    I'd like to root my Razr and remove all the crapware. Will doing so help to improve the performance and/or battery life? The words 'void warranty' give me cold sweats however. If you root, and something happens to the phone and you need to get a warranty replacement, will they be able to tell its been rooted, even if you unroot? Anyone have any experience or knowledge on getting a warranty replacement on a phone that has been rooted?

    Hell I've returned rooted phones with no problem. If you unroot you'll be fine.

    In my case I had thunderbolt 11 months. About 9 of that was rooted. I woke up one morning to a completely dead phone. Itnhad been working when it went on the charger.

    In my case I could not have unrooted if I wanted to. They sent warranty replacement. I sent dead tbolt back, no problem with the exchange.

    Yes, battery is better after root, much better. Its easy to root, and hard to fully brick your phone. Just follow the instructions. I liked to read them a few times first. Its a little more difficult to install roms, But at first you could try rooting and then getting an app to freeze unneeded apps to improve the phones performance and battery, and then when comfortable, install new roms. But dont be afraid to root. If it seems too difficult, dont do it.

    I rooted my Maxx for the first time this weekend using the
    1.81 utility, it took less than 3 minutes and worked flawlessly. This with the .215 leak too.

    People who brick they're phones by rooting and messing with them, and not even trying to recover them are exactly the reason why carriers are against rooting. 99 percent of the time you can recover a bricked phone

    Eh. I'm partial on I'd that's really want is is.

    People have reported it saying 1/1 or 0/1 even though they have never rooted.

    Also they can't deny your warranty for simply rooting, there are laws on place that prohibit companies from doing things like that.

    They would actually have to prove that by you rooting your phone it caused the issue you are requesting warranty work for, and if it's something hardware like a broken headphone jack then there will be no way for them to prove rooting was the sole cause of the issue, because rooting has nothing to do with hardware issues 90 percent of the time.

    it is a somewhat new thing and we dont know much about it yet. i doubt the guy at the Verizon store eve knows it exists. i believe it is the early stages of something bigger honestly. they may initially take it back. but once they send it off to the factory, then it may be discovered that it has been rooted, they forward that info to Big red, and they end up charging you account for the whole price. it is not under of, it has happened. just a forewarning that's all.
