Since HTC is going to start unlocking thier phones and Verizon has no issue with that

 

those who have unlocked their phones should have no issues with warranty unless they alter the OEM Rom or install a different rom

 

Most people want to root to get rid of all the bloatware

 

So we are back to why not let us remove what we want and put this to rest....

 

Behold, the Power of the Android Community: HTC to Unlock Future
Bootloaders

I think VZW has no issue (if that is actually true) is because if a phone pukes and it has been rooted, their hands are washed of providing a replacement.

You hit it right on the head, just because they do not lock down bootloaders still does not change that rooting and installing unarthorized firmware or OS violates TOS and voids warrenty which cleans Verizons hands to replace device if it gets damage while doing any of these things to device.

I guess the $64 question is whether or not HTC/VZW will unlock the bootloaders of existing phones or do you have to buy a different model to get an unlocked bootloader?
