    When buying a phone that is "refurbished", does this mean it has been rooted?
    My phone software would not update, saying it was not original software. The guy at samsung service shop said once is done it can never go back to orig. software, because there is something like fuse that blows. Is this true? Or is it simply a rooting that can be unrooted?

    I want to downgrade my google play services below its factory version. So here's my plan: First, I'll root my phone. Then I'll unistall play services and install a lower version of play services which I have already downloaded. Then I'll unroot my phone again.
    I want to ask that is there any chance that my phone will go brick?

    Rooting and unrooting isn't as easy and he is making it out to be. 1 small mistake and you can softbrick the device, leading to another 2-3hrs of research and downloading to flash original firmware again. Also not all phones have warranty voided after root anymore (2012 video). Pixel phones are one of the few who aren't.

    Btw… it only voids your warranty to Jailbreak or Root your phone or tablet if you walk into the store with it jailbroken or rooted… I've often erased my phone before taking it in for problems that I knew were happening because of either hardware or iOS itself.
