    It could be strongly argued that invalidation of an American consumer's warranty by virtue of rooting/jailbreaking is ALREADY invalid due to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

    Basically, Magnuson-Moss says that you can't invalidate a warranty unless you can demonstrate that whatever the consumer did is directly responsible for the failure. At worst, MM basically means the mfr. can require you to allow them to reflash it to stock as a condition of warranty service, but they can't refuse to repair a dead LCD because they have evidence that you rooted the phone.
