    Quite a tricky question I think, so let me explain the scenario to you guys first:

    My HTC Desire HD thinks it's connected to a wired headset at all times. I've had it checked out and such, but it's apparently water damaged (though I have no idea how). This means that the phone always wants to output sound through the headset which is not actually connected, ergo I couldn't hear a thing. Owing to the fact that I really can't be bothered getting into a complaints procedure with HTC directly (third year uni is hectic enough as it is), I've been getting around this by downloading an app that lets me manually block sound coming through a headset. The only thing is that I have to speak on speakerphone, so it's not a complete fix. And speakerphone on even the lowest volume is still quite loud and annoying.

    So what I'm asking is if through rooting the phone there would be a way to re-trick the phone into thinking that a headset isn't connected (though technically there is, and physically there isn't)? This would solve all of my problems.

    I have a problem with my HTC desire after I installed MIUI_Au yesterday.

    Problem is whenever I charge the phone with socket charger the phone is not being charged AT ALL and the led light is green.

    When I switched off the phone and charge with socket charger it gets charged properly with orange led and the led turns green when it is fully 100% charged.

    Then i tried charging with computer, the phone gets charged properly in running mode BUT the led is green colour all the time.

    I have tried battery wipe reset as MIUI_Au website suggests but i see no change

    Any idea what is wrong with my phone??

    Still some issues with my ROM of choice ("ICS MOD") but I should have A2SD after my phone is done flashing.

    ICS is so smooth and nice :sogood:
    Shame about the 4.0.3 drawer lag tho :erm:

    So the general consensus is that rooting but not unlocking the bootloader doesn't cause the warranty to become void? I've asked this on XDA forums but with so many users from so many different countries I just want to make sure by asking you guys

    I'm pretty sure if a manufacturer can detect you've rooted they won't honour it.

    How about if it's rooted, a few apps get deleted and then unrooted again?

    I honestly don't know how a company would go about checking if your phone was rooted or not so I really have no idea.

    I just know that if they can tell the phone has been modified at all they will not honour the warranty.

    Not necessarily, send my DHD away for a repaid and it was h-off, and this is probably the easiest way to tell if something is messed with, you go to boot loader and it says h-off rather than h-on. Also had CWM recovery installed, and they sent me a replacement no problems.

    Newbie language please

    Just out of curiosity, did you send it off for a hardware or a software fault?

    repaid should have been repair haha

    Sorry, just realised its s-off and s-on rather than h. Its basically if the boot loader is unlocked. At first it was the only way to flash a custom recovery, before they worked out unlocking the radio (the cellular part of the phone).

    CWM is a custom recovery that allows you to flash unsigned images and loads of other stuff. The normal recovery only lets you flash the images downloaded from the manufacturer website.

    It was sent away for a broken digitiser, but they didn't fix it, just replaced it.
