    FYI Triangle Away does not work on the S4 currently and the S4 has a hidden partition that counts how many times there is custom firmware on the phone currently there is no way to reset that count:

    • Thanks for sharing such information, but Nortje there is still a way out, and soon the XDA Developers are gonna come up with 🙂
