    Close call at the verizon store

    So i went to take my wifes phone in for a focus issue. The camera wouldnt auto focus. I was going to root her phone but never got around to it. Left the z4root apk under a roms sub directory and downloaded and installed both droid x bootstrapper and droid 2 bootstrapper but never used them. I sbf'ed the phone back to 2.3.340 just to see if that fixed the auto focus issue and when it didnt i took it in to Verizon. After a little bit one of the supervisors at the store came back and said has this phone been rooted. I said no. i did download some apps but never rooted it. See they dont work. i feared loosing my warranty"
    he said "i see all the apps are here for rooting though on the sd card. But since it isnt rooted we will go ahead and proceed with the warranty."

    Geez i almost peed my pants. I'd take the wrath of verizon anyday over the wrath of my wife not having a working phone.

    Verizon reps can be extremely ignorant on issues such as this. I don't think it states anywhere in the terms of service that you can't have a certain file on your SD card.

    haha. Sounds scary. When I brought my rooted X in, they didn't even notice.

    But I don't see what wrong with rooting.
    In a perfect world, making your phone work like it should in the first place wouldn't void your warranty.

    I would have asked him why he was looking through MY personal data on MY sd card, without MY permission.

    You are exactly right. I was thinking the same thing. They found circumstantial evidence only. I'd have asked them if they also looked at my pictures folder while they were nosing around too.

    That's exactly what was going through my head when I read this.

    Friend works for VZW, he rooted every one of his coworkers phones, then when the iPhones casket out, he did the jailbreaking.
    EDIT: I would have raised hell at that store had it been me.

    I would've just said "A friend downloaded them but had to go before he told me what to do with them...So I just left them there"
    I think that would work

    The thing is he didn't have to say squat other than ask why he was looking at the SD card without permission.
