    The lock/power button on my Droid sticks and I have to take it to the Verizon Wireless store so they can look at it but if they see I have Bugless Beast on my phone is that going to be a problem? I just want them to give me a new phone because the key sticking is really annoying.

    Your warranty is void while rooted and/or running a custom ROM, and they do not have to help you. Most VZW techs are smart enough to see this, and will decline service.

    You should unroot your phone first.

    Gah.... if I download the unrooted Version of 2.0.1 from Rom Manager do you think that would be good enough?

    I wouldnt risk it. A tech may try and update your phone for you, at which point SPRecovery or CMR would give away that you've modded your phone. Keep in mind that plenty of techs know how to root, and are bound to follow company policy to keep their jobs.

    This might be a stupid question but I've never even thought about taking my phone all the way back to stock. How to I get the stock recovery back on?

    This almost makes me not even want to take them the phone at all. Going to the trouble to figure out how to unroot my phone then to reroot it once I get a new one that will have 2.1 installed on it. I payed $250 for the phone and I'm having a physical problem with the phone I should be able to get a new one. Anyways thanks for the help guys.

    I have no idea about that one...I know that the link i posted for you will take you back to stock without the techs knowing you was ever rooted.

    Also if you get a new phone you will lose all your apps,so mount your droid and drag all your folders to your desk top,that way when you get your new phone you can put them back on your new sdcard.

    Hope this helps

    Seriously? Are you telling him to do something that could get him in trouble with verizon when there are many ways to avoid doing this? Anyways, (dont take my word for this cuz im not completly sure it will work) but i dont see why just finding the update.zip for the 2.1 ota and installing it wouldnt work. Just make sure you make a backup and wipe data/cache first.

    What's the worst they can say to you if they suspect that you've rooted and then returned to stock??... say No?...
    Then you're exactly where you're at now... so nothing to lose Bro...
