I dont mind that. In download mode is the counter tripped? Modified status will happen with busy box even. And if you flash pure stock it'll go away. I'm more concerned with the download mode counter.

And can you reset it with the app or will it stay at 1 now that it sees a non stock recovery?

so when you put the recovery on there it went to 1. then you reset it to 0 with the app and it is staying at zero across reboots?
didn't someone mention they the counter wouldn't go to zero for them when they rooted the other method?

Though I haven't tested it, I'm not sure why Odin through virtualization wouldn't work.

Odin works differently than adb, but I'm not sure about heimdall.
