A lot of the codebase has changed, including pretty much all the important functions, so even if your device is not new with this update, please do re-test and report issues should there be any.
Support has been added for the Note 8.0 family of devices (GT-N51xx).
Support has been updated for these Qualcomm-based SGS4 models: International/I9505, Sprint/L720, T-Mobile/M919, USCC/R970, Canadian/I337M. This uses a different method and order of things as usual, and so far seems to work, but there has only been limited testing. Be sure to report issues to the XDA thread. As with all newer devices, the counter will stay at least 1 if you're not using a stock kernel/recovery.
The AT&T and VZW SGS4 models are not specifically supported as their bootloader lock and patch are not really compatible with Triangle Away's way of doing things. However, if you have stock kernel and stock recovery, and you have the periodic system modified reset option enabled, and you wait a few minutes, and reboot into download mode, then back to Android again, and then use the reset feature, it might work.
There is still no support for the GT-I9500 Exynos5-based SGS4 but I hope to have that next week.
There's a new feature called periodic system modified reset, which is enabled by default, and helps in keeping the system status on official in the bootloader (only). It has no effect on the system status under Settings.
Discussion thread on XDA-Developers:
Restructured detect and reset code
Fixed possible crash-at-launch
Improved "system modified" patch
Added periodic system modified reset service
Added option to choose normal or download mode reboot in special boot mode
New reset method for Qualcomm-based S4 family of devices

Thanks for all your work, excellent, as usual. Thanks.
Thanks for this. Waiting the i9500 version to buy.
was hoping the update would work on my current SGS3 Rom (TW) I'm using. Supposedly stock kernel but still flips counter on reboot. Nice to see all the new devices updated.
Brillant work Chainfire, and thank you for your wonderful work on Triangle Away and CF Autoroot.
Thanks chainfire. I just just updated ta. The initial setup looks very nice and works well on the sgh-m919.
Big thanks. Awesome job
no love for AT&T S4 (i337)?
Opps sorry...apparently not
Thanks for the update Chainfire! My SGH-M919 is officially Official.
Confirmed working on Canadian SGS4 (SGH-I337M). Thank you and I will send another donation your way... :-)
Keep up the good work, you are a genious!
Do I need this for my n7? (Noob)
Grr. Broke System Status Normal using the tracker enabling feature. Otherwise gj
+Chainfire Regret to inform you of a WiFi issue with the Canadian SGS4 (SGH-I337M): Noticed that the region selection is Europe instead of Canada/Taiwan and, although the correct region can be selected, it will revert to Europe upon exiting the Advanced section of the WiFi menu. A factory reset resolved the issue. I installed Triangle Away once again and confirmed that clearing the counter is the cause of the WiFi issue. Suspect the region selection; but, may be otherwise as there is no MAC address displayed and WiFi cannot be turned on. Was not near WiFi when I cleared the counter; so, only noticed this issue later. At least my counter is cleared... :-P
Triangle Away updated to 2.96! However not via Play Store. Please update the Play Store version.
Hope you make it for the i9500. So fan of your work.
+Chainfire Please update the Play Store version to 2.96 you offer on xda forum!
really appreciate all of your work! thank you, and of course amazing job
Thanks, Please give GT-i9500 Some love
Great job, thank you
Just wondering if there will be an update to address the issues with the MF9 OTA? I do so appreciate your outstanding products and have purchased the latest SuperSU Pro app and also Triangle Away (even though I was not aware of the MF9 issue). Thank you also for the incredibly simple to use [SPH-L720] CF-Auto-Root.
