    But the guy above me says not to do it. Now I'm confused. I watched a few videos. It's just choosing a bunch of options and stuff. But not Nightmare says not to.
    ?
    @Nightmare, why

    From what I heard, you can't receive updates anymore. I'm probably wrong, but that's what I have heard.
    I have a jailbroken iPhone, so I kind of know what this is. It's only worth it if NOT in contract, like a previous user said.

    If you root your phone, you have messed with the software, and now have voided your warranty. If you were to drop and break your phone, you would have to buy an entirely new one. Plus, it's illegal to root phones now.

    In my opinion I never root/jailbreak my phones because it makes it a lot slower and takes up space I could be using but that's just me!

    Go to xda-developers and find your phone and model. On most phones, there is a flash counter that adds up each time you flash stuff to your phone. Kind of like a tattle-tale. If you don't know how to get the counter to zero, your warranty is voided. On my Note 2, I am able to use TriangleAway to reset my flash counter to zero.

    If you root your phone, and you need to take it in for repairs, and there is no "flash counter" on your phone... just do a factory reset on it, and you're safe.

    When I had to take my Note 2 in for a repair, I told them I rooted it and flashed ClockWorkMod Recovery... At&t was fine with it, they don't care. Yes, my phone was under warranty, and the repair cost me nothing.

    Oh yeah, I still receive OTA (over the air) updates... because I'm still using STOCK ROM. Once you flash a custom ROM, you have to wait on the developer of that ROM, to offer a newer version.

    I suggest that you do some research on: ROM's, Kernels, flashing and bricking your phone before attempting.

    I root all my devices when I get them. It's the first thing I do before I add apps.
