Yes, unlocking your bootloader will lose your warranty

Rooting will not effect warranty as you can always flash a stock FTF to get back to "Factory settings"


In order to root your phone just follow one of the many guides in the general or development sections.

I have also answered this about 4 times a day over the several weeks in various threads in the Q&A section, just search for

How to root

in the Q&A section...
