    how to unroot my phone

    Hello. I bought an HTC rezound online because I am horrible with my phones and I lost my insurance with verizon for the time being. Anyways the phone works fine no issues. However my boyfriend and I have the same phone now and noticed that my phone does not have the same options his does and that the phone won't even allow me to personalize themes. I am assuming that the phone is rooted. Can someone give me step by step instructions on 1) to figure out whether or not the phone is actually rooted. 2) how to unroot the phone. From what I have been reading there locking the bootloader and unrooting are two seperate things. How do I know if my bootloader is locked or unlocked. Thank you for the help. I am sorry I am asking for detailed instructions but I do not want to risk bricking the phone and not being able to use it at all. Thank you!!

    1) Look for an app called superuser or super su . If it's there, the phone is more than likely rooted.

    2) To unroot the phone delete the app superuser or super su.

    2a) To check the bootloader, power down the phone, then power on holding power and Vol down. You will be presented with your bootloader screen, it should say *LOCKED* *UNLOCKED* or *RELOCKED* in the top left.

    Check the thread in my sig for instructions on how to root/ROM if you're interested.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    Thank you but I am not interested in "rooting" the phone but rather unrooting it back to factory settings are there instructions on that as well?

    Why on earth would you want to go to stock, stock is a lag fest.

    Relock and reinstall the RUU, simplest way possible. It will factory default your phone though... YOU MUST RELOCK BEFORE USING THIS METHOD!!! Failure to do so will likely result in bricking your phone.

    I understand that but Since I was not the person to unlock Ido.t know how to do this. Also the reason we want tp go back to stock is bc it won't even let us do simple things like go into personalize and change themes and stuff. Everytime we try it says this application has force stopped and doesn't let us in.
