No point going to a Samsung repair centre because if you've rooted the device (as I had) and can't reboot to run TriangleAway, then it means your warranty is invalidated (I called them to check this beforehand).

Re the earlier comment... step 1) buy a PC, step 2) enjoy... as I mentioned, we only have Macs at work and I had a phone that wasn't working properly so it couldn't wait 'til I got home (to my PC)!

This doesn't apply?

Buy anyway, as it's don't you've done yourself it would be dishonest to claim under the warranty anyway... XD

Samsung seems much more complicated than HTC... Triangle away, then problems with custom recovery and triangle away, then this EFS folder... would any kind soul explain what this EFS folder is and why is it so important (and how to back it up)?

Thanx

Why would that not apply to you? unless your device was not purchased within the EU.

I do not see how it is in any way dishonest to have the repair done under warranty.

It not as if it is making a false insurance claim.

Take Care

That's very interesting, thanks for posting. I wish I'd seen that before taking my handset in for repair! Time for a conversation about getting my 100 refunded, I think!

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who's successfully used this information in getting a supposedly 'invalidated warranty' repair done under warranty.
