    not sure if i fully understand this. rooting your phone voids your warranty. but if you back your phone up and restore it to its original 2.0.1 will it still be voided? how could they tell?

    You're asking a couple of different questions.

    Getting root access on a Droid ("rooting" means something else, ask an Australian), in and of itself, does not void the warranty.

    The warranty, in part, reads:
    Getting root access won't damage anything. If you use root access to overclock, and your Droid fails, it is not covered under warranty (there is a reasonable presumption that if you modify it so it is working beyond specifications, damage is due to that modification).

    Your second question, "how could they tell?," is only meaningful to someone looking to be dishonest, and trying to conceal damage which would not be covered by the warranty. Whether or not they can tell, if some modification you do causes your Droid to break, you can't honestly ask for Motorola to fix it.
