Regaining your warranty.
Hi there everyone. I just wanted to share my experience in regaining my voided warranty. Not too long ago, I had attempted rooting my galaxy s4 I9500 for the first time, it had been a successful root and went ahead with flashing a custom rom which had also been successful.
Now this is where I went wrong, being the first time I had ever attempted these things, I got rather excited and went a little too far without reading carefully and attempted installing a ROM from the I9505 section and the required gapps. As you can imagine, my device blacked out. At this point I started freaking out and decided to go to the Samsung care center not far from me. I explained what I had done and the technician informed me that I had lost my warranty but not to worry it could be restored.
I was told to give him an hour and when I returned I received my device with the stock firmware installed and a note informing me that my warranty had been given back to me. Here are the screens to prove it.
So for $15 I had my device restored to original factory settings and an intact warranty in writing from Samsung.
