I did this last night. I bought Triangle Away and reset the counter to 1. It was previously 2 when I rooted the 1st time. Then unroot and factory reset. But when I check the status, it still say modified so the same message "Your device has been modified. Software updates are not available" shows up again.

What is supposed to be on my device status if its not rooted? It says modified right now even when I unrooted it last night. Thanks.

Edit: Btw, I checked the update using the check update from phone. Is there other ways to check let's say Kies?

Are you on a full stock rom now, including stock recovery?

I didnt really install any ROM when I rooted. I just root to be able to use apps that needs it rooted.
After not being able to get the update last night, I rooted it again and restored my apps but on stock rom.

But I am open to trying it again tonight if there are some recommendations.

You have to be on stock recovery to not be modified. If you still have CWM or TWRP, then you will always get the modified device pop up. Triangle Away just resets the binary so that there is no trace that you modified the device.

I see. How do I get to stock recovery? Really appreciate the help, very new on this.

Edit: I found this link:

http://www.andromods.com/unroot-lock...h-counter.html

But maybe you guys recommend something else. TIA.

Edit2: Well after reading the above link. Its exactly the same thing I did except I didnt uninstall Triangle Away after resetting the counter.

- I reset the counter
- Opened SuperSU and full unroot
- Recovery then factory reset/wipe

Then I checked and its still modified. I just followed this:

Quote:
If you want to unroot for some reason :

From stock rom and root by Chainfire method all you need to do : Triangle Away app ,SuperSU / setting/ full unroot. Reboot into Recovery / Factory reset.
Anyway, I'll try it again tonight. Thanks guys!

Zedomax gives a good tutorial on how to do it. Here's the link: http://galaxynote2root.com/galaxy-no...tock-firmware/

Do I have to flash a stock ROM even if I didnt really install any custom ROMs?

I'm sure you can just do recovery but as of now I don't know where to find just the recovery. The method Zedomax does is a complete package of everything stock.
