Rules and Entry:

First and foremost all of these rules apply. It is imperative that said developer posts work and supports it. While RootzWiki is not a site of exclusivity, we do encourage developers to support our efforts in Android Development by posting frequently in threads and answering questions. If you have a recent history of violations and infractions you may be disqualified. Have fun and enjoy yourselves!


Contestants must be 15 years or older with parental consent. RootzWiki is not responsible for broken devices, modifying your phone will probably void your warranty. RootzWiki is not an insurance company and will not replace a device if you break it. RootzWiki is a Community driven network for the people by the people. These devices are free and do not require contract. Additionally, anyone who has previously won a contest and provided a phone from RootzWiki within the past 9 months will be unable to receive another phone from RootzWiki until the 9 month mark hits; which you agreed to when you signed up to be a developer. This is to make it fair for everyone.
