I have only rooted phones that don't have hboot. Or at least I don't think they had it. All I have ever really had to do was just run an app like towel root or any other rooting app that happens to work for the phone I was using it on. And of course if I wanted to get a custom recovery installed to get a better rom.
Hello everyone, my GS2 is hard bricked because I accidentally flashed an I1900 international ROM on my T989 and I chatted with Samsung and they emailed a shipping label and such since it's under warranty. Is there anything I should do to give me added security to them not finding out that my phone was rooted and flashed or can they see that since my phone is hard bricked?
First of all, lets get something straight. Most people use the term "bricked" improperly. A bricked phone means one thing: your phone won't turn on in any way, shape or form, and there's nothing you can do to fix it. It is, for all intents and purposes, as useful as a brick. A phone stuck in a boot loop is not bricked, nor is a phone that boots straight into recovery mode.
I'm new at android, want to ask about rooting. In old days, sometimes when you bought a phone, after a month or more it can do crazy stuff(not response to user commands and etc.), then you give it to warranty service and they fix it(because the user can't do that). In nowadays, what can happen bad to android phone?
Okay, here is the situation: I got my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-I535) a few months ago. I was excited and liked it very much. Eventually, I heard about rooting. After doing a bunch of research, I rooted my phone.
Ok I'm just curious to how many people have bricked their evo v.
I didn't brick mine I'm just curious. ;) I think if you pulled the battery from the phone while it was updating the radios (in the bootloader) it would get bricked. Other than that this phone doesn't have a high chance of getting bricked :D. So.. anyone bricked it ? Hard brick? Soft brick? :)
I currently bricked my phone after the "Rooting" procedure failed, I followed the instructions (Ive done rooting before on my S2) but when it was on the process of rooting it failed and now Im getting the error of "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue.
