Wonder how warranties will come into play now
This is huge. Motorola has the death grip on their devices and here HTC does this....i'm just wondering how they're gonna change their policies regarding the warranty on their products. Definitely gonna turn more heads with this
Stupid qustion for you. Does having an unlocked bootloader make rooting easier?
Thw evil controlling ass carriers probably won't allow this.
The only reason the license says anything about voiding the warranty is because the devlopers are trying to cover their asses, they are worried that if someone roots their phone, and something goes wrong, they will blame the developers.
My best guess will be that they will have a huge disclaimer that says that any irreparable damage done to the device because of rooting, flashing custom ROMs, over/underclocking the processor, etc. will completely void the warranty. It is easy to do ...
