    I need to UNDO the root and RESTORE to factory condition:

    How do I make it so that they won't even ever know that I rooted my phone? I want to make it like I got it on DAY 1. But I need a step by step guide.. Not even sure how to copy files on there.

    You can do this one of two ways.

    1) Download the fastboot files that can be found here: [HOW TO] Restore your Motorola Droid 4 (XT894) to stock [Windows Only]

    There are instructions there as to how to operate fastboot files, and you can do this very easily by following the instructions.

    2) you can undo everything manually, which is more complex.

    First, download the droid 4 utility to your computer which can be found here: Droid 4 Utility for Windows/Mac/Linux

    Go to safe strap and turn safe strap mode to off.

    Boot up the phone and uninstall safe strap.

    Then plug your phone into your computer by USB, and and open the droid 4 utility and select 2, or unroot.

    After this, you'll need to manually remove all files pertaining to root & the apps you have that are root compatible. Go through your list and uninstall them one by one, and open your file manager and remove all the file folders associated with these apps that may still be on your internal SD card.

    If you want to make it completely and totally new, open your settings, and go to Privacy, then Factory Reset, then check Erase SD card (this is only if you have an external SD card in the phone, if not, don't select this option), then select Erase Everything.

    Your phone will then take a few minutes and reboot, and you'll be prompted to start your phone as if you had just pulled it out of the box.


    There you go.
