First off, you must ask your self these questions. What's the chance of me breaking or losing my phone with in the contract you made from the phone company such as AT&T, Verizon, Telus or Rogers.? Second, you have to ask if your parents be okay with this (only if your parents are buying the phone) if so, then give it a try once asking your self all of these questions. If they disagree back off or just wait until your contract is over, if you don't have a contract, you don't really need to worry about anything. Hacking your Android phone well break your contract/warranty. This means if you screw up your phone or some hardware issue happens you can not get it fixed or replaced by the company. Most of the time you might think you break it but it is a software issue which you can fix with research of the device and the use of XDA Developers. I can also help. Worst case scenario you buy a cheap go phone and make sure it can fit your phones sim card.
I or anyone else working on this blog is responsible for your device it is solely your decision.
A great website in which you should sign up for any Android hacking help or if you're a developer is XDA Developers. Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/. They have a forum for all types of knowledge on stuff we may not know with over a billion people to help.
Well continue blogging about this later.
