Since I'm reading about hiccoughs, I see no way to reset the flash counter, and my warranty has not expired, I'm waiting a little longer to root. You'll have to decide your own level of involvement in Project Mayhem.
I would second this. These are my three requirements before I root a phone. As it is, I am already having to return a SGS4 which had some issues. As I was on the phone with tmobile, my one thought was that I was grateful it was under warranty and I did nothing to void the warranty.
