Warranty claim for unlocked boot loader...DENIED
Hey all. Just to share my experience with you guys. Have a One X Malaysian unit, purchased in April, unlocked in May. Sometime two weeks back, noticed very weak Bluetooth and WiFi signals. Reverted to stock using the latest 2.17 RUU, confirmed it was a hardware issue. Sent it back to HTC on Friday and got a call from them today.
Basically, they confirmed the problem was a hardware issue, but as my unit had it's boot loader unlocked, they said warranty was void on the motherboard.
I asked if the unlocking of the bootloader could have caused his. They said they could not ascertain if it did.
I then asked why was it stated on the HTCDev website that unlocking MAY void warranty, but no details are given on what part of the warranty is void. The rep could not answer.
I understand if I OCed and burned the cores or something, but WiFi and Bluetooth failures are a defect. So I then sent an email to HTC Taiwan explaining the situation, have yet to receive a response. Let's see what transpires.
