      Hi Vikas !

      Its nice to have you on Tech Junction.in, a premier mobile portal.

      Here are the dangers/ or disadvantages of rooting –

      1. No Warranty for a rooted device.
      2. A very slight ( 0.0001 %) of bricking your device.

      But all these are not major disadvantages, as you can get over them.
      By following our guide properly you won’t brick your device, and for warranty you can unroot !

      Hope I helped.

    hello brother brahmnoor i have xolo q800,I am an avid HD game lover tha’t why I sold my 1month branded htc desire v instead of xolo q800 only for playing games.I am able to play all hd games except Moden combat 3 fallen nation.When I install the apk it said that device is not compatible.can you send me the link which will be played.thanks advance.

    • Brahmnoor Singh Chawla

      Hi Soumya !

      You will have to install Modern Combat 3 as an external APK file, and not from Google Play. Gameloft has set many filters, due to which many devices show not compatible in Google Play.

      So try, to get the APK of the game by backup it from any app on any other device.

      If you can’t try to download it from any online source.

      u can go to “makeuseofandroid.com” and there search for modern combat 3 fallen nation,!! there it is available for all devices..

      Thanks Raj for your prompt reply. Presently tried with Nokia AC-10E charger (1200 ma) and it is charging. Xolo charger is 1000 ma and so I hope I have no problems. But will heed your prompt advice and search for a Samsung series charger. Regards. Max.
