I tried flashing with odin following the procedure on the video and with heimdall also, but when I boot in the recovery there is the stock one...both odin and heimdall say the flash is successful and the binary count increases...I also of course tried downloading the recovery again...any suggestions?
heimdall flash --recovery recovery.img
There is still no clean return-to-stock package available for the N8013: Could someone who has installed this recovery and NOT rooted their device or made any other modifications to /system please go into recovery, change the backup format to tar (it's in the backup/restore menu), and do a backup? Then please post system.ext4.tar
That will get us a stock unmodified system (including proper permissions and such), which can then be rooted and flashed in Odin to get stock unmodified kernel/recovery images. Unlike the N8000, the N8013 does not yet have a stock image available anywhere.
Just use this bud:
And remove /system/xbin/su and /system/app/Superuser.apk
Other than those two files, it's completely stock I pulled off my stock N8013.
I could reupload it but it would be the exact same thing as removing the two files.
That does the trick. So far I only saw your N8000 dump. .tar would be preferable due to permissions issues, but that issue is fixable with a little bit of time.
I did the same thing with I777... Right now the only RTS packages I have are rooted ones since it's so easy to remove. I really should reupload 100% clean packages (I used to have them, and then the MegaUpload fiasco killed ALL the damn mirrors and I haven't gotten around to reuploading...)
Edit: Oh, it's a zipped-up .tar - misleading, I usually name those either .tar.7z (using 7-zip to compress) or just .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 (standard compressed tarballs)
I have a few questions about root and I was hoping someone could help. I am fairly new to rooting. I have a galaxy nexus that i use CWM Recovery and have root. I need to root my Note but I am not familiar with the binary counter (all is a little different than the nexus was). If I Flash this CWM recovery and root after will the binary counter increase? is the only way to prevent binary counter to inject root? (all CWM will cause it to increase?)
I know i am a noob but any insight would be greatly appreciated!
