Just to know....

Hye... I'm a new member in this forum....:smileygrin:


Just want to know, if we make a root to sony xperia, what will happen exactly... Yeah, I see many people said that it will hack the phone, so if we do so, like we have void our warranty to our phone right?


I just want other opinion, should we root the phone because some people said that it will make the phone running faster...Thinking Face Tq...Slightly smiling Face

Re: Just to know....

you are not doing anything wrong, the only thing you are doing is to have lets say "administrator" access to your phone, so you can install other apps and manage your phone

Re: Just to know....

rooting or flashing other software to your phone will void your warranty unless you return it to its original firmware unroot state

Re: Just to know....

thanks for your action...


But, i also want to know... You said that our warranty will void but if we use recovery, it will give our phone to original state back if we restore it right? Correct me if i'm wrong...


Also, can my X8 doing it, because the link below the one you gave it to me, it said boost for xperia X10... Tq...
