To make it abundantly clear, since I had this exact same problem, you must unzip and zip the package back up using the same method used to create the zip file, which uses no compression(!). In my case, I was on linux, and used ubuntu's Archive Manager application to view the contents of the archive. I then found the file causing the issue in ...

I have found sammobile.com a very useful site for finding firmware for samsung devices. I don't think there is an official download site. Here is the firmware for SGH-M919 I have had the same issue before. Just trying the same process again fixed it for me. You can try wiping your cache and dalvik cache but I am not sure if that will make a difference. Then ...

Asus devices in general, don't have any such counter. Samsung uses a flash counter or the Knox counter, which is triggered when any changes are made to the ...
