I have heavily modified the MotoChopper exploit by XDA member drjbliss to handle the new changes to file permissions in JellyBean 4.3+. Because this tool is based on MotoChopper it will likely support the same device list that MotoChopper supports however i have only tested it on the T-mobile T999 & T999L and the i337 .


If you would like to test it on other devices it should be fairly safe to try as it should either work or fail, of course testing anything like this is always at your own risk and i am not liable for any damage to your device, self esteem and so on. If you do test it on your device, please report your results here so that I can try to fine tune it if need be.


For this current version you will have to have TWRP installed on your device.

if it works for you don't forget to hit the thanks button! enjoy.

all instructions on how to use are inside the tool. this is for windows users only.

I do not know but I will ask my friend who used it on his to test, I believe he was using a custom ROM but I will ask and get back to you as soon as I hear from him.

So sorry I need to edit the main post, I have been working on so many different projects, we did not test it on the M919 it was actually tested on the i337. If you are talking about the flash counter though this will not trip the flash counter, however flashing twrp will trip the binary status, and possibly the Knox counter, I need someone to test it, but I can't tell you how to correct it if it does trip it.

i guess what i should say is that while i have not had a confirmed success of fail on the m919 i have provided the tool to a few who have not been kind enough to report its status

No worries. I'm just worried about the KNOX counter.

So now Sammy has a flash counter a Knox counter and a binary status? Next thing you know their entire kernel is going to be some kind of counter.

The funny thing is when they switch to that tizen bs they are probably going to require the phones to root in order to switch like Ubuntu for the phones.

I will put it this way, since I did not take into account Knox being an issue , I will say that yes it will probably trip the Knox counter, but we won't know for sure until someone is willing to try it.
