After you root there is a way to flash back to factory settings so you can update it to the newest stock version or re-root. Technically if you didn't flash back to the factory settings your warranty would be voided. I bought an accidental damage warranty from Square Trade for $30 and they don't care what you do to your device.
Also, if you install a app called Clockwork Recovery I don't think you can flash back to stock. I think you have to do something else to get there. All this info is in the Nook Developers sub-forum.
