test it.

wouldn't it be more safe to examine multiple mmcblk0 contents first before blindly trying to overwrite a byte in flash…
sry it just feels a bit blindheaded to do it that way… lazarosh has hopefully first made a backup of the partition before erasing the byte :P to recover the previous state as the flash counter was clearly not in that place on his device and he may have overwritten different data…
