    Yes, root works. I was anxious for this so I could use titanium backup to freeze the bloat. Its been working geat for the last 36 hours.

    Unroot?

    Looked through some of the other threads and yes there are some instructions for unrooting.

    mattlgroff's Droid 4 utility pre-release for windows has both root and unroot options:
    Droid 4 Utility Pre-Release [WINDOWS]

    kbeefy provides instructions from Dan to unroot with adb:
    Ti restore or unRoot?

    Judging from the reports of bricked devices coming in it may be prudent for those like me, who don't understand rooting and flashing in detail, to take this slowly - maybe root but not uninstall or delete anything until there is a recovery sbf. Give the devs and the ones who really know what they're doing a chance to work with the D4 a while (and donate to support their efforts) before we get into backups and flashing, etc.

    It's only been 5 days since this thing was released!

    good idea. if i were you id just root it and install busybox.. you will have all the bells and whistles then... its a fast phone so it isn't 100% necessary to delete stuff off it.
    i myself deleted most of the blur apps and authenticators off and am using asop apps for msging and gallery and go contacts for my phonebook and dialer. furthermore i underclock my cpu to 1ghz max to save power. bty asop 2.3.7 apps wont work im using 2.3.5 apps from cm 7.03
