    Yeh it does,but you can get your phone in warranty by just flashing it with stock ROM.

    it depends on how you root your phone

    xaiomi officially allows rooting and warranty is still valid after rooting only while changing custom rom warranty gets void

    You know!(Samsung)
    Once 6 month ago I rooted my phone but didn't change custom rom
    my phone is still in warranty...
    some days ago(3-4)
    my phone got logo hang
    I take it to service centre and there I got it repaired
    that means rooting doesn't avoid warranty
    only if u change ur custom rom then it will avoid warranty

    KingRoot claimed that users could remove root permissions by turning off the "backup root permissions" after rooting their phones so that to enjoy mobile phone manufacturers warranty. Maybe you can try!-web: kingroot.net/

    Yes most phone waranty is lost as soon as you root it.
    If you want a phone that you can root and still have waranty then go for Lenovo ZUK 1

    some mobile companies like xiomi and Lenovo offer warentee even after rooting but companies like samsung motorola sony htc dont offer the same. You must check this on your mobile phone company's website before doing it

    Rooting void warranty but unrooting again give back warranty.
    So if you have to visit service center, unroot your phone and claim warranty.

    Not custom rom it would stock rom..
