Hey my custom binary it says yes. In not sending it back to warrety, I just want to revert back to stock. So am I allowed to continue without the jig?

The counter does not have any control over the actual function of the phone. It only provedes information. So go ahead and flash back to stock if you want to. That will also restore your AT&T boot screen and remove the yellow triangle.

And if you want to clear the counter later, buy a jig.

Correct. It's only been less than two months since release.

I'm considering returning my phone to Target so I can get in on the Walmart deal. The jig will be delivered on Wednesday or Thursday, and it takes 3 business days after I return the phone to reset my upgrade eligibility, which might put me after the last date (Dec. 3rd) that the Walmart deal is available. Do you guys think the counter is usually checked when a return is processed?

@Yovee

Most people seem to think if you remove the i9100 boot screen with the yellow triangle, you are safe, and that the chance someone will actually look at the flash counter is very unlikely. I don't know, but I can say I have never seen a post where anyone said that their return was rejected for this.

You can remove the boot screen and yellow triangle without a jig. See the post in my signature for more info.

I've returned/exchanged a fair amount of Samsung phones over the past few months and never had an associate look at it. I'd say that half of them never even turned the phone on. At least they did verify the IMEI and accessories.

Thanks a lot for your responses guys. In that case I think I'll just restore the original firmware, get rid of the yellow triangle, and return the phone.
