Yes. I believe what I did to get past the Samsung logo was to pull the battery, boot into stock recovery (vol up/home/power) and do a factory reset.

So this supposedly doesn't trip the flash counter. Can I flash it and then run Triangle Away, run the SuperSU Full Unroot, and be completely stock with "no" flash counter and it show official status in download mode? My Note2's antenna/radio or whatever seems messed up, because it can barely pick up a signal, so I want to send it back for another one.

UPDATE:
Confirmed. After trying so many different methods, I gave this a shot. Flashed via Odin, ran triangle away, used full unroot, and now I'm 100% stock with 0 flash counter.

You can just use the stock Odin rom from sammobile.com
If you use this file then just launch supersu after and in settings select full unroot .

Well I am not sure what happened to my device but I just checked Status and it shows Modified. I thought I had checked it before and it showed Stock or whatever.

How do you check for the Trip Counter?

Did you try either doing a factory data reset or flashing the stock tar from sam mobile, after running triangle away and unrooting?

When I did it, I flashed this first, then installed and ran Triangle Away, then using Odin, falshed the stock ROM tar. Then did a factory data reset before sending it in to warranty.

Good Luck

I noticed the same thing on mine recently. I had it all back to a zero'd flash counter, a binary status of normal, and a system status of normal in settings. But something happened along the way, and now I show modifed in settings and for binary status in download mode. Kind of a bummer after having it all cleaned up and fully rooted at one point.

Anyway to check the flash counter, turn your phone off, then hold volume down, the home button and power button all at the same time until the screen comes on with the yellow triangle, then push volume up once.

Yup tried diff ways

1 flashed root injected rom, flashed triangle away, reset counter then after reboot ran superuser did full root then factory reset. Result Modified

2 flashed root injected rom, ran superuser full root then factory reset. Same modified.

3 flashed stock rom root with cf root installed t away, reset counter. Uninstalled t away then superuser to full unroot then factory reset still modified.

All above gives me No binary and Samsung official except for modified at device status.


I will try again with first or second step and will flashed stock rom no root then factory reset after. Will post for result later. Thanks
