    Would i be able to take my phone back

    I got a d2g a month ago, tried downloading [stuff] today while rooted and kinda [mess]ed it up, now its stuck on a black screen that just says bootloader, would I be able to take it back to them and have them fix it, without them finding out I rooted it or something, so they dont fix it?

    I'm not rooted myself, but from what I've gathered reading threads, you'll probably want to go ahead and try to get it back yourself. I'm sure someone will be along with links by the time I hit submit... lol.

    I think the only way to fix it is some SBF file that hasnt come out yet. Taking it back is my only option

    First of all before rooting it would have been wise to research as much as possible before going hipdeep into something you do not know anything about, second how did u flash ur rom second to fix current situation try to sbf back to stock rom, to do this u will need rsdlite and the sbf, google a tutorial for it don't try to figure it out if that works don't change any stock rom settings, research for three days and night straight or till your eyes bleed and your brain is the size of texas, rooting isn't something to screw around with there are multiple precautions we have taken before flashing roms and changing things, u do know that rooting did infact void your warrenty right? What were your reasons for rooting?

    Please edit the profanity out of your post. There is no SBF for the D2G so you're in trouble at least until one is released. This is why you only void your warranty by rooting if you can afford to lose it.

    I cant fix it untill an sbf comes out for the D2G, and I doubt it voided anything, I can probably take it back to the store, theres no way to tell that I tried to root my phone, im just stuck in this blackscreen with a bunch of letters with nothing saying that I rooted it.

    The fact that you can even bring up the bootloader tells anyone you rooted. (Unless you found the phones internal hardset way which I doubt unless you read about)...

    And the second u root, ur warranty and any carrier support is gone and voided. I kno somewhat of wat I am talking about... but others on here kno a lot more. Id listen to them.

    That's insurance fraud and you just admitted to it in an open forum where Verizon reps are known to frequent. Do not discuss this any further.

    First of all, you took the risk and rooted your phone. Second, you posted on here and I had to edit the swear filter. Third, you're posting in multiple sections. Fourth, if this continues you might be on a vacation with your phone not working from DF.

    Now, yes, you're rooted. Did you do a backup of your ROM after you rooted? If so, you can hold "X" and go into the recovery. You'll have to open up your keypad and hit the "search" and will take you into recovery. You're going to want to wipe to factory defaults. Then when the phone reboots, you'll start over. When things come back from the market, you'll want to re-start the Bootloader, go into recovery and reinstall your backed up ROM. Hope this helped.
