OK, I used this, and everything appears to have gone fine. I have root now. Curious though, when it booted back up, nothing appears to have changed, except superuser is there now. I thought it would have reset the whole phone back to factory new.
So you are saying that my installed apps, google account info, settings, wallpaper, widgets and everything will remain the same! Even though this is the whole Rom?
I have a question, how do we know if we tripped the counter? I used ODIN to flash Clockword.tar and then I went into Clockwork to flash Superuser and flash a Stock T-Mobile ROM from Whitehawk. Once I booted i downloaded busybox and installed it to complete the rooting process. I never seen any warning triangles, the only thing I worried about was flashing the custom recovery in download moad, but its not a ROM so it should not have tripped the counter and any ROM flashed I have done, all have been in Clockwork MOD Recovery, never in download mode through ODIN
you tripped your counter. luckily they no longer have the ugly triangle but if you boot to download mode you see a custom counter there. Your counter is at least at 1.
Goto Download mode:volume down+home+power button. Release power button when phone start booting. Press volume up at Triangle warning screen to continue. You'll see your Binary flash counter here.
Mine is at 1 after flashing clockwork.tar via Odin. Oh well wait for someone smarter than me to figure out how to reset the counter.

Yea, I def saw the one, and it's eating at me, although im glad their is no warning triangle and it doesn't effect the phones performance, so Im hoping for a reset app to get updated on the market to support the T999....I WANT IT GONE LOL
Dang, I wish I was patient enough to wait for this method. I rooted only a week ago lol. I hope there will be a method to reset counter just in case, but from what I read the news doesn't sound too good about it as it sounds too difficult for the developer and Samsung may develop ways to make it harder.
