[Q] Root messing up network?
I have always had my I9300 rooted, there are way too many apps I don't use to keep it stock. But ever since I had it in for repair (unrooted of course) and got a new board because it lost Bluetooth connection, it has lost the network connections every time I root it. Network being both phone networks and hence, the internet connection. I got it back with Android 4.1.2, I rooted it and within 4 hours, it lost the network. I flashed a Android 4.1.1 and sent it in again, they did nothing butupdate it to 4.1.2 and it worked fine. I rooted this 4.1.2, and it lost connection again. This time, I overlooked the fact that I had forgotten to reset the flash counter and got it back with a polite note that they could not treat it under warrenty since I had rooted it and root frequently provoked the specific error, losing networks. And if I could install the official Android and show NO on the flash count, they would repait it for me. Nice treatment in a root-hostile world of warranty repairs ;=) I reset flas counter using Triangle Away, sent it in again, got it back for the third time and rooted it, same mess. No connection to network. Is this a device-specific error or IS it true that rooting can cause this error? It started with the new board, do the new boards have special sensitivity to rooting as a extra "HAH- you rooted and lost warranty"-function??????
