Hey guys,

This is once again one out of thousand of the same questions, however, since this is regarding an official installation of Android, that requires the boot loader to be unlocked, this might be a different case..

So let's keep it short: Does unlocking the boot loader and installing Android L voids warranty or not? And if not: How is it reversible so the unlock will be hidden?

Thanks guys.

p.s. Does this belong in the Q&A section or here, since it's both a question and a developer thingy..?

It doesn't void the warranty. Just reboot into the boot loader and type fastboot oem_lock from your computer to reverse it. By the way, yes it does belong in q and a

It does void warranty as you need to unlock your bootloader (Also wipes all data). However as mentioned above you can claim warranty after locking bootloader again.

UPDATE: As you live in EU, you can claim warranty even with unlocked BL, root tada tada.
