    Great forum people. Had a question, I had a rooted phone that wouldn't allow the update. Verizon sent me a new one and the update worked. I did a complete reset and I can't get rid of the super user icon. Can I just send it back with that? Thanks

    With that said, if you claimed it in warranty, you are talking about fraud.

    Have you tried uninstalling it? If the app is on your sd card, a factory reset won't delete it.

    Edit: what jungle king said...

    I didn't uproot it before I reset it. I didn't even think about it. I just called them and told them that my phone wouldn't take the update. I really don't want to take a chance so is there something I can do? I tried unrooting after the fact and that wouldn't work neither.

    Assuming you're in America, they can't charge you anything for rooting your phone. The library of Congress made it legal to get root access to phones. Don't worry about returning a rooted phone.

    When you root your phone, you void the warranty and thus is clearly stated in every thread out there that gives directions for root. If your phone wouldn't update, it was because you choose to mess with it and root and we all take responsibility for our actions. By telling Verizon it just doesn't work and not taking responsibility, you are costing everyone. The more users mess up their phones and then make a false warranty claim for a free replacement, Verizon and Motorola have to pay extra with the cost of shipping, fixing your "broken" device, and overall processing. In the end, how do they recover that cost? By charging all consumers more for their phones. So in the end, we all pay for those that don't follow the rules

    Not true. Yes, it is legal to root but they absolutely can charge you for filing a false claim. Just because it is legal, does not take away from the fact that rooting voids your warranty and if you claim it under warranty, you are saying it broke due to defect. When in reality, you broke it and claiming otherwise is fraud.

    Is it illegal to work on your own car? No of course not. But if you screw something up, you don't expected ford or chevy to fix it under warranty. So why would you think this is any different?

    Wow, thanks for the replies and helpful tips. Now on lecturing, really no need for it. Can it being naive or new to the rooting and unrooting phones but if you think that it makes a difference in what ur paying for a phone is comical. We are overpaying for service as it is and if you think by people replacing a few phones jacks the pricing up its funny. These companies squeeze every penny out of their clients so plz keep useless comments to urself. Thanks

    Talk about nerve. As a noob, you need to check that attitude at the door. You come here asking for help committing fraud and you have the gumption to disrespect me by calling my comments useless? Those were not my opinions....they are facts.

    I was educating you, but kept it respectful. You are lucky i helped at all.

    Edit: removed all help from posts. It doesn't pay to assist some users.

    Ok guys....let's not get into a pissing match. Not everyone has the same opinion on things and there's no need to get upset if yours doesn't match another's. So stop it before it starts gentlemen.
