    Here's some threads in the all-thing-root-eris forum that discuss un-rooting:

    As far as the new (refurbed?) phones from VZW, many are getting 1.49 S-OFF versions of HBOOT that is "difficult" to root (there are folks working on this as we speak, but its still a pretty tricky effort). Look around the main Eris forum for 2.1 root leak threads and you'll see what I mean. Don't know what HBOOT version a truly new phone from VZW these days has (this is the key to determine rooting). If you happen to get a version 1.47 HBOOT phone, its much easier to root the "traditional" way. Good luck.

    if i just turn my phone in rooted, the first time he looked at it he was going to exchange it then but i said no because i needed to save some stuff first. if i go ahead and exchange it rooted what would happen. could they come back later and charge me for a new phone since i voided the warranty.

    I think that's the scenario...rooting means voiding your warranty. When I rooted, I was fully prepared to have to return to my old flip-phone :eek: and thankfully have not had to (knock on wood).

    I haven't read through all of the links above, but I think that's why most folks unroot. Maybe someone else with firsthand experience will also reply regarding this.

    i'm going to have to return this one because i've lost usage in the lower corner of the screen. sorta sucks having to use the trackball at times.
