No It doesn't wipe data, if you got rooted stock It should be fine. Never the less a backup and a wipe is recommended.

1- Yes
2- you can flash any recovery you wish, but of course it will trigger the binary count if you wish to remove the binary count you must flash this package from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2588557 and then run triangle away.

I'm a bit lost in all those firmware versions

I'm trying to update my girlfriend's note2 to 4.3

Here is her phone's info :

Baseband : N7100XXDME4
Version number : JZ054.N7100XXDME6
CSC : N7100XADME2

No recovery installed, and counter still at 0

Can I flash your version safely from her version ?

I will give a try, but my priority is to make it prerooted like a did before but on 4.3 the root gets disabled at first boot, so far.
Now that you are on 4.3 you can install a 4.3 deodexed rom via custom recovery or mobile odin, there is 2 such rooms in the development treads.

Everything went ok with the upgrading, except that Triangle Away not seem to work anymore?
I have run version 3.10 + unfreezed the sysscope file in Titanium B, but I'm still "custom".
Maybe it doesn't work when I have used the Kingo root? Do you have any advice..?
Regards

I heard many comments about Mobile Odin not working with 4.3
Has anyone successfuly flashed this?

I have Mobile Odin Pro and 4.1.2
My phone is rooted but with a stock Samsung ROM.

Wondering if 4.1.2>4.3 will go smoothly with Mobile Odin and this ROM, keeping root. Anyone?

Did it all, in the exact order. Still custom. What gives?
With 4.1.2 it worked fine, but I used CF autoroot then.
Thanx for trying to help.

    ... a new app what makes knox 0

    FYI: There is no way back to 0 .. :angel:

    The “KNOX Warranty Void” bit (or simply KNOX bit) is used to detect if a non-KNOX kernel has been loaded on the device.
    It is a one-time programmable bit in e-fuse, which can only be turned from “0” to “1” (i.e. burned).
    If a non-KNOX boot loader or kernel has been put on the device, KNOX can no longer guarantee the security of the KNOX Container.
    As a result, this KNOX bit will be burned to “1”, indicating that this device can no longer use the KNOX Container service.

    Hi, I was on 4.1.2 and flashed the package but I forgot to factory reset the phone before. Nevertheless flashing with Odin went right, it's all running OK, I'm on 4.3, all my settings and apps were kept, I have a right IMEI and of course I lost root. But should I reset the phone to factory reset or it's not necessary?

    Thanks a lot man!

    If all is working fine then you don't need to reset.
