Umm, if it is fully bricked, how will they know its rooted? When I spoke to a rep at VZW she basically told me most of the reps have the droid x because they could root it - she wouldn't say "rooted" but she was stongly eluding to it ... I spoke to someone again the other day and told him my phone was rooted so I could use wifi tether for free (although it didn't work well with the APEX blurry rom), and he didn't say a word. You're changing software on the phone, not the hardware. If you remove the seal on the screws or get it wet, yes, voided warranty, but if you root it and the phne is not functional, then they will never know - you really think they will take the time to reload the software on it and find the root? I doubt it .... they could care less ... they do it themselves. If you brick it and don't use RSDLite to restore SBF then you shouldn't be rooting it - its always recoverable in one way or another unless you have a hardware problem. If you root and then the screen goes out or the keyboard stops working, of course send it in as its a hardware problem! Didn't they pass a law basically saying you could jailbreak your iphone as you are modifying software - if so, that same bill extends to any droid phone as well in VZW. Think about it ... it would be like dell voiding your warranty because you changed it to a hackintosh or put linux on it instead of windows. Completely ridiculous.
