    A lot of people tend to blame rooting for their phone issues. Rooting actually doesn't modify that much, just adds an app to /system/app and a few other files in the system. The rooting files don't affect the network. Sorry I couldn't help more, but try a data wipe?

    I'm not familiar with the Sony xperia, but rooting alone, at least for the Droid phones such as the Droid 1, Droid 2, Droid X, etc... typically doesn't cause much damage (if any).... to mirror what has already been said.

    However, root privileges do allow you to modify/delete/screw up system files...which CAN do serious and irreversible damage.

    What exactly did you do to cause your phone to have these problems? What process (exactly...was there a guide you followed? ...link??) did you use to root your phone?

    The more information about how you got to where you are now will help us help you figure it out :)

    I'm trying to root my Rezound and I'm having problems. Using the guides in the development section I got the bootloader unlocked. I flashed Amon Ra 3.14 recovery. Now the hboot screen says tampered above unlocked. Since I'm on an ICS leak I downloaded supersu from the play store. I tried to flash the binary the normal way since I don't have the clockworkmod or tarp on the phone, but needless to say it won't work. Any suggestions?

    First off, you have "Tampered" because you actually FLASHED a recovery, which is not necessary in anyway, shape, or form... If you have read deeper and done some research than you would learn that Tampered comes from flashing custom recovery and is completely normal but unnecessary, using "fastboot boot recovery.img" when needed prevents the Tampered flag and eliminates the need for separate flashing of boot.img files when flashing custom ROMS.

    Second off, Amon Ra is no longer a recommended recovery to use on the Rez, TWRP 2.6.3.0 is the current and most recommended recovery out there, it can be found here: Goo.im Downloads - Browsing vigor or with GooManager after rooting.

    Third, root should be achieved using SuperSU, not Superuser, on the Rezound by manually flashing the ZIP file, and cannot be updated or installed from the Play Store until after this step is done. Place the current ZIP file on your SD card from this site: SuperSU Download, boot into TWRP using "fastboot boot recovery.img" and flash the SuperSU.zip file, wipe cache and Dalvik, and reboot and you should be good to go. Then go to the Play Store and update the APK, run the SuperSU manager program and update the binary.

    Fourth, although not mentioned, before starting any changes after unlocking, you should immediately do a complete Nandroid backup and move it off the SD card to safe location, just in case.

    Do you mean open a command prompt and type something similar to this except use twrp recovery?

    Cd \AndroidSDK\platform-tools
    Fastboot flash recovery ..\recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img
    Fastboot reboot-bootloader

    This is the method I used to put Amon Ra recovery on my phone.

    There is no need to FLASH any recovery, once a recovery is flashed TAMPERED will always be there until you lock and RUU, even flashing stock recovery back will not remove the flag. Remember that "Tampered" doesn't really do anything, it is just a flag that says you have modified the phone and if you sent it in for warranty replacement, they could potentially reject it and charge you full retail if the flag is set. Tampered by itself is not an issue. Although seeings as you have already flashed a custom recovery, flashing the new one is acceptable, just remember if you flash a custom ROM that you must extract the boot.img file and flash it manually from the PC as well.

    The better way to use a custom recovery is to BOOT it from a PC... and you can boot any recovery with any recovery installed (even stock) using this method as long as you are unlocked.

    Cd \AndroidSDK\platform-tools
    fastboot boot recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img (or whatever the img file is for the recovery you are using)

    I have also found it is easier and takes much less space to use mini-adb, it has the bare minimum stuff you need to flash ROMs/recovery in about 450k (yes, that is kilobytes). so I do it like this...

    CMD window...

    cd \mini-adb
    fastboot devices (just to make sure it is seen by fastboot)
    fastboot boot twrp263\recovery.img

    wait a few seconds and TWRP is loaded into RAM and executed, in a psuedo S-OFF mode, which allows all functions of recovery to be used including flashing ROMs without the need to seperately flash the boot.img.

    I really like this method of rooting, just substitute the current TWRP and SuperSU ZIP file for the Superuser and Amon Ra noted in the post I linked to using the temporary recovery method in the post (read thoroughly).

    Most posts for rooting are old and haven't been updated in a while, so you will see references to old files, many of which are not recommended anymore like Amon Ra and Superuser.

    This isn't something that is obvious to a new rooter on the Rez, and nothing in the older posts is unrecoverable from or a deal breaker moving forward, so don't worry... it will all come in time.
