Received my One X this morning. On all my previous phones, i've dumped sense and rooted immediately. It's a bit early for custom roms etc without sense, however i'm slightly perturbed by the unlocking boot loader via HTC.
I've just spent £500 on this phone, it's sim free, so there's no carrier to send it back to. If I unlock via HTCDev, it seems i lose part or all of my warranty immediately. Cutting out the legal speak and disclaimers, does this basically mean as soon as I unlock, i'm completely screwed if something goes wrong with the hardware?
If I use an alternative boot unlock/ rooting method, is this different to using the HTCDev solution? will it be detectable if it's sent back to HTC for repair?
Just to let you know. I've rooted my Desire and my Sensation, had to sent my Desire back 2 times for repair and had to unroot it two times.
They just repaired everything and sent it back to me without noticing anything about me having it rooted and unrooted again. So I think they can't detect if you had your phone rooted and unroot it again.
When your hardware fails and you can't unroot it, then you might have a problem but I'm not sure what will happen then.
In my opinion you can better root it without HTCDev so you might have a chance to unroot it and sent it back for repair, otherwise you'll lose your warranty anyway if you use HTCDev
