    My droid has a bad screen that actually is bowing outward and getting worse everyday.
    I took it into verizon and the are going to replace it free of charge.
    I was running 2.1 and flashed back to 2.0.1 before I went to the store.
    I'm going to have to send it in and it is still rooted and I'm running the alternate boot image.
    So my question is what else should I do to send it in to avoid losing my waranty and how would I go about doing it?
    Thanks!

    Look on alldroid...they had instructions for unrooting, etc., in the Droid forum there.

    First of all, I would create a nandroid recovery image, and save it to my PC.

    Then, I would copy the whole sdcard to my PC.

    Then, I would follow this thread to a 'T'.

    Then get to the homescreen (without signing in if I could), go to: Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset

    Lastly, format the sdcard.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter. I've hacked phones from Verizon for a long time, and sent them in as is. No problems ever. You don't need to waste your time wiping is clean to "hide" your tracks. It's your phone. Verizon doesn't own Android.

    Oh for sure. Backing up the phone is #1 priority (should be a given) but to send a device back, there is no need to wipe a phone.
