    No need to unroot as it's not covered unless you have insurance.

    yes you have to file a claim through assurion and pay the $50 or $80 or $90 deductable and they will have you phone to you the next day. you just send back your broken droid in the padded envelope they provide

    I would unroot just to be on the safe side before you take it to verizon and try to negotiate some deal. You don't want them to notice and then screw you over.

    edit: they beat me to it

    unless you are with in your 30 day period I would not even bother with Verizon... even then YOU BROKE your phone why should Verizon take the hit for your carelessness with the precious.
    go here Asurion - Your Technology Protection Company type in your info , pay the deductable, and get a new phone the next day. a cracked screen DOES qualify for a damaged DROID. DO NOT DROP IT IN WATER thats useless and you can't use the phone in the mean time until your replacement shows up

    but yeah droiders..can i have the links on how to unroot the phone? basically go back to my "old settings" i have both nandroid backups (on pc and phone) so how do i go about getting it back to before all the BB goodness.

    could you use the DMU updater to "easy" unroot/stock the phone back?

    shouldn't you be able to hold down x oh physical keyboard wihile powering on, then use the recovery from there? IF you made a backup when before you installed the ROM

    DMUpdater DOES have the option to go completely back to stock. I've never tried it, so I don't know how well it works, but that's what I used to root, so if I decided to go back to stock, I'd use it to do that as well. From everything I've read, those guys really know wtf they're doing. I couldn't believe how easy the rooting process was with dmupdater. This will root, are you sure you want to? really sure? downloading. Open back up, creates recovery for you.

    Again, not sure how the unroot works.

    On a side note, not to be insensitive, but is there any way you can get us some pics of the damage? I'm always interested to see what they look like after horrible accidents. I can't believe mine hasn't shattered. I've dropped it on the hard tile floor at work 2-3 and the battery cover has fallen off and battery flew out almost every time. The tile is some kinda stone, so it's like effing concrete!

    Not sure how it'd work if you DIDN'T go back to stock...I mean, if you took it to a vzw store and they saw that you had it rooted, they could deny your claim, but if you're sending it in to them after they've already sent you a replacement and you've paid the fee, idk if they'd even bother to check the software stuff out. I imagine they'd just flash it back to COMPLETE stock with no extra apps or anything and fix the physical damage if it's just the screen and/or a few scratches that're messed up...

    Here ya go buddy! Video and all! You'll want the second post to unroot.

    When you're rooted, and you open up DMUpdater, it will download some recovery info. I wouldn't worry about that at all. Then, just follow the video!

    I broke my Voyager about 3 times, no insurance, past warranty etc.. whenever I took it to he verizon store they just told me to pay $50 and gave me a refurbished one, so I dont even really know what good having insurance is when they do the same thing for me anyways when it breaks..
