It didn't take a clarification by anyone for me to know this anyways. If it ever came down to something happening to my phone(s) from rooting I would have sued THEM (VZW or Motorola or both) for pushing an update or something that bricked my rooted phone. You are allowed to alter, destroy, make a sandwich out of anything you buy. That would be like Chevy suing you for putting a sunroof in your Impala that didn't come with one. I didn't root to feel "cool" or be a "rebel" or anything, I rooted so I could customize my phone to look and feel how I wanted it to. This is absolutely no different than people customizing vehicles, homes or clothing. Were there actually seriously people out there that thought they were breaking the law by rooting their phone? LoL
But can I take motorola to court for hindering my right to root my phone since they have locked the bootloader. I feel my right to root is being violated.........well....droid x users rights are being violated (i dnt have a droid x lol).
I seriously doubt it. Just because something is legal doesn't mean you have a RIGHT to do it. More directly, it's unlikely to be illegal to prevent you from doing something you have the legal right to do (i.e. dress code in a restaurant).
Now, if they did a software update that did something screwy to rooters, there might be an issue. But otherwise you buy the product as is so you have no right/claim to capability not represented.
