Everything reset back to android 2.3.4 as expected but still would not connect to cell tower after the reset. If I complete the steps again and turn S-ON and return the phone for a replacement (I have a couple of weeks left of the 12 month warranty) is there any way that Verizon they can tell that the phone was once rooted. Verizon told me that they would send me a replacement, but if the phone I sent back to them had been rooted, they would charge me the full price (over $400). Thanks,
If it is s-on they can NOT tell. The only possible exception to that rule is those who use the newer HTC dev unlock method of unlocking the boot loader which leaves a trail behind and marks the bootloader as such. If you rooted using Unrevoked, you're golden.
