    my thanks to blitbroke for the root procedure and keeping it up to date. i would like to try this out however;

    doing a root on my phone i'm on my own if something goes wrong, would the lg warranty be void tinkering/hacking in if i ever had to send it in for repair (eg electonic repair,other technical problems) ?

    also with V1.6 coming out soon will this default it back again to bloatware loading up automatically again when doing the upgrade ?

    just curious.............

    If something did go wrong with your phone that wasn't root related (hardware keyboard stops functioning, etc) I'm sure that LG would still honour the warranty as I don't think they'd be looking for missing Rogers apps on the phone. If they did see some other apps that would only ever work on a rooted phone, and they were knowledgeable enough to know this, then they may not honour the warranty.

    The 1.6 update may or may not bring back the bloatware. I guess it depends on whether Rogers gets hold of it and re-inserts them. As far as Rogers is concerned, a regular user will already have the bloatware installed, so why add it to the 1.6 update? Knowing Rogers though, they could go either way, so I guess only time will tell!
