    Yh it can be reversed, I do it all the time, apprently it voids warranty but a factory reset, gets rid of any trace, when doin firmware updates you should unroot it and then re root after

    I use Universal Androot, which has the option to un-root after you've rooted. You can then uninstall the app to erase your tracks further. But personally, I wouldn't even bother un-rooting. When I sent my Orange San Francisco back (faulty), the courier who took it away gave me a new one at my front door. All he checked was the IMEI, companies aren't bothered with making such thorough checks.

    Personally I wouldn't bother as it will probably come with a very up to date version of Android installed. It can take a fair amount of time to read up and root your phone.

    If the phone gets replaced by the network then you don't need to worry but if you op to get it repaired by the manufacturer (like htc) then the warranty is void unless you re root the phone.

    Ok i just installed 2.21 on my Galaxy S, Any phone with 2,21 cant be rooted using z4root, you would have to use superoneclick or odin to root your phone via your pc. I had to use superoneclick to root my phone and install the lagfix. Word of warning Samsung Kies is the worst software ever invented, The only way i was able to do a firmeware upgrade was by keeping the lagfix on, which is a big NO, and then doing a factory reset, any other way kies was saying my phone was disconnected.
