Hopefully this is the right place to ask this...
Does modding your icons on the home screen void the warranty on the phone? I never even knew this could be done, until today. But, now that I've seen what you guys have done, I really want to go home and try it out.
But, if it means my warranty is voided, forget it.

Don't really know how it could, being that no one has managed to brick a phone doing this, and the factory settings can all be replaces using restore in iTunes..

Yeah. Obviously it voids your warranty. But only if your phone breaks with your icons changed on it. I don't think Apple has a way of determining if you customized your phone unless it breaks without the original icons on it. If your just having problems with your phone you can restore it and then send it in for service. I don't think they can prove you have modded it or not.

What kind of activities will void my warranty?

If you can follow directions to the tee, you should have no problem. Hell, i'm an old fart and it was a 3 day learning curve with NUMEROUS restores and resets and now I have personalized ringtones, home key icons, batteries and recption bar modifications. I guess you can screw it all up but if I can do it your odds are slim you"ll permantly mess something up beyond what a restore will fix.
