My Thunderbold no longer can connect to WiFi. I unrooted and restored it to the stock ROM and took it to my VZW store, they said, "It's broken, we'll get you a new one."

So I'm waiting for the replacement to arrive, then I have to send mine back to them.

Can they tell it was rooted? I used Revolutionary and followed the proceedure here to unroot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1310014

Booting into recovery shows: *** LOCKED *** <-in red
and shows MECHA XD SHIP S-ON <-in green

Am I OK? Anyone know for sure?

I'll do a reset and swap out the memory card and the SIM when the new phone comes so that'll be clean..... any more I can do?

You are fine. Anytime you unroot properly, they cannot tell....

Sent my phone back shortly after i rooted the first time and they had no idea... And if they did know they didn't care... Either way you are good... Most of the evidence would show up on your sdcard and you don't send that back anyway.. if you are just format it before sending it off.

they can tell if its rooted but if you unroot your phone to stock I don't believe they can tell. But, I don't know about not sending in your sd card. I know that all I'm sending back is the phone with its sd, and sim card that's it. I got my replacement. Last thing I want at the end of the month is to find out that theres a fee because I broke my warranty.

keep your sd card with all of your stuff on it, and send the fresh one back to them

Your replacement will come with NO battery, NO SIM and NO sd card. The instructions will tell you to NOT send the battery, SIM or SD card back, just the bare phone.

I know because I just got mine, if you sent 'em your SD card you'll need to buy another.
