    rooting and warranty...

    sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

    ok, i know that if you root it, ur warranty becomes void.
    But, by un-rooting it, does ur warranty come back? like when you jailbreak the iphone/ipod touch

    Unlocking the bootloader voids your warranty. Simple as that.

    Basically, if you do it, you have no way of going back and you're SOL when it comes to warranty.

    If you go into the store to exchange it are they really gonna check to see if its rooted or not? I don't think so but i could be wrong.

    All they have to do is reboot it and they'll be a picture of an open lock during startup. Pretty nifty feature, actually. Also, returns/exchanges are handled by HTC/Google.

    ok, found something... Relocking your Bootloader - xda-developers

    EDIT: ok, i have decided that i won't root until it can be undone... i suggest whoever reads this, should do the same!

    Over at XDA developers everyone has rooted their phone. The consensus is that if you root, and there is some hardware defect that you have found afterward and it cannot be linked to the phone being rooted i.e. dust under screen, bad pixels in the display, faulty headphone jack, etc, and if you are willing to put forth some effort, you can get a replacement. There is one fellow there who claims to have received a replacement for his rooted device. However when you root it does warn you that you have voided your warranty so..............I guess if you have hadset insurance you could get it replaced that way, although it wouldn't be free.
