In most cases they'll just look for the splash screen to say the warning message but we all got the logo.bin flashed. Worst case scenario they'll check through fastboot.

You mean unlocked ^^
If you flash software which will could cause a hardbrick or any other hardware failure then, for my knowledge, your warranty might be gone.
The reseller can only refuse warranty if he can proove that damage is caused by rooting, flashing etc.
Law expects that an failure in between six months must be from the beginning.
But after six months you have to proove that this failure was there from the beginning. This can be very tricky.

Only unlocking bootloader or rooting will not void your warranty in the EU. At least not the one which is given by law.
But the manufacturer warranty, which is an additional service of the company, can be voided.

You can read more in this german article which i have translated using microsoft translator.

Nobody can answer that for you. There are advantages and disadvantages doing this.

True, unlocking the bootloader will not void your warranty. Damaging your phone while trying root it, 'may' void your warranty if the seller/manufacturer can tell, and can prove you caused the damage

Thought I should clarify this. If a problem occurs with the phone in the first 6 months, the responsibility lies with the manufacturer to
a) Repair
b) Replace
c) Refund
d) Prove the problem does not exist.

If a fault occurs AFTER 6 months, but before the end of the manufacturer warranty. The manufacturer must:
a) Repair
b) Replace
c) Refund
BUT the manufacturer is within their rights to ask the customer to 'Prove' the fault exists and that they did not cause the fault through misuse etc. Usually this would require an engineer or technician report. In reality sellers will almost never do this.

Note: In the UK (and maybe rest of europe) the sale of good acts requires items last for a reasonable amount of time (not just the warranty period) this is I believe 6 years.
SO technically you could claim for repair even up to 6 years, however the responsibility will be with the consumer to prove the fault was in design and manufacture and I 'believe' that it occurred in the first 12 months since purchase. (Very hard for a consumer to prove this)..

Not sure what you mean by 'warranty given by law' vs 'manufacture warranty'. The manufacturer is required to give a limited 12 month warranty on all goods as per the sale of goods act. A lot of manufactures will give an 'Additional' warranty, or a warranty that covers a longer period as standard. Samsung & HTC = 2 years, for example. SO, although they only require to give you 1 year, once you have bought the device, with teh 2 year warranty, you have entered a contract and they must honour the full 2 years...

Actually the first 6months is called workmanship warranty. Its unconditional warranty as long as there no blatant damage to the device. If you have tempered with it, then you go into the standard warranty clauses. Which it is then up to the manufacturer to decide weather they will repair it for you. Sometimes at a discounted price when it is in fact your fault. But if you have blatantly damaged your device, you wont be eligible for a warranty. If its software related though, they could give you the benefit of the doubt.

This is my story : I bought a soft bricked moto g xt1032 the bootloader shows device locked status 0. I've tried many methods to bring it to life without luck. I've got the unlock code from the earlier owner. In the next few days my friend who works in a t mobile service will try to recover the phone if he fails I'll send the phone to RMA. Will see what happens
