Hi everyone,

I have a Galaxy S3 LTE from T-Mobile (SGH-T999L) and I rooted it and tried to install a custom rom. However it didn't work and then I installed the stock rom. Now I want to reset the restore counter. With the Triangle Away. However, I though it needs root. So I don't want to root it and then reset the counter. Basically can someone just help me completely restore it to stock so there are no signs of rooting or modding. I need to send it to samsung. Please help!

Thank You! :fingers-crossed:

Counter only increases when you flash non official firmware with odin. (Except for root66). Itll also retrip to 1 if you have a custom recovery or kernel installed. You are talking bout the binary counter, not the warranty bit, right?

Wait. What the warranty bit? Is that something that will stop me from having samsung fix my phone. Because in download mode it says Warranty Bit is 1.

Yup, I'm afraid your warranty is void. You can try to send it in. In the Note3 forums there are several repirts of sending it in with the warranty bit tripped and still getting it serviced or replaced. No guarantees though.
