How to use USB jig on Galaxy S2 i9100 to reset Custom binary download counter/remove yellow triangle

Finally I was able to get one. Yes I am talking about USB Jig for Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100. With this USB Jig you can reset the custom binary counter to zero and also removes the yellow triangle on start up if you have rooted your device. This process is very simple and hardly takes a minutes.


How to reset custom Binary counter on Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 using USB Jig
  • Turn off your phone completely and remove the battery for 10-15 seconds
  • Put the battery back but don't switch on the device
  • Plug the USB Jig to Micro USB port of your phone
  • Wait for around 2-3 seconds
  • You phone screen will show "ERASING DOWNLOAD INFORMATION SUCCEEDED" in ODIN mode and Custom Binary Download : No

Now you can remove the battery and restart the phone.You will also notice that the yellow triangle which comes at start-up is gone now.

Refer to the video below for full procedures. You tube link

** If your jig doesn`t work that may be issue of new bootloader.. To solve this download old bootloader file  ( from XDA Goto Forum page and download Old bootloader )and unzip it then flash the old firmware on PDA tab using ODIN.. Then you USB Jig **

    This means your current ROM doesnt support JIG.. Actually problem is with the new bootloader. But dont worry, Download a firmware with old bootloaded to reset the counter. I will help you if you let me know which firmware your want exactly

  22. My Jig isn't working either with criskelo rom, Gingerbread 2.3.6.

    So after flashing an old boatloader I can remove the triangle.
    But when I install Criskelo's rom again the triangle will be back again?
    Does this mean you can't run a new rom without the triangle?

    1. why you flash custom ROM again after removing triangle by using old bootloader.

      yes... you have to remove yellow triangle everytime you flash a custom ROM or root the phone

  23. Hey,

    I have a S2 on 2.3.6. It suddenly got bricked and I tried to use the jig I bought from Amazon to bring it to DL mode. However, it didn't work at all and when I plug the jig in, the black screen of death appears as before.

    Please help me!
