Unlocking your device may void all or parts of your warranty. That’s the statement that I get from HTCdev – Unlock Bootloader website when I tried to begin unlock bootloader. Well, you can ignore the may and parts words in that sentence. I double confirmed with HTC Malaysia (when I visited HTC Service Center in Penang). All HTC smartphones (including my HTC One X) warranty will void upon unlock its bootloader. No matter you install custom ROM, root it or leave it with stock ROM. Your HTC smartphone warranty is gone forever…
Unlock HTC smartphones bootloader void warranty
This is a bad move as HTC should mention Unlocking your device will void all of your warranty. Not to use may and parts words. This is a misleading statement because I personally thought that I still can claim warranty if the hardware is faulty and not caused by custom ROM / modification. Well, thanks HTC Malaysia to clean thing up.
To me, it is a big disappointment. Android is an open source platform. And it is made to further improve the overall usability and performance by all 3th party developers. So you don’t need to stick with official ROM while custom ROM can provide better support and features.
Do take note – Unlock HTC smartphones bootloader void warranty!!! What is the point of having 2 years warranty since unlock bootloader void it? In short, stay away from HTC smartphones (unless you are willing to give up the warranty)…
