    Hi, Jayce
    Does Odin download mode in I9500 has the custom binary counter ?
    My I9100G does record how many times I flash the custom kernel.


  • Derec

    And sorry, there is another question, if I flash custom kernel on my I9500 does it able to get back to stock/Samsung official kernel ?
