Hello all!

I was wondering if anyone here knows how to reset the flash counter after rooting my s4 mini. I read somewhere on the internet that s4 mini doesnt save a flash counter. Also i know that triangle away doesnt support s mini

Hope to hear from y'all

Regards

If you use Odin just check F.Reset Time. this should reset the counter. But if you want to do this to get back functional OTA I#m not sure if it wil work.

Hi. thanks for the reply. What is functional OTA?

So you are not sure if this procedure will reset the flash counter.

If you flash a custom recovery or anything custom your OTA function breaks that means you cant update your system by ckecking in settings --> system update. because the custom change is recognized. And by resetting this counter you can get this back. Odin does this for sure for instance if you reflash the firmware (2x) OTA wil work again. But I'm not sure if the counter is resettet when you flash an unofficial recovery with Odin.
