Some questions about rooting and voiding the warranty?
I broke my Nexus 7 about a week ago and a new one is on it's way. It wasn't really my fault, it was on a table and my friend bumped it. I'd make him pay but he is quite poor and the $270 would affect him much more than me. Anyway, it isn't covered by warranty so I had to get a new one.
I'd like to root it when it arrives since it would let me do more stuff, but I bought the extra warranty that covers drops and whatnot so I wouldn't have to spend another $270 in the case this new one gets damaged. If I were to root it, I assume it would render that warranty useless. Is it possible to "unroot" it, so it appears as if it was never rooted if I damage it? I know you can do this with Apple products. my cousin jailbroke his iPhone and the battery stopped working a few months later. He just restored it and Apple fixed it for free.
So yeah, is that possible? I am fairly careful with my devices, prior to this I have never broken anything. I don't want to root it and void my warranty permanently. I am likely being over-careful since it probably won't break again anyway, but still.
EDIT: I guess while I'm here I might as well ask my other question. How high could I overclock it? I've seen people do 1.8GHz but that seems to cause stability issues and heating. Would somewhere around 1.5GHz be good?
Re: Some questions about rooting and voiding the warranty?
Ive seen 2.0 but they mentioned it could actually melt stuff. Ill probably aim for 1.64 myself since theres a guide for that. Im still looking to see if its possible to change the kernel without a custom rom before I do it though because I really dont want to lose my progress thus far. I understand I can root without losing stuff but custom ROMs wipe everything.
