Motorola Droid :: Rooting With Macbook - Worth The Warranty Void?

Apr 18, 2010

Ok. First things first, I am simply in love with my Droid. I learn new things everyday. For example, yesterday i took a picture on a trip, and on the ride home, went to look at the picture in my gallery, and under the picture it read Dayton, Ohio. It knew where I took the picture!

Anyways enough of my droid love, i've got some questions for you droid gurus.

1. I want to root my phone so badly. Im afraid of it bricking though. But the thing is, ive done a lot of research, and it seems bricking hardly ever happens. I want to overclock and i really want some kick ass ROMS! Should i do on pc or my pro?

2. My screen, when closed, when you tap on the screen near the lower left corner, the screen taps. Like the screen is loose. I wanna take it to verizon. But i wanna root. But i want my warranty still usable.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Killed My Phone - Restore This Phone Back To Its Original State?

Apr 20, 2010

I was trying to root my samsng behold 2 earlier today using the command codes on theunlockr.com. I thought everything was going well as I went all the way to the last step where it rebooted my behold 2. Problem is, the phone kinda just turned off after doing the reboot command and didn't turn back on by itself (I gave it like 10 minutes). I eventually then just turned on the phone manually and noticed that everything was super laggy. Even when I used taskkiller to kill every task minus GDE, it said I only had 38MB ram available. I rebooted my phone a few times and it was laggy everytime so I decided to do a hard reset. The problem is that when I attempted the hard-reset, it will now get stuck on the samsung screen when trying to load up (stayed there for over 30 minutes). I can still enter the phone if I just start it up regularly without trying to hard-reset, but it will continue to be VERY laggy.

Is there anything I can do to restore this phone back to its original state? I was reading about using ODIN to flash it or something, but for some reason my computer doesn't detect my phone when I go into Download mode on startup (it does however detect the usb drivers on my phone once the phone officially startsup into its homepage).

HTC Incredible :: Did Void My Warranty?

Sep 5, 2010

I updated my phone to the 2.2 through a link i found on a thread here. There was no disclaimer on the link saying this will void my warranty, so i went ahead with it. No that I am doing more research, it seems the I might have voided my warranty due to my impatience :/

Can anyone confirm or deny this? If it DOES void my warranty, how does verizon know that I did a downloaded update rather than an OTA update.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: De-brand Warranty Void?

Nov 10, 2010

I briefly spoke to SE UK on the facebook page and asked about de-branding the phone, I was told that was would void my warranty but the only explanation given was that 'thisis classed as tampering. It is also not something we would recommend as this could damage your handset'

I followed up with a couple more questions but have recieved no reply so thought I would bring it over here instead.

First up, de-branding the phone does not involve rooting it so the process of rooting can't be the reason for the void.

I want to know why updating the phone with an official, SE approved update voids the warranty?

I also want to know why Sony themselves don't provide an option of just updating the phone with the generic update instead of making us wait for the networks to release it?

Or is this all simply about money, are Vodafone etc paying SE a healthy amount to not let us de-brand and remove the useless unused app's that they put on?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: When Update To The 2.1 My Warranty Is Void

Oct 28, 2010

My carrier told me my phone comes with the 1 yr warranty from Sony, but once I update with the 2.1 my warranty is void. Even though it is Sony who is putting it out. They said it voids it because that is not the way the phone was sold. I still have 11 1/2 months left on this warranty so I am not sure what to do.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Says My Warranty Is Void By Installing Third Party Software

Feb 9, 2010

I am sorta shocked, only for the fact that he freakd out that I had installed a new custom boot screen and told him that rooting doesn't neccessarily remove anything sprint puts on the phone. I guess more shocked that he knew what it was.

Regardless, if I own the phone, I am going to do what ever hat I want to it even if it voids the warranty because that shouldn't be an issue.

HTC EVO 4G :: Hard Reset Restore Back To Factory Settings?

Aug 3, 2010

It seems a lot of us are having issues after upping to 2.2. Someone suggested hard reset. My question is simple, will hard reset "restore" EVO back to factory settings, AKA 2.1? I mean when you bought the phone, 2.1 is "baked" in the internal memory. When you update to 2.2, will 2.2 also be "baked" in internal memory so that whenever you hard reset you will always go to 2.2 status? I think it is, but please clarify?

HTC EVO 4G :: Rooting - Back Up Factory Settings In Order To Exploit

Nov 4, 2010

I am big with games so I have been wanting to get an overclocking app for the Evo, but all I could find on the Market are apps for the Droid X/2. Is CPUSet the only (or the best) overclocking app for the Evo and what is the max speed you can safely overclock it? I have not rooted my phone, and just learned in order to even overclock it you need to do so. From what I have read on the forums, rooting the phone removes the warrenty. What I have not been able to find is how you back up the factory settings in order to "exploit" this if something happens to the phone in the future. This talks about it a little, but I didn't find any specifics. Quick INTRO TO ROOTING for those new to rooting

Another question I have is how much space do you actually save when it comes to rooting? Some people mainly root just gain complete control of the phone, others to increase/decrease speed and battery life, and some to save space getting rid of things like the Sprint NASCAR app. The Evo has 1G of internal memory, correct? Right now with the different apps I have installed I have 200-250mb free. I never checked what it was out of the box before installing anything, anyone have an answer there? Last question I have is with the different operating systems available. As said in the above thread (link), there are pros and cons with each (Baked, Fresh, etc.). Can anyone tell me of some for each, or is there a thread you can point me to that already does? I could only find info on Cynogon or whatever it's called.

Motorola Droid : Want To Restore Factory Settings / Got Superuser App In Menu

Jan 3, 2010

So I attempted to hack my droid to wifi tether but I ended up getting stuck at one step. I decided to give up so I want to restore my droid to factory settings, but when I rebooted my phone into recovery mode and factory reset, there is a superuser app in the app menu. I think it's factory restoring to a custom image. Is there a way to restore it the way I got it when I walked out of the Verizon store?
