So, is there any chance that rooting could cause a change to how the hardware works? I am asking because I just returned a Gnex that had terrible signal quality and got another one. The first one I rooted before I ever used it; now looking back I'm wondering if I screwed it up while rooting. I want to root the new one, but I haven't yet took it to work to see if it's better than the first. Anyway, just trying to find out if rooting the first one screwed it up. BTW, I wasn't running a custom ROM just stock, and I used WUG's root tool. Thanks.
