how does one use triangle away? it is an app that resets counter on boot? Is this necessary to use more than once if plan is just to root it? Then can uninstall?

Read the info on the app thread...no, all you nerd to do is use it once. The only time you need to use it again is when you flash something that increases the counter.

this may be a really stupid question, so apologies in advance (first samsung phone, came from moto atrix 4g)

After I run CF-autoroot, and it installs the stock recovery, are there any restrictions on further installing a custom recovery? I wouldn't imagine so, but I don't want to do anything to mess up my 1 hour old phone

Thanks in advance.

No, just remember to do nandroids (backup) all the time before install any mods, roms or themes.

Successfully rooted my SGH-I317!
I ran into no issues along the way. It did take me about 45 seconds though as I read everything twice. Looks like I'm still in noob status.

Thanks OP!

I downloaded CF-Auto-Root-t01tecan-sghi317m.zip

bash-3.2# tar tvf CF-Auto-Root-t0ltecan-sghi317m.tar.md5
-rw-r--r-- 0 apache apache 6115328 7 Nov 19:04 recovery.img
-rw-r--r-- 0 apache apache 14258360 7 Nov 19:04 cache.img

and I did:

bash-3.2# heimdall flash --cache cache.img --recovery recovery.img

I need to redo without cache.img

bash-3.2# heimdall flash --recovery recovery.img

Reboot - the red android icon appears - trying to root ...

Reboot again, nothing happened ... still no root access ...

Am I missing something here? Anyone getting this to work on a Mac?

if I do the root can the store tell as I may try and return for white in 10 days when they get more in stock. Just not liking the Titanium but also cant wait to root
