Exclamation Rooted Phone Is Dead Worried About Warranty

So I rooted my phone about 3 months ago, I didnt flash a new rom or anything, just did small things blocked ads changed the heap size etc, and its been working fine. The other day im driving home from work listening to audio galaxy and the music starts skipping like its a CD and the phone turns off and wont power back on or anything. The phones dead, took it to verizon and theyre giving me a replacement. But my question is since the phone is dead and the phone is rooted do you think theres any chance that they will void the warranty even though the phone cant boot up?

If the phone can't even turn on their is no way they will find out the device is rooted.

Even if they boot it up, usually you can't really tell right away, unless you have a GNex...stupid unlock symbol...

And lastly, Verizon usually doesn't really care about rooting, as long as they don't find evidence that rooting caused the issue.

Out of the maybe 50 times I have had my phones replaced by VZW only the last time has any of the customer service people asked if my phone were rooted. I just played dumb. All of them have been rooted. Never had an issue. Knock on wood haha
