while vzw has said that they dont check for rooted devices,even sending out refurbs that are still rooted,it still may be possible that someone have a bad day,check,and care,and slap your account with a $500-whatever the retail value is,as rooting technically did
void your warranty.
so if this is a vzw warranty claim,may want to go thru the extra steps to unroot,you can use adb over wirelss(assuming you can find a PC to use where theres wireless

if this is an asurion warranty claim and youre paying the deductible,then it doesn matter. they could give a crap whats wrong with it as long as youve paid the premiums and deductible.
