    tell me how I can do this............... so it can't possibly work, even if I take it in to the Verizon store. Brick it, totally EFF it up!! It's rooted, so it shouldn't be hard as I can access all the inner workings.......

    ok, let the suggestions rip!!

    I don't really know how to purposely brick a phone lol. I guess just fire up your favorite file explorer and start deleting system files? Boot.img recovery.img etc... Why would you wanna purposely brick your phone though?

    Why not physically destroy the phone? Much easier.

    Interrupting a radio download and flashing the corrupt file is supposed to do it.

    Again, why is the OP wanting to do this? To defraud the company out of warranty work? To damage someone else's phone permanently?

    Sounds like his phone is acting up and he wants to return it, but it's rooted, so he's screwed out of a warranty if they see a custom ROM on it.

    @Rangerdavid Why don't you just flash a stock ROM on it? They won't pay attention.

    So he wants to defraud the OEM then?

    Does the OP want a different phone all together or a different Inc2? Bricking the phone will only get replaced with another Inc2.

    not necessarily. I had a dinc1 and got a dinc2 via warranty replacement. Lady said I had the choice between another dinc1 or a dinc2, I choose the 2.

    Intentionally damaging a handset with the intent of claiming under warranty is pretty clearly fraudulent, and is therefore not something that should be discussed here at Android Forums.
