    My own Nexus One of less than 18mnths old got bricked recently. Returned to HTC got a 220 approx repair bill with description that screen was broken. There was no physical damage to the phone. Questioned about this Repairs pointed to the fact they had found malicious software installed. Questioned further they said the reason for costly repairs was that I had rooted the phone. I'm between 2 worlds about this, the lack of developer support from HTC; plus the fact the phone got bricked in the first place!

    Welcome to the forum!

    That being said returning a phone that is unlocked and rooted is never a wise thing to do. There are rare cases that a phone cannot be restored and even more rare with a Nexus or a device with an unlocked bootloaded. Blaming HTC for lack of developer support on a Nexus phone is strange when its a Google Experience device and therefor support comes from Google and is generally superb.

    Anyone who roots their device should be aware that any damage done to the device is on them whether that is physical or software.

    I used AnyRooter to root galaxy and I successed. Have you find the right version suits your Adnroid phone? Or have you follow the right steps to root your Android ?
