    If I go ahead and root my nexus but, do not install custom roms, just remove default apps that are other wise unable to be removed..

    Assuming my nexus one works after being rooted in such manner.. if something unforseen happens later on and it just stops working.. Would this still have voided the warranty? I understand that if i try to install a custom rom and brick the phone its my fault.. However, If I just use root the same way I would on linux I fail to see why this would void the warranty..

    Is my logic somehow flawed?

    You will have unlocked the bootloader, so your warranty will be void.
    This is the first stage of the rooting process.....

    If you do decide to go ahead and root, these are the instructions that I used - follow them closely, you'll be fine. Only thing to be careful about is flashing radio images:

    If you are going to root, install a custom ROM...otherwise it's pointless because HTC won't fix it whether it's the default rom's fault or the custom ROM's fault.

    HOWEVER...HTC will still honor hardware faults as long as they are just that: faults.

    So if you burn out your camera with n1 torch, oh well.
