my girlfriends sister is asking me to root her phone because she is sick of how laggy and twitchy stock is. only problem i have with it is if i do it and say she breaks her phone will she be able to claim insurance? or will the insurance company not allow it? i know it voids the warranty but her phone i believe is one of the more better made so warranty wont really be a problem.
 
Breaks it as in a truck ran over it and its completely trashed there's no way they can repair it?

If it breaks, SBF/unroot, hooray no more root. Should solve any problems with insurance.
 
being rooted voids insurance? and i mean like say she drops it getting out of the car and the screens cracked or something that is worthy of an insurance claim rather than a warranty claim
 
as long as you unroot it before you send it back.

just tell your girl to be careful with it
 
Warranty and insurance are two very different things. The insurance company doesn't care about the software, just that you pay the co-pay. The warranty is voided by rooting; this means Motorola/Verizon won't take the phone back with it rooted.
 
Point her at this forum, in particular at my n00b thread and at the root FRG22D thread. If she wants to go through with it, help her, and let her know about the guys with the green names and lightbulbs. :) If she wants root that bad she can have it, but she'll have to earn it. ;)

eh ill explain to her the benefits and the risk of rooting and flashing roms. shes not much of a researcher so she wouldnt really benefit from this forum. she's only 13 years old lol.
