    I rooted my DINC and dropped it off a three story balcony. The screen is shot, but it still turns on and I can still receive calls. I am receiving my replacement tomorrow, before I send my broken phone back can I revert back to stock without the screen, or should I break the phone beyond recognition, or am I worrying about nothing and I will be fine?

    does Asurion replace incase of water damage? If they do, drop it in a sink full of water.

    If they don't replace from water damage, run it over with a car.

    I'm favoring the car solution as well, lol. That is a sure fire way regardless of what you've done to the guts to destroy evidence....ha ha

    The phone dipped in water then ran over by a car is by far the better choice. Record it, post it on youtube, then post a link here!

    It shouldn't matter if the phone is rooted or not, as we're not talking about warranty issues here. This is strictly insurance and is independent of the hardware's warranty coverage.

    Asurion will definitely not be looking at youtube in search of evidence. Its not like he will be posting his personal info so that they can trace it back to him.

    Thanks so much for the advice guys. The remote screen didn't work, for some reason adb devices wouldn't see my phone, so that was out. I actually achieved my goal (without hanging, burning, running over, drowning, then stretching my phone) by placing the "revert to stock" img on the root of my sd and booted into recovery (which I've done a crapload of times) and reflashed stock 2.1 by pressing the vol up rocker every 10 sec or so. I still cannot see my screen, but I know it worked because I called my phone from another line and my ringtone was back to the same one as the day I received my DINC. Thanks again to anybody who put time into my inquiry.

    It's always better to be safe then sorry.. it's only a matter of time before they really start looking for any warranty voiding "things" done to the phone with android rising as much as it is. Good luck!!!

    Dude, dont worry Asurion will not be checking your sw, they will see the damage and replace the phone.
