Root: Gaining access to the system to gain full control over the $600+ device you just purchased. The equivalent of being an administrator on Windows.
Yet being an admin on Windows doesn’t void any warranties, nor is it frowned upon by officials. So why is rooting?
To all the companies who void warranties because of root. Stop it. Forget the flash counter or the Knox Warranty. If we put the firmware back to stock, it’s stock, enough said.
To Verizon, ATT, Sprint and any carrier who wants their devices bootloader locked, you suck. You have no legitimate reason for this. None. Stop doing it.
Root and unlocked bootloaders for all who want them.
