After reading TC's post I managed to find a link for the old ICS firmware for you if you need it. Seems so long ago now that we all had 4.0.4 yet it was only July last year!
I have used "Triangle Away" many times and I can confirm that it definetly resets the counter, and if it does not work on the latest firmwares then you can easily use "Odin" to install an older but official firmware for your region and then use "Triangle Away" to reset the counter and then use "Mobile Odin", that does not increase the binary counter, and install that same official firmware again but then not enable the option "Enable EverRoot", and then your warranty is back and you will recieve official OTA updates!
I recommend you first find an official firmware for your region and download it to your computer before you start testing custom firmwares... just in case you need to use Odin...

Could post a link with some info I can read, So I can decide If I want to give the reset a try when 4.2.2 or 4.3 comes out officially.

I not 100% sure on that question because it's never bothered me whether the counter is on 1 or 101. I only install new Firmware through Odin.
I use a S3 Mini as a 2nd phone and I just flashed it with firmware from the site I listed earlier to test the theory. After flashing the binary count was still on 0 (zero), so I'm guessing that it's only unofficial firmware that increases the binary counter.

I ask this because I was expecting my count to be higher, and trying to figure out why it's not.
The only thing I did different from you at the beginning of the year was. Do a Kies firmware initialisation.
Anthony, 08 Aug 2013Exactly what makes the count go up?

The binary counter increments by 1 every time you install unofficial firmware. Your phone will only receive 'official update' OTA notifications if the counter is at zero.
It doesn't matter to me because I never use Kies and official firmware is always available earlier from the Samsung servers anyway. Check on:
for the official firmware. That's where I always get mine from now.

But you say yours is at 2.

Explain how I can return to stock ROM to get OTA or kies updates or warranty if I need a rooted phone to install mobile Odin?
Having the phone rooted doesn't prevent the above 3 mentioned from happening?
"Mobile Odin" is not the same as "Odin", and "Mobile Odin" does not increase the binary counter! It is very easy and totally riskfree to root S3, and it is rooting that release the full potential of Android! Warranty... can be made come back by using "Triangle Away" and then use "Mobile Odin" to install any stock firmware from Samsung.
