Remove Triangle & Reset Flash Counter on Android 4.0 (ICS)

Chainfire, a very well known developer from XDA developer forum has come up with a new application that resets the flash counter and triangle on ICS (Android 4.0) builds. You can download the application TriangleAway from the official thread of the application. Following are the lines are from the developer:

The flash counter and triangle state had to be stored somewhere. Everybody knew that. Guesses have been made in the past where it could be, and I have personally compared the raw flash disk contents between different amount of custom flashes in the past, unable to find any differences. You can dump and compare the entire /dev/block/mmcblk0 and you won’t find a difference (you’ll find a few unallocated and unused gaps, though).
The solution comes with the new kernel uses by ICS builds. The flash disk actually has two hidden boot partitions, /dev/block/mmcblk0boot0 and /dev/block/mmcblk0boot1 . The MMC driver in the kernels used for Gingerbread did not present these partitions in the past, the MMC driver in the ICS kernel does.

THIS IS A DANGEROUS OPERATION AND COULD POTENTIALLY BRICK YOUR DEVICE. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. A USB JIG IS PREFERRED IF YOU HAVE ONE. CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK THE INFORMATION UNDER “CURRENT STATUS” IS CORRECT BEFORE RESETTING THE COUNTER !
