    actually, the phone not turning on at all or 'hard bricked' is the very reason for the warning. It f-s the arm boot, and makes it a very expensive paper weight...

    smash it on a rock then? lol, i got the warning about rom manager one brick too late. lol
    i'm still going to have a sense of humor. :)
    anybody care to spit in my direction? lol
    "I'm not really laughing"
    f**k it, whoever recommended drawing the boobies and pink skirt on it... :)
    another noob bites the dust.
    ok, that's enough sense of humor from my brick of the woods.

    Some have had success with sending their rooted phones in, but it's a flip of the coin. A better question is how long have you had it, and where did you buy it from?
    You might be able to return it to wherever you got it from if you are still in the window. The big chain stores wouldn't be able to tell if it was rooted or not.

    At least you're keeping your spirits up. I hope that all goes well in whichever route that you choose be it dongle, or sending it back.
