Warranty can be "un-voided"

You can't brick a device with a ROM. Even flashing a ROM from another device is recoverable. This is an exaggeration... From the competition.

Flashing Radios, Recoveries and bootloaders from other devices are where potential bricks come in. A ROM simply inhabits the /system partition, which can be formatted and reflashed from recovery.

You know you want a ROM so you're not rooting for nothing. Just because you don't know which one yet doesn't mean you're wasting your time.
