In our country sellers are well protected against it.
The mobile operator refuses to sell the phone while you don't, sign conditions in Which it is stated that the guarantee does not apply when you do something with system.


Now i have Xperia XZ but i can't even use it. Everything usable needs root. (e.g. GLTools, Sixaxis enabler, Xposed...)

The EU anticipated that sellers would try to dodge the law by making you sign law-evading small print, so they added a safety net.

EU directive 1999/44/CE says:

(22) Whereas the parties may not, by common consent, restrict or waive the rights granted to consumers, since otherwise the legal protection afforded would be thwarted...

So whatever contract you may have signed, you still keep the two year statutory warranty. You simply can't sign that right away.
