    I think you misread the question, unless you were joking.

    warranty will NOT be affected by unlocking the bootloader, rooting or installing a custom ROM.

    But please bear in mind that any damage that you may cause to the phone as a result of unlocking your bootloader will not be covered by warranty.

    Warranty is not voided on unlocking ANY OP model .end of story. Heck they encourage ROMs and give free phones to ROM developers .

    Explain to me what "damage" can occur that cannot be undone in 15 minutes flat w/ the msmtool ?? Talk about trying to scare folks .geez. OnePlus has used such a tool thousands if not hundreds of thousands of times remotely and the phone REMAINS under warranty .

    Let's suppose you wipe EFS. How would MSM tool bring the device back from it? You would effectively be without SIM connectivity.

    Or suppose you decide to overclock the device and fry the hardware...
