Default Warranty!!

Hey guys

Im gonna take advantage of my warranty and repair my phone but first i want to know something. I flashed CM11 and then reflashed original firmware. I didn't used any "triangle away" or other software to downdrade to original....just odin. Is there any way that Samsung will know that i used other software? Is there any way to find out if the counter meter changed?

I ask this because i have a bug. If i plug out the charger or USB cable the phone still shows that the cable is pluged in either on USB or charger!!!

Can someone help?

Try re-flashing stock rom once again.
Otherwise, i don't think it would be that big problem. I've had several visits at service center and the people there were completely dumb ! lol

I had sended my phone back a few weeks ago for battery problem the only thing they did is "upgraded" the phone to 4.2.2 but it was already on 4.2.2, so it worked fine for 1 day then but now if i charge the phone to 100% and after 5 hours it is empty i need to charge my phone 3/4 times a day! i am carying a duracell 3 and 5 hours portable chargers with me!

Ok...so yesterday received the phone from Samsung's service center and they said like this...changed the usb load module, changed battery and resofted the phone. And the problem is no more.
