Rooting itself does not void any warranty. If you're smart, you can just load the stock fastboot+recovery+data and the vendor will have no means of checking whether your device was rooted or not.
Also some manufacturers allow you to unlock bootloader (Xiaomi) without impacting your warranty.
I mean it's rather stupid decision - are you going to lose warranty over dell laptop just because you installed Arch Linux on it? Of course not.
I bough my note4 used as showroom device. It came to me with wrong version of the OS full of bugs and with damaged front camera (from continual use of camera apk without noticing). So they gave no hardware warranty and prolonged software warranty. There was nothihing to think about, I gave it root, TWRP bootloader, latest version of the stock OS (becose of S-pen support) without operator modification, kernel app, and so on, to made that phablet really able to do what most of the people can't.

Hi Guys,Just Wanna Help! Don't Use Kingroot! It's has Spyware! Use Kingoroot,Iroot,Vroot!
If u has kingroot Uninstall Before it's too late 2Weeks Ago My note 2 was Rooted by Kingroot After 6month is bricked.
In 2014 I bought my first Smartphone (Sony Xperia Z1), didn't know about rooting or that the XDA website looked like that 3:50. Now I'm still using my Z1 running CarbonROM Nougat and I'm glad that I've chosen a very development-friendly OEM when I was a layman.
I am an Android geek for sure.
I have rooted my phone and changed the ROM more than 10 times ... And finally settled on stock ROM only. Lol
I have xposed installed and always been trying new modules . I have bricked it (soft brick). Twice or thrice but yeah now I am full aware of what to do and what not to do in this particular phone of mine. So yeah Android geek. Root it.
I do want to root but i want but i dont my phone to "brick". So i'm looking for the safest way to root my phone without that happening. I dont have my warranty so I'm not worried about that and i dont really care about the risk of a virus. (i have another for non-game purposes). Please help me.
Why not root a cheap tablet rather than an expensive phone. Use your phone as a phone. Get a cheap device to experiment on OR experiment on cheap prerooted Android emulators such as Gennymotion on your PC. If you brick them simply uninstall and reinstall. When you become a rooting wizard THEN root your phone after the warranty expires.
Rooting or Jailbreaking will not void the warranty, it's just a manufacturer scare tactic.
Unless the manufacturer can prove that such modifications are the cause of any hardware malfunctions, it would be illegal.
I rooted my phone about a month ago while i still had warranty, few weeks later my phone just blocked, it was pretty normal for it so I just did a factory reset, it reseted and once when it should have been on already it just reseted itself again. That was happening till phone ran out of battery, I took it to service and they said nothing about warranty, thing they did was kind of assholy because they changed my whole software and I lost everything that was on it, even things from SD card and it can not be back, so in my case warranty was not problem but everything I lost was. I found out that thing that did mess up my phone WAS rooting but reason for it was installing way too many shitty apps that require root. One of those was soft buttons, i really wanted them but that was biggest thing that ruined my phone. I rooted my phone AGAIN and I was aware of things I shouldn't do. If you decide to root phone just be careful :)
