    The "q" check will still read 0/1 from recovery even if you fastboot back to stock with the new ICS updates. I've fastbooted back to barebone stock many times on my RAZR HD with ICS before JB update and I still got 0/1

    If they boot your phone into recovery they will see "q 0/1" which will tell them you phone had been rooted at one point in time. This does not mean your warranty is voided right away though, they need to prove you caused the issue from root, generally if its a hardware issue, its a manufacturing defect, its hard to cause hardware damage from root, though no impossible.

    no im in the process now...the phone is charging now from the terminals...
    so of coarse i still need to download the sbf program on my gf's laptop..
    side note, a guy on xda said his phone wont let the internal drive overwrite the files..
    but now since vzw can tell its been sbf, idk if i would be better off to send it bricked to moto

    That root checker doesn't work properly cause I have a Droid razr and a Droid 4 that both read qe 0/1 and neither has ever been rooted and were bought brand new from Verizon I would not put any stock into that root checker. The new one on razr hd in jelly bean however I have heard is working correctly and I'm talking about the one droid-life reported using the dialer to check if its rooted

    You'll get a good payday. Did you get the programming cable? If I were you I'd just sbf it and keep it. From what I remember your problem was software related, so what Verizon will do is send a refurbished phone that was sbf'd. If you have a hardware problem then send it back.

    I read that too, some people with completely stock phones show 0/1.

    Like I said, if you have no hardware problems just keep the phone because there are stories of people getting multiple refurbished phones because of problems on each one.

    Two phones? I didn't know they already sent you a phone. So you're supposed to return the original and you're trying to sbf it?
