Default Root and Warranty?

I got the phone sometime last month, but just this morning my phone broke...in my pocket. I was wondering, since my phone is rooted and runs a custom rom, does this affect physical warranty? Because I wouldn't mind if just my screen was broken, but the touch isn't working as well. I have the tmo D801 model, but I don't have insurance.

I think you are screwed. Warranty is voided if you flashed a custom ROM. However, since your screen is damaged that does not matter. Physical damage to the phone is not covered by warranty at all.
Please use search before posting your question.
Be kind to the devs! Without them, XDA is just a bunch of jerks bickering.

Just flash stock rom
As long as status at download mode or LG RCT is unroot, you are save
