Encrypt Kindle HDX's ROM Possible?
From what I've learned online, when rooting a device the changes that are done to the system are done on the ROM file. If true then is it possible to encrypt or overwrite on top of the ROM file to hide any past rooting information?
Reason: I've been having a USB port issue with my PC not being about to recognize the device when plugged into a PC using the micro USB cable. Searched online and found many different ways to troubleshoot the connectivity issue, but couldn't get it to work. Hit the MAYDAY button and said "no, it's not rooted", and yes it did update firmware to 18.104.22.168 so technically no, "it's not rooted"... anymore
Question: Any ideas on how to "hide" this information to keep warranty?
I already have a replacement on it's way so I can side load through USB once again instead of using a cloud drive to transfer files back and forth. I personally think the current device I have has a corrupted file (some where) when the device died of having no battery power. Read it happening to other people, so I believe it. Used many cables, and many PC's including a Linux PC. Nothing, so Amazon support gave up, and decide to send me a replacement HDX since they concluded it's a physical hardware issue. As if one of the ports are not working to load drivers to the PCs using the pug-and-play method. I think that makes sense but I AM NOT 100% SURE OF THIS. I think it makes sense, but I'm not an expert yet. I don't know completely, so don't ask me.
What do you guys think? Am I pretty much screwed and need to forget about replacing this HDX? And probably wait for a better hardware-wise tablet to come out for a reasonable price? Or can I get the replacement, no questions asked?
