    Question about un-rooting

    Phone keeps crapping out and Ive tried everything I know. Verizon said they will send me a droid 4 for free so im taking it.

    I have to send this one back so I am curious as to how I unroot. If i clear everything, return to non-safe mode, load my non-safe back up and then clear everything again, will that break root?

    Trying to decide on my next phone. I am torn between the DNA and the SGS3.

    You can either sbf or unroot through motofail. Sbf is the best way.

    What base are you on? If you are on .906 you can use the one-click method by Overlayer. You can find it linked in his posts in the development section.

    Overlayer has an .sbf for both. I believe both are posted in the DROID 3 rom section. Sorry I don't have the link.

    ok. pretty sure i found everything i need.

    Im just a little lost, i thought I could just reverse the process that i did to root the phone because I thought pete's root tool (or whatever it is called) came with a 1-click unroot feature

    Pete's doesn't work with 906. Motofail has an unroot option if I recall correctly.

    ok. I know the phone was on .890 before i rooted but the ROM i have installed is based off .906. So if i went back to non-safe mode and flashed my back up from when I rooted the phone would I be on .890 or .906?
