Aqeel November 29, 2012, 5:00 pm

Does rooting Q Mobile void its warranty? If it does, how do we unroot the device? And would this procedure work with Noir A6 as well? Would highly appreciate a response, thanks!

Jailbreak Eye November 30, 2012, 2:21 am

Yes it voids your warranty.
The rooting tools also has the unroot feature.. or simple restore factory defaults.
This guide should also root qmobile A6 but i haven’t tested it, yet.

Aqeel November 30, 2012, 11:48 pm

Great! Thanks buddy! If you test A6 soon, please do post a reply here. That would be great!

Jailbreak Eye December 1, 2012, 2:23 am

Since the rooting tool works on almost all ICe Cream sandwich and Jelly bean phones, it should work just fine on A6 as well… Checkout the guide: http://www.jailbreakeye.com/android/root-qmobile-noir-a6
