[Q] Rooting P31XX without increasing the custom flash counter
I am currently searching for a method to root the Galaxy Tab 2 7" (Model numbers P3110 and P3100) without increasing the custom binary flash counter. As far as I am informed, if the device can be rooted without touching the counter, mobile odin could flash roms without affecting it either. It comes with a 4.0.4 firmware so hacking via /data/local
is no longer possible.
As an alternateve, if it would be possible to bring CWM to the device without increasing the counter, a rooted rom could be installed via recovery also leaving alone the counter. (This at least works flawlessly with CyanogenMod on my galax s2 ever since.) It seems that the recovery.img for CWM alone could be flashed using the stock recovery from an external sd card when converted to a zip
. Will this increase the counter? There also seems to be something called temporary CWM which is only executed for a single run, not installed permenently. Although I did not find much information and do not know where to get it, maybe this could be more safe?
Or perhaps someone can tell me another way of safely rooting the tab I did not think about.
