Brendan:

It'd be simpler to just install a custom rom from xda over GB anyway, which have already dealt with that issue.



in that case, which roms would you recommend? I had heard of the ability to reset the flash counter, are there roms that do that automatically or something?

I was just about to install the latest official ICS rom (LP4), but I'll wait to see what you say.

ADB behaves different on Omega 8 or ICS in general, and seeking any advice on using it.

Under 2.3 I could type from a Windows command shell (actually Console, a friendly command line shell replacement):
adb shell
ls
sd /sdcard
ls

I'd get two lists of files that looked normal.

Now with Omega 8, I get the following:
adb shell
root@android:/ # ls
ls
←[1;34macct←[0m                  ←[1;32minit←[0m                  ←[1;34mres←[0m

root@android:/ # cd /sdcard
cd /sdcard
root@android:/sdcard # ls
ls
ls: can't open '.': Value too large for defined data type
1|root@android:/sdcard #

For the root directory listing it seems some terminal type is expected.  Not sure what the sdcard listing is all about.

Any help much appreciated, I've become rather used to using a shell to get around my S2.

1. What you're seeing there are the ANSI color codes, which is actually cool, provided you use a terminal app that supports it. Most Linux and Mac based terminals support it, not sure about windows. Perhaps you could use Cygwin as a shell inside Console? 

2. Regarding your second case, it's a common user error: the sdcard is located in /mnt/sdcard , and your external would be /mnt/sdcard/external_sd.  Now /sdcard should actually link to /mnt/sdcard, but for some reason it looks like your's isn't.
Is your sdcard mounted? If it is, and you're still getting the error, then you could try fixing it by issuing "ln -s /mnt/sdcard" in the root dir.

Are there no ICS Launchers which do what the GB Launchers do and display the number of missed calls and unread messages on the icon in the dock? Apex and Nova don't appear to, and it's annoying. I guess I could put SPB Shell 3D back on...

Post it as a suggestion on the Apex thread at XDA?  The dev seems quite approachable. . . .

Thanks on the ANSI colour find, I suspected something like that.

On the SDCARD, I think it's the number of files that causes the problem.  sdcard seems to be mounted correctly as I can ls on a subset of files, but the full list of files gives the error.

Perhaps the Omega developer left his prefered setup on the ROM by mistake.  I'll put v9 on tonight and see if anything changes.

Well, unless you have more than 16,384 files in the root folder, I don't see that being an issue. (65,536 for 8.3 filenames).

I'm on Omega 9 right now, having no such issues though. What version of BusyBox are you using? I'm on v1.19.4-cm9. IIRC, there was a bug in one of the versions of busybox which showed this error.

Omega or WanamLite. For resetting the flash counter, you need to use a USB jig or an app called "Triangle Away". Or you can avoid incrementing the counter altogether, by flashing the ROM using Mobile Odin. Of course, you'll have to root your phone first, and if you want to root it without increasing the flash counter, you'll have to use the zergrush exploit. (DarkTremor has written a script for it.)

BusyBox v1.19.3 (2011-11-22 01:37:10 MST)
I assume that's what I got with Omega.

Hmm, I'm not sure how I got the newer busybox.. I remember it was included with something, not sure what. Anyways, I'm uploading it here for your convenience: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8141638/busybox

Just replace your existing binary in /system/xbin

My new battery arrived today from Adriatica, just running down the old battery before I put the new one in. I'll let all know how it performs.

Thanks, but is there any chance what you uploaded was the 1.19.3 version?
The size is 1116332 bytes, exactly the same as my old version, and when I execute it:
/system/xbin/busybox --help
BusyBox v1.19.3 (2011-11-22 01:37:10 MST) multi-call binary.

I'd reccomend the latest mega or wanam ics roms. They have already been fixed to stop the flash counter being changed.

The problem is the new bootloader that comes with the official ICS has been changed by samsung so the flash counter in it cannot be wiped with the usb jig etc. So we have to install the old bootloader to get that back if you want the yellow triangle gone or to return it under warranty.

There are official smasung releases that have also had the bootloader removed in one of the xda threads.
