Rooting is process to unlock the potential Galaxy Note 2 as you can fully control your phone system. But, as I have mentioned before, any changes on the Galaxy Note 2 firmware or stock kernel will increase your phones  flash counter. You can check your Galaxy Note 2 flash counter status on the Downloading Mode.

Unroot Galaxy Note 2 only will unroot your Galaxy Note 2 Android OS but still unable to clear the flash counter or custom binary  download. Previously, I have successfully used Triangle Away to reset my Galaxy s3 flash Counter. So, how about Galaxy Note 2? Some of Galaxy Note 2 users reply  to me that they unable to fully clear or set the custom Binary Download to “0″ and only can reset to  custom Binary Download to  “1″. Yes, the  Triangle Away developer has mentioned that some devices keep resetting the counter to 1.

Here, I have tried and success use Triangle Away to fully reset my rooted Galaxy Note 2 GTN7100 flash Counter and here is the step by step tutorial:

Step 2: Open Triangle Away application and  make sure that Triangle Away application is support your Galaxy Note 2 model. Then choose and press the “Reset Flash Counter”.

Step 3: Now your Galaxy 2 will boot into “ Triangle Away warning page”. Then press volume up button to start Reset Galaxy Note 2 Flash Counter.

Step 4: Galaxy Note 2 will automatically reboot once complete the Flash Counter process.

Step 5: Power Off your Galaxy Note 2.

Step 6: Now you need check to confirm either your Galaxy Note 2 Binary counter was set to zero or not. So, turn your Galaxy Note 2 into Downloading Mode by press Home Button + Volume Down Button + Power Button. 

Example: Previously My Galaxy Note  2 Binary counter  is 2. Then after perform reset binary counter (step 1-step 4) via Triangle Away, my Galaxy Note 2 reset binary

counter change to 1 ( but still can reset to 0).

Step 5: Now you need flash again official  firmware into Galaxy Note 2 . Refer here on how to download Samsung Galaxy Note 2 official firmware.

    Thanks for this I was able to Reset my phone’s flash counter to zero. I’m using a N7100 International version.. A question though, can you please help me out unrooting my phone without triping my flash counter again?. I’m using a stock rom ang stock recovery now. THANKS

    this makes no sense. You are telling someone to root again with the CWM file when the note 2′s will now detect a non-stock recovery upon boot and give a ’1′ on the counter. Please advise.

    I had root my note2 and then reset flash counter use the triangle away only, but I didn’t reflash the official rom. Anyway, it work as the last photo screen. The phone still in root, I went to the system –> update –> it is better than before. Cause before, when I click update. It shows “system modify can not been update”, the update button is work now. But it seems no connect with official server. Any Idea? Do I need update my firmware use “Odin” again??? Or have some way, root and official update together… Pls. teach me… Thanks!
