    From my experience Verizon doesn't exactly care about rooting one way or the other...trying it in the store on a display phone IS pretty bold though lol
    Its really the phone MANUFACTURERS that disapprove of rooting, especially Motorola (for now lol)
    I took my rooted, custom rom D1 in for an issue before for their opinion...basically THEY told me to actually try reflashing the rom, flashing a different rom or trying to go back to stock to try to fix it lol
    it ended up I was right and it was a problem with their service anyway hahaha

    I think it's awesome you tried to root right there in the store. Keep on rockin' in the free world!

    HTC has disclosed publicly they will no longer put locked bootloaders on their phones. I'd say that's a pretty good sign they encourage Android development.

    i think it is funny that manufacturers even bother with locking it down.
    if someone wants to root, they are going to do it, no matter what. and they most likely will get it back to stock if they need to for warranty.

    all the other people wont even bother with it. they wont even know what root is.

    its really silly for mfg's to perpously lock their phones down. it is just putting off a BUNCH of customers (see motorola)

    well, a locked boot loader has little relevance on root.
    my d2g can be rooted with z4 and its BL is locked, where as the charge needs to be flashed to get root.... go figure lol

    im not an expert, just pointing out personal experience...

    When I had my Droid Eris I had a Verizon Rep in the store tell me to root it and overclock it when I complained about speed. lol

    I think it depends on the Rep. Most that are android fan boys and spend their money to getting the latest and greatest are probably cool with rooting. It's the exec types that want to kiss vendor behind that probably make noise about rooting.

    In store root, your juevos dropped early my friend, 5 kudos for you, -5 for anyone who hated on you, I dropped a z4 root when I purchased my original X about 20 minutes before I bought it, so I know how you feel, If I'm paying that much money for something, I wanna know what I'm getting
