    How? I've heard that HTC can root without making your warranty ineffective

    Because HTC's policy is that they allow you to root their phones. Other manufacturers policies are that rooting voids the warranty.

    How many different ways are you going to ask this question? The answer is always going to be the same. It's not how the HTC gets rooted, it's what the company decides to accept. ANY method of rooting any other phone voids the warranty. To be rooted, a phone has to have the su binary in its storage. That alone voids all warranties except HTC's. It doesn't matter how the file got there - the fact that it's there voids the warranty on Motorola, Samsung, etc. HTC doesn't feel that way. (Other manufacturers also consider the warranty void if you did anything in the phone that you couldn't have done with su not having been there, even if it's no longer there.)
