Yes but ONLY if you remove the usb while device is OFF!!!
Ok, that I haven't done after I got root working the first time, at least as far as I can remember. I probably removed it sometime during first tries since my device never detected the USB (before I learned how to do it), but that should be safe I guess.
Did you disable OTN Support ?
With EVERY update root becomes less and less stable and finally stops working
The only thing I disabled are automatic updates in normal setting - there's a new version (1018) available (has been all along since I bought this 2nd hand device) which hasn't been installed. If there's some other setting in some "hidden system menu" I haven't touched it.
Is that important - I thought the most important was to not get the latest firmware?
I kind of want to try 1018 in case my issues remains (mainly that wifi is lost - reuqires reboot to get it up again). So far root works on all known versions or?
The other issue I have is that pictures from Apps using CImageViewer looks weird. It seems CImageViewer isn't really supported by 2013 - so I'll first check if it helps to use recommended APIs for that issue.
- also with example App from Samsung pictiures gets screwed up - but I'm pretty sure I noticed this before I rooted.
