As I consider rooting, especially with stable 2.2 ROM's out there and the prospect of 2.3 ROM's, it would be nice for someone to define the risks of rooting. Some questions:
- If rooting voids the warranty, does it present any issues with replacement if necessary with insurance?
- Would replacement through insurance require any delicate handling to avoid denial?
- What is the deductible on the standard $5/mo. Captivate insurance?
- If a Captivate fails for reasons normally covered by the warranty, and the official operating system can not be replaced, is denial automatic?
You ever hear of 1 click root and un-root...well it works..and works well...The risk of rooting your phone...hmmm let me see...well...you can wait and wait and wait some more in hopes that the rumors on top of rumors is true...just so you can wait some more to be able to download another bloat filled locking update...or..you can actually take a risk.....of finding out what the rest of us who decided a while back to stop wishing for something good to happen for our phones and make
something good happen...All it takes is some investment of time to learn how to make it happen
...and being able to follow instructions to a T...
If your willing to invest some time to research what you are undertaking...and be able to follow directions...the returns
to you are pretty frigging amazing...when it comes to your phone...You will get out of it...what you put into it...and you will never be left "wishing " or "waiting patiently " for a update...you will be able to do your own update...whenever the hell you feel like it
Are there risk...sure...like anything worth while in life...there will always be risk...Heck...we take risk everyday we get up and head out the door of our homes and don't think anything about it...
So...ask yourself this...Is it better to learn to become self sufficient...to be able fix things..or change things..to be able to have it you own way
...or just take what they want to give you when they want to give it to you...?
