In short the answer is yes.

Kindly hit thanks if this helped.

The trick would be to install Mobile ODIN which from I gather requires root prior to installing...right?

This question is kind of off topic, but I know somebody in this thread can answer. I'm rooted, still running stock, for the moment. I wanted to know if installing a new boot animation, or kernel will trip the counter? Thanks in advance.

Well now, root is required for Mobile ODIN, I'm wondering how can it be used to actually root

I was able to Push Mobile ODIN via ADB to a Galaxy SII (Unmolested Stock).

Yes. Especially if done through PC based ODIN.

Does everything dealing with the S3 have to be done with Odin? Can't do the boot animation the old way? Like just putting the boot animation zip into the correct folder? Or do it using ROM Toolbox?

you don't need odin for anything. It is one of many ways to root. You surely don't need it after rooting for boot ani's or flashing anything. What can't be done with simple root access can be done with a non-stock recovery.

Installing Titanium from Google Play will never Trip Flash Counter.

NO it will not trip flash counter but it depends how you root
I am using Titanium Backup after rooting with root66 and my flash counter shows 0 only system status is as Modified rest every thing is normal.
Yes counter can be reset to 0 by using Triangle away.
