    Default If I flash the firmware, will my warranty be void?

    The topic pretty much says it all. I live in the Middle East so i dont think v50 is present there for 5800. So if i flash the firmware, will the warranty be void? and also. in case i hack the phone for installing all the apps n stuff, can it be restored to the earlier versions again? In all these cases, will the warranty be void?

    Thx in advance

    flashing with jaf / phoenix - no, changing product code and updating thru NSU - possible (although 99.9% confirmed warranty validation atleast in india)

    Hacking will not void your warranty.
    Changing product code (to that of your region) and updating via NSU will not void warranty.
    Everything else like custom firmware etc. voids your warranty.

So it's better if you read the waranty certificate of your phone and make sure you don't do something that will void your warranty. I know because this happened with another 5800 I own.
