Default Rooting with Macbook? Worth the Warranty void?

Ok. First things first, I am simply in love with my Droid. I learn new things everyday. For example, yesterday i took a picture on a trip, and on the ride home, went to look at the picture in my gallery, and under the picture it read Dayton, Ohio. It knew where I took the picture!

Anyways enough of my droid love, i've got some questions for you droid gurus.

1. I want to root my phone so badly. Im afraid of it bricking though. But the thing is, ive done a lot of research, and it seems bricking hardly ever happens. I want to overclock and i really want some kick ass ROMS! Should i do on pc or my pro?

2. My screen, when closed, when you tap on the screen near the lower left corner, the screen taps. Like the screen is loose. I wanna take it to verizon. But i wanna root. But i want my warranty still usable.

HELP DROID FORUMS!

so...get your phone fixed/replaced...then root your phone.

As long as you dont need to roll back from 2.1, rooting your droid doesnt really require a computer, except maybe to put the update.zip onto your sd card.
