Does Rooting Galaxy S4 Void My Warranty?

Probably one of the most common questions I get is, “does rooting Galaxy S4 void my warranty?”.

And the short answer is yes and no. Rooting by itself does not void warranty. But if you root your Galaxy S4 by installing a custom recovery like TWRP or CWM Recovery, you will increase your binary counter (What is Binary Counter?), which in essence voids your warranty.

However, most U.S. carriers do not check for the binary counter and most warranties accept your Galaxy S4 as-is and by the time it is sent back to Samsung for repair, the phone is usually dismantled.

And also, you can “unvoid” your warranty simply by unrooting (re-installing stock firmware), and using free tools like Triangle Away app to remove any trace of custom recovery.

Will of of this be available for my Galaxy S4?

Yes, will have instructions on how to root, install custom recovery, install custom ROMs, unroot, and even on how to reset your binary counter.

So, don’t worry, we are working on all of that right now (as we speak) so you can have all of those things for “free”.
