Yup..Apparently rooting a Non-branded phone cannot void one's warranty. It's a legal loophole of HTC's warranty policy. The fineprint only excludes damages that come from physical abuse, and use of non branded hardware. HTC doesnt actually exclude flashes or softbricks from warranty. I was able to return my Desire after a softbrick
BUT, if its branded with an operator, I'm not sure. The Operator may have a seperate warranty policy which you sign. One will have to check fineprint on that.
