it might have something to do with the bootloader and loss of drm, you do not lose anything with the Samsung that will reduce apps from working.
I guess you missunderstood my post with that Arc S, it was just to show that Sony indeed changes their device even if they are rooted.
Well, Idk how Sony is now after they've broken up with Ericsson, I hope that I've never have to send my phone to repair.
Also, I don't know the law in HK, but in Germany they HAVE per law to prove within the first 6 month that YOU caused that missfuncion. So it doesn't matter if it's rooted or not. So basicly here in Germany after 1 year(or 6 months with root etc) it's like russian roulette.
Well, my device is rooted with custom FW, but it says "Bootloader unlock allowed: Yes" so it should be still locked with DRM partition and my warranty there
