Convince me to root my inc 2 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Well alot of people don't think stock is enough.
Sure your phone is plenty fast but their derivative of Android is not perfectly.
For regular phones it does help consisting of the latest version of Android.

For the Galaxy Nexus they have tweaks that can make the phone better like enhanced kernel and other hacks.


As for ROMs I currently use a modified version of stock for my X10 but for my Optimus One it has a better ROM by using CM7.
It all depends on what features they provide as one will probably strike more towards your liking.

"The Samsung Galaxy S II contains an internal flash counter which is incremented each time a non-stock binary (kernel/rom) is flashed from a computer using Odin or Heimdall. (Using the new Mobile Odin on your phone does not increment the flash counter.) The purpose of the flash counter is believed to be to allow Samsung and or AT&T technicians to detect if the phone has a voided warranty through flashing non-stock firmware. The first time the flash counter is activated, the phone also displays a warning screen on boot up with a yellow warning triangle containing an exclamation point. The warning screen also contains the i9100 logo. (Evidently, Samsung did not change the warning screen from the International version of the Galaxy S II for the AT&T version.) Some rooting methods require that a non-stock kernel be flashed before rooting can be accomplished. So rooting and flashing custom software can both cause the dreaded yellow triangle, and increment the flash counter."
"Additionally, there have been rumors that there is a secondary counter hidden in the code of the Galaxy S II which increments each time the primary flash counter is reset to zero. This rumor was either started or strengthened over in the i9100 forums by Chainfire. He never did find any code, and later said he was not fully convinced there ever was any code. But the rumor has already had some discussion in these At&T forums, so it's worth mentioning. My opinion is that a secondary counter doesn't exist, but if it does, this would be an additional reason for this guide."

Yeah, but it doesn't count when flashing through CWM, which is the main way of flashing. You use mobile odin to flash a custom kernal with CWM, and then everything else through CWM.

Also, the flash counter doesn't count how many times you've rooted, just how many times a custom kernal has been flashed through odin on your computer. That's why you use mobile odin on your phone, and it bypasses the counter.
