    I was wondering what the downside to the new root detection for ics is? Does having the root just void the warranty or are they planning to do something about the phone or service if they find out about the phone being rooted? I have the 232 leak atm and I'm rooted and love it but don't want to get a huge bill or something in the mail lol

    They aren't currently doing anything. If they did use it it would most likely be for warranty voids.

    Ooh ok. What about the extra insurance companies like asuion and such? Would it void anything they cover?

    Legally they can't do anything other than void the warranty of the phone, unless your doing things against your contract like tethering without paying for it, especially since android is an open source (shared for free) project.

    I could see Verizon voiding warranties on phones that they detect root on, especially since there are some who brick their phones trying to root or flash a custom rom, then receive a replacement under their warranty when they caused the problem rather than having a true defect.
