If you flash the newer i777 leak that DG posted in the General section (I777UCKJ2) or went a little crazy and accidentally flashed one of the newer firmwares in the SGSII international section -- you'll find that they contain newer bootloaders -- the main difference being that they render the "jig trick" useless for resetting the custom firmware flasher.
This (if it works as advertised) will allow you to revert back to the older (stock) bootloader that will let the jig reset the counter.
Most likely as new ROMs are built for our phones, many devs will remove the bootloaders, since it's not really advisable to flash these unless absolutely necessary (which for instance it was on the Captivate when flash from a Eclair/Froyo ROM to a Gingerbread one).
Put this in another post too, but felt I should mention it:
Be forewarned -- DO NOT mess with or flash bootloaders unless you absolutely know what you are doing or are sure you need them. May things can be recovered from if things go wrong, but a bad bootloader flash can create a nasty "brick" that almost always needs some sort of professional help to undo.
