Dear Friends

I wonder that if I root my device it's s pen abilities and samsung motion functions will disappear ? Or what's happens when I root my device what will disappear ? Thanks everyone

Best regards

Nothing will disappear. Only thing will change is you will get full control of your device
But before you do anything PL read about counter rise and how to reset it

I did mine using Odin method and rom count is showing 1 now, even with triangle away installed. Can I just redo root using this method? Would it reset the counter back, so I could get OTA updates? Thanks

Make sure you don't have custom kernel or recovery installed otherwise you have to first replace to stock then use triangle away

Thank you.
I'm going to attempt the restoration this weekend.

Going to follow the instructions here to the letter.
Using latest ROM from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1896696

I don't remember what I did last time, but I think it's similar to the latest instructions.
So, the only difference is just the new ROM that will not trigger counter to +1 and ROM status to custom, right?

Root samsung n7100

I have upgraded my already rooted Note 2 to android 4.3. And after that I again tried to root the 4.3 from ODIN, it showed done, but the binary didn't install and the Knox was iritating me every time. So again I rooted my note 2 from ODIN to 4.3 release and my badluck all the previous data is lost.

Now I want to install Echo Rom, can u suggest me what to do. I am a novice.

Post # 2 and 3 of above said thread



---------------------------------------------------------------
This guide basically written when there was only available method to root device was flashing chenglu's recovery, which was causing to raise flash counter 1 even after triangle away. That was due to samsung's bootloader for Note 2 which have autosum check for recovery. So if you are using any custom recovery your flash counter will raise to 1. Also read this if you want to use CWM recovery and want to reset counter at every boot.

Later Chainfire have introduce 'Cf Auto root' and in that case no need to use this tutorial as CF auto root package includes stock recovery.

Still this guide is useful who have flashed CWM and want to move to stock recovery with reseting counter '0'



Here is guide How to reset counter to '0' and keep device rooted

All credits to Chainfire and chenglu, without their amazing tool we can't have this......




-If you have rooted with CWM recovery
- Your device will have CWM recoovery with root access.
- Download this stock recovery OR This latest stock recovery from LL7 which believe to be patched by samsung.
- Flash with PC Odin for PDA tab.
- Reset counter with Triangle away
- Now your counter will be '0' and you will have now stock recovery but root access will be intact
- You will have binnary count '0' but system status still will be 'custom'
- Reboot to recovery, wipe cache and data
(this step is just for keeping status' official '
You can skip if you have too much data, as this status can be achieved even in semibricked condition by wiping from recovery Or by flashing stock rom from download mode. And in hard bricked this status can't be read :p) important thing is to just keep count' 0'.

- You will have binary count '0' and current binary 'official' as well system status 'official'
- with latest bootloader you can't achieve system status 'official' with wipe cache and data too, in that case you may need to reflash stock ROM, reboot normally, play for 10 min and it should be 'official'
