    Default Is it safe to buy a used rooted lg gpad 8.3 off eBay?

    I see someone is selling a used one rooted with CM11 installed. Got me interested since apparently new egg is now out of stock

    It might be safe but it is equally possible that it is bricked and unusable but if it is you can fairly easily get your money back.

    Just bought it. The seller is from XDA apparently.

    I wish you luck. I have bought lots of things from Ebay and only had a handful of issues but never lost money.

    Never lost money off eBay either and like you have bought lots of stuff. I look at it this way at least now I don't have to screw around rooting especially since I rarely use a PC anymore

    Well finally got that rooted GPad from eBay. Was broke on arrival. Contacted the seller and he refunded my $200 and apologized. I'll wait for a new egg sale to buy another.
