It is not built into Android, but is built into the bootloader. Not all Android devices have it. As said by @GiantTree, the easiest way is to boot into the bootloader and checking the screen output. 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 ...

You could use SuperLockLite Secure Kiosk if you have Samsung device. Have a look at this free app, it does not require rooting of phone.

You should make a backup and reflash a stock ROM for your ROM or flash a different recovery for your phone. Also take a look at these sites. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2426426 http://forums.androidcentral.com/general-help-how/369146-only-boots-into-recovery-mode.html http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1794153

A bit of googling indicates that several people have had to build fastboot specifically to work with this device. I found this one for Linux (last post) and have verified that it runs and isn't malicious: https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/494961

You should simply just be able to uninstall SuperSU as you would any app via your apps viewer. If I were you I would avoid using KingoRoot, I have heard some poor rumors about it. Try Re-rooting the device using something like towelroot, afterwords you would then install SuperSU from the appstore, allowing you to give apps superuser permission.

Try using towelroot to root the device. I've never had trouble with any of geohot's apps.

Hopefully I don't get burned too badly for this, but I thought I would share this info for people who haven't rooted/unlocked their phones lately (or never have). In order to root one must unlock first; this functionality is provided in Wug's rootkit as well as the rooting function. I was trying to mod my phone as little as possible, and I was told by ...

I'll just quote Elluel on XDA: Don't bother messing with reverting everything just to update, it is extremely unlikely to work since as of Lollipop Google has changed the OTA method to check the sum of the entire partition rather than only what it cares about.

You need the binary image of recovery and ROM Now start in fastboot mode Flash the recovery Then flash the ROM The recovery and ROM can found on manufacturer's website.

The system of the s5, also it is a note 3? Boot your phone into recovery mode (youtube how to do this for your specific model) Assuming there is no custom recovery installed, wipe the phone to factory settings and it should remove the root and revert the phone to stock. Alternatively, you could add a custom recovery to it, and flash a new ROM

I used towelroot to root my phone when I was still on a stock ROM. It worked well. There are many other alternatives available as well. I've had no problems with it, and it seems to be what I would consider to be the "safest" as it was designed by geohot, and I've used many of his products in the past.

Alright, so I found the solution and it was all to do with my own incompetence. I was flashing on the wrong recovery, instead of the recovery for the Xperia z2 I was putting on the Z2 tablet recovery. Hence why the recovery mode was detecting "Castor" instead of "Sirius". Flashing on the right recovery immediately solved my flashing problem and now I'm ...

Putting in the SIM will not hurt your phone at all. Even if you don't have the unlock code, your phone will be fine. The unlock code just allows the phone to be able to read the SIM of the other carrier. You do not need to unroot, nor do you need to do anything beyond entering the unlock code. T-Mobile is a great carrier when it comes to giving customers ...

Custom ROMs (the unofficial ROMs made by the community) are usually mostly made for popular phones (there are usually more developers), so obscure OEMs like Micromax usually don't get custom ROM ports.

It looks like you are trying to install CyanogenMod 12 custom ROM using the built-in "3e" recovery. This will not work, as the stock recovery only allows updates that are signed by keys only known to your carrier, manufacturer (Samsung in this case) or Google themselves. You will first need to find anf install a custom recovery image that is built ...

in my experience the phone worked really well except for the camera. To take photos I used Google stock camera, shots usually came out distorted (HDR unusable) and except when in perfect light conditions photos where bad, also audio recording of any kind (voice or video) was impossible to achieve.

Ok, I searched for it a lot, tried everything and here is the final solution: The propper rooting tool for ASUS tablets that use a x86 processor is "RootZenFone", the old fashioned way "fastboot oem unlock" and replacing the the recovery with something else DOES NOT WORK (As the time being). If you have bricked your tablet (as I did!) you can perform a ...

This is because most stock systems will flash the stock recovery on boot and/or your bootloader is locked (and prevents writing to safe partitions).
