I just bought Nexus 5 yesterday .
the retailer shop said that my warranty will be void if i root the device .
the guy also said he can check my phone whether the phone have been rooted or not even if i unroot it .

So my question is, Is it possible to check the phone used to be rooted even if i unroot it?
or he just bluffing ?

Sorry for my bad english .

If you flash the factory images, lock the bootloader and reset the tamper flag, they wont be able to know if it was ever rooted.

Even if you Root and unlock the boot loader, you can revert back to previous state which your warranty statement claims by following this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2513701
