Hai Ajinkya………….i have a doubt…….pls clarify me………only 6 months completed after purchasing my phone(Karbonn s5 plus)………if i rooted my mobile and installed cwm recovery….it avoids warranty………if i installed stock recovery again and unroot my phone and flash stock rom again using ygdp tool…can i get back my warranty again….pls reply soon…….

    • After unrooting & Installing the stock rom if you install a app name 'Traingle away' which deletes the Root Count there will be no signs of your device was rooted. But, there are even chances that some technicians figure out that root & Refuse to offer service. Hope this helps, Keep visiting !
