    Is there anything I should do before I return it, Factory Reset etc?

    I had it rooted at one point with that z4 Mod app, I un-rooted last month, and just un-installed the app all together, having that doesn't void the warranty or anything does it?

    Just bringing it back to get a replacement because mines defective.

    Trying to leave within the next 5-10 minutes, so a response ASAP would be awesome, thanks

    Depends, if clockwork recovery still shows up, can't return it. Gotta get rid of the bootstrapper's hijack first, or else they'll know it's been rooted.

    How do I tell if Clockwork Recovery shows up? How do I get rid of the bootstrappers hijack. Is that SBF thing I've heard about part of it?

    I kinda figured that once I "un-rooted" it and un-installed it all evidence of it ever being there would have disappeared. I only ever used it for Screen Shot apps, and ADW/Go Launcher things, oh and wireless tethering once or twice just for fun

    If you rooted and rom'd, you need to abf to bring the phone into a returnable state. Sbf is probably the easiest way, if drivers and such are all installed properly.

    Next time I suggest calling the *611 or whatever number it is: they usually overnight/2day ship you a new phone, no need to wait.

    I asked her because before my partners phone got overnight shipping, and this time she said 5 days, and when I asked her why she said they changed their Warranty or whatever, and said that since I didn't have the Insurance on my phone I couldn't get the overnight delivery, just the 5 day one. Oh well, no biggy. I will just use my current D2G until the new one arrives.

    When I returned my rooted d2g a couple of months ago, I did pretty much the same thing as you. I just unrooted using z4, then uninstalled it. I may not have even uninstalled droid 2 bootstrapper, I can't remember. But they didn't notice it was rooted either way.

    I returned a D2G without unrooting it once, it got replaced in store only because it was during the 14 day worry free time. Funny part is, the guy who helped me was using a Nexus 1, with (I think it was) CM on it.

    Do a data/cache wipe in stock recovery. It should still be intact since you got to the moto logo. If it still won't boot, sbf. Should work after that. If it simply won't power on though, I suspect it's a cable somewhere inside or the battery's dead.
