  79. Rooting process will break your device’s warranty period. You will not be able to able to claim the company warranty on a rooted device. Rooting an android should be done only by experts . But Android gives you so much than user expects Still dont know why people are crazy for Android rooting . earlier this weekend my Friends screen got blank and when he went to service center , he couldnt get warranty due to the same reason
