    I got my phone rooted last night and now im not keen on it. Each time I switch it on there is a yellow triangle ,even tho I got told not to worry about it. If i was to sell it i wouldn't be able to with that showing. Is there a way to revert it back to factory. I'm not a phone geek and I dont like the layout of it.
    I lost all my contacts cos they didn't sync with Google either.


    Help appreciated..

    I see there's even an app to do the job for you :)

    Edit: oops, I see you already found it.

    hey mate. The yellow triangle is normal on samsungs, dont worry. To go back to normal just use triangle away while rooted then flash stock firmware to remove root.
    What phone is it? What android version are you on?
    Paying for TA is the only way i know of to reset the flash counter btw. If you arent willing to pay that small price to the developer who probably made it possible to root your phone in the 1st place then theres nothing we can do to help :)

    The best source of information on un-root-ing is in the All Things Root sub-forum of the forum dedicated to your phone. The methods vary from one model to another.

    If you identify the model of phone and the carrier you are using (something like Samsung Galarza S2 on T-Mobile) ... we can move this thread to the appropriate location.

    (The model can usually be found in Settings | About phone | Model number. If it has a removable battery many times there is a sticker under the battery with the information.

    You don't need Triangle away. You can also clear the flash counter with a jig. They are easy enough to make or cheap on Amazon.

    Samsung Jig

    You can see how to make your own in this post.

    It's cheap, it's Christmas. Don't be a Scrooge :)

    But if you try it and find it's no use, uninstall it within 15 minutes of buying it and you won't be charged for it.

    I don't see how you can lose.

    They also reset the flash counter. Safer than TA, too.

    While I am a big fan of Chainfire's work and support him when I have the chance, right there on the app description it states

    Not that I've seen, but they are only for Samsung phones. The official jig will bridge pin 4 and 5 with 301k resistance while the homemade one is only 300k, but I never had a problem with my homemade one not booting a device into download mode.

    Just buy Triangle away, it's cheap and very simple to use. I've never had any problems using it.

    Cool. Thats gona be one of my new years resolutions lol. To make myself a jig BEFORE i need it. I do stupid things like flash experimental roms that have come straight from a dudes computer who doesnt own my device and needs a tester to see if it boots lol. So far ive always been able to save myself but i know the day will come when i really need a jig :)

    Yeah i dont understand why the OP doesnt want to buy it when you compare it to the price of a repair when your warranty has been voided because of the flash counter ;)

    If you've already got the gear to build one, it should cost under

    i have plenty of old micro usb jacks (samsung chargers fall to pieces in like 3months) and im sure i could find the right resistor (ive been taking electronic things apart since i was 5 lol) :)
    Are the pins that are to be shorted ones that are connected to wires in the charge/data cable?

    What you want is a 301k ohm resitor, but a single 300k should work and 3 x 100k are easier to find. a 5-pack cost me $1.29. Fine point soldering iron, razor knife, good steady hands, burn cream, bandages and earpluugs for anyone within range so they don't learn any new vocabulary. You should be set. ;)

    If I recall from the last cable I dissected, pin 5 is unused and pin 4 may or may not be used depending if it is a data cable or a charge-only cable.

    P.s, if i remember correctly from like 15yrs ago at school, if its 3x 100k resistors, they have to be in series, not parallel?
