Default How safe is triangle away?

I have an s3 that in download mode shows a flash count of 4 I am Knox free (thank god) I have checked out triangle away and it gives a warning of potential brick. I just curious if anyone has bricked resetting the flash count on their device.

I've used it several times on my friends' phones with no issues.

Without the 4.3 OTA, it will perform magnificently. With KNOX, it'll hard brick via a corrupted bootloader. I've revived from a corrupted bootloader but it isn't fun or guaranteed. Enjoy the KNOX-free as long as possible.

My s3 will never have KNOX as long as I own it.

Triangle Away only works on ICS bootloaders. Useless if you are on JB, it will start counting every time you enter in recovery.

Are you trying to sell the phone? I believe the warranty is over for this phone so I wouldnt worry about it unless it bothers you. If you decide to take the plunge read read and read Chainfires thread for that apk.
