How to Make a USB Jig for Epic 4G Touch!

Well, since I bought a new Radio Shack digital soldering station couple weeks back, I figured I would start doing some soldering.  So I made the USB Jig for Epic 4G Touch and Galaxy S2 smartphones, which took me about 15 minutes to make, definitely worth it as you can reset your ODIN download counter, get into download mode on hard brick, and also erase the i9100 boot splash on rooted phones.

This is definitely a cool jig.

I wrote full step-by-step instructions over at Galaxy S2 Root, check it out!

    I can see the usefulness when it removes the triangle but if I unroot to stock my phone and take it back to my carrier does that mean they will still be able to see that I rooted it unless I do this? By the way zedo, you are the man! I’m inspired to go into programming! And have rooted many phones thanks to you! Shout out from covina! You got a friend here
