    Droid 4 superuser/unroot.

    A few weeks ago I rooted my Droid 4 using bubsybox/motofail. About an hour after rooting SU updated itself and I lost the ability to have super user control. Even though I was rooted and had open permission allowed, all my apps said my 4 was not rooted. I got so frustrated I just let it be. Fast forward and I'm having major battery issues so I am getting the phone replaced (gg non removable battery). And now I'm stuck as how to get SU off before Verizon gets it back. I have tried to unroot then reroot and unroot using droid utlilty. And every time it has claimed 'SUCCESS' however i see the error lines in the program about SU already existing.
    "rm failed for ... read only file system"
    I have also factory reset.
    So now I'm at a loss, I've searched the forums but with no luck as to this specific problem.
    Any and all help is welcome.

    Will applying the fastboot on your phone restore it to stock? Check the thread, it might be what you need.

    I've read elsewhere that using motofail directly instead of the Droid 4 utility will work to re-root the phone when su is still on it. Try that, and then unroot.
