    Have Superuser app, but not showing S-OFF

    I tried rooting my Inc tonight and first unrevoked wouldn't start but ended up getting that figured out. But then it froze after the 2nd reboot, in the restore process I think. Rebooted my phone and checked the app list and Superuser is showing up but S-OFF is not. So I tried doing the entire process again but unrevoked is asking if I have a newer version installed. Do I need to unroot and start from scratch?

    Do you have ClockWork recovery? If so you can just flash the s-off through CW, let me know and I'll get ya the .zip

    I went in to do a factory reset and it said ClockWork recovery. Granted I didn't exactly know what I was doing, but I got to the reset eventually lol

    Unfortunately SuperUser is still showing in my apps list. The whole reason I thought I needed to do the reset is because I've begun missing phone calls, emails, etc

    I just checked, and HBOOT still says S-ON

    Any help at this point would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Read through that and get the .zip then flash through recovery.

    As for superuser app I would just flash a rom with it built in or you can try rerunning the tool to see it fixes both the s-off and superuser.

    Okay so here is my question. If I want to go back to the beginning and have a stock phone, do I need to follow this? I think I'm just too new to try rooting and I really don't want to ruin my phone. I've had hacks for my BlackBerry and iPod Touch in the past, but Android is a little more advanced than I'm used to, so unless someone walks me through every little thing, I think I'm better off just dealing with the phone stock lol

    Unless of course, this is able to get me rooted quickly, so I can get rid of the unwanted stock apps :-D (yes, I am impatient, but I'm female, give me a break lol)

    I'm confused. Are you rooted right now and want to unroot? Follow the link in my signature. Or do you want to root easily? Follow the other link in my signature. Females can do this just as well as men- I promise!

    That's the whole thing. I don't know if I am rooted or not. I have the Superuser app, but in the tutorial it says the HBOOT screen should say S-OFF, and it doesn't. So I tried to re-run unrevoked and it gives me an error saying my software could be too new, or something along that line.

    Did you follow Doug's instructions to flash s-off?

    Download http://downloads.unrevoked.com/forev...ed-forever.zip somewhere you will remember and transfer it to the root of your SD card (not in any folders).

    Go to recovery by powering on while holding the volume down button and select recovery (you may have to choose bootloader first; select option by pressing power button). Scroll down to choose install zip from SD card, select it by hitting the main button, find the unrevoked-forever.zip, select it, and let it do its thing.
