Default Need help with phone

Ok so here is my problem. I rooted and unlocked my buddies 1777 and the spilled water all over it so the battery took a crap and the computer wouldn't recognize anything was plugged into it. So he went to at&t and told them and he filed a insurance claim that said the battery was bad and they were gonna send him a whole new phone on the basis of his battery being bad and the phone still working. So last night trying to get this thing back to factory settings using Mobile Odin lite and the tar file I managed to restore it but the boot load screen still said Samsung 1900. I do not know how to change this or if I even can. So if I can't would it be possible to call insurance and tell them that he drop the phone thirty foot at work and shattered it. So they wouldn't know it was ever rooted or unlocked. Thanks for any help in advance.

haha, this story...

Anyhow, aaron, to try and help you out, you could read up and see if AT&T cares if the device is rooted, sometimes they don't, however, if they cannot turn the device on then that would surely prevent them from accessing it to see if the device is rooted.

Otherwise the only way they could tell is if they boot into recovery.

If you're on ICS, use Triangle Away

And they can easily you're rooted if they're smart enough to know that the i9100 triangle indicates that the phone has been modded with non-stock files (eg root and/or custom roms). Whether they care about it is another story.

I will have to make him call the insurance company and see what he can do because I was just gonna let it soak it water or microwave it haha. Hopefully he can just tell them he broke it and send it back messed up. I don't know his whole story he told them but I think it just had to do with the battery getting water damage so ill have to check into that too. Thanks for the feed back.

It doesn't have the yellow triangle. Mobile Odin took that away.

Aaron, while you may be joking, some of what you are suggesting is insurance fraud and a felony. Committing a criminal act is never a good solution to a problem. Any further discussion of intentionally damaging your friend's phone to place an insurance claim will lock this thread.

As for the "yellow triangle", as loafpincher suggests, if you are able to clear the bootcounter to eliminate the yellow triangle, it should revert to the stock boot splash screen. I used a jig to reset mine and it did revert to the stock screen.

If the phone was to be further damaged it would be by my buddy because it is his phone not mine and his decision. As for clearing the yellow triangle and trying to get it back to stock boot screen I've been sifting through xda trying to find a solution but still nothing found.

So wait a minute, are you saying you have the yellow triangle or you don't?
