Too late to do it safely, as you used vroot, your IMEI number has already been sent to an unknown IP address in china.
You will be better off doing some reading first, especially the link in my signature

If you are unsure, then read this.
If you are still unsure, watch this.

Who knows, they may do nothing, they may use your IMEI number for nefarious means. Just goes to show the power of doing your research before using something from a website in china on your phone.

You are not the only one, lots of other people have done it as well

You may just as well go ahead and follow the correct instructions to root now

They will come at your Home, direct from China, and knock, knock to the door, usually they don't use the entryphone, they will ask for you and they will ask to let them see your phone, then they will tell you that the phone is confiscated because the one with the same IMEI was stolen in China. Then you will go back home, in your rom, crying and asking your-self why did you use VROOT!!!

ROFLMAO!
