I wasn't going to root my phone because of eFuse, then I heard that rooting won't trip it, loading custom ROMs will, now I'm hearing that it won't trip the eFuse...What will trip the eFuse and if it is tripped is my phone screwed or can you fix it?

You can't trip the efuse...that is a false rumor.

Thank you. What is eFuse anyways? I just heard it will brick your phone...

I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I know you don't need to worry about it and it won't brick your phone.

Be concerned with reading and understanding what you're doing when hacking...failing to do that is what bricks phones, not the efuse.

The efuse blocks access to modifying the kernel/access to bootloader.

What does the bootloader do and can you get around the efuse?

The bootloader is what is locked down. Access to this will give access for full customization like on original droids. Its like looking for a needle in a haystack. The best option is that devs find a work around the refused. Hasn't happened yet. May never happen.

Ultimately, rooting, romming, themeing, overclocking, etc wont brick your phone unless you're completely careless

FYI, just go into the subforums and at the top are stickyed threads, these threads have alot of useful info on things like root, ROMs, themes, etc. And if you can't find it there, just ask!
