    Default Re: what is rooting.

    Rooting will ONLY damage your phone if you don't properly take the time to educate yourself with the associated rooting terminology, apps and methods used to unlock/root your device.

    Before you ask, will rooting void your warranty? Yes but only while its in the rooted state. That is why there is always a return to stock method in the event you just don't want to be rooted anymore or you need to have your device serviced/warrantied.

    I can't stress the importance of properly educating yourself before diving in. After all its a couple hundred dollar device in your hand, so you should be well aware of what and how your doing things before just taking a blind leap and then something goes wrong and you come running for help.

    Good luck!

    Like Paul627g said above, it can void the warranty. Depending on your device rooting can be pretty easy or quite daunting. I would highly recommend looking up not only how to root, but how to unroot, and common troubleshooting steps.

    Rooting does open many more doors to options you can only dream of....
