    rooting

    Just got myself the galaxy s4 for verizon. Is it worth it to risk it and root the device? Or wait until my warranty runs out?

    I don't think there is any risk to rooting, you can easily root/unroot an android device AFAIK

    If you don't what you are doing you can easily brick your device.

    If you don't know how, and don't know what to use it for, then don't.
    If you do, go nuts.

    I'm pretty sure you can find a guide on how to get a ROM from your phone and save it elsewhere (a backup so to speak)

    If you feel like it, you should root it, it`s not that hard. But if it gets somewhat '' damaged '' in the process, you know you have to pay to fix it >.<
