Hey I did these steps to the T and I am completely stock rom and recovery without root and triangle away worked but I have one problem... okay when you use triangle away it sets your counter back to 0... but when you flash the stock rom via odin doesn't it trip the counter again? now I dont have root anymore and when I go into download mode there is still a yellow triangle. However in settings > about device it no longer says system modified, it says Normal.. Is the triangle in download mode the triangle that alerts Samsung of a hardware flash or is it a warning for us that says not to load one cause its dangerous? Thanks
If you want root and keep your counter at 0, flash this using ODIN: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1771687
Flashing a pure stock ROM that was officially released by Samsung does not trip the counter.
Download mode is suppose to have a little triangle, our devices don't have the triangle that shows it's modified, it's only the counter.
The counter is used by Samsung in case your phone ever gets messed up and you want to send it to warranty, they can void your warranty because the counter has been tripped.
I know that this might see might seem kind of dumb, but I was curious as to times waiting between a copy/paste of your clockwork Mod data. Im moving the whole folder over to my personal hd and its taking for freaking ever. I was curious if this is A. Normal and B. if there is just one simple file i need to back up every time i want to flash a new Rom? Ive already moved my titanium backup over so im set on my apps, but I want to make sure ive got all my bases covered. thanks guys
