    So I used the sholes app to root. I decided that wasn't going to work out well for me. I unstalled the rom. Went back to a signed copy of 2.0.1

    So the question is how do I get rid of the super user permissions app logo. that i can't figure out.

    Before flaming me. take a look at my logo. I am an admin here so be gentle :icon_ devil:

    The sholes app should have been able to take you back to stock (unrooted). At least it says it will.

    I hope to be a Moderator when I grow up :)

    There's a thread "how to un-root the easy way" that should do the trick... I'm on my droid so it'll take me 5 times longer to find it. Just search and it should come right up

    Apparently you can't Administer your ROMS...lets hope you can Administer on DF better. LOL.

    Hope your issues are resolved. Thankfully when I went back to stock it appears my Super User icon also disappeared.

    You could try a FDR. See if that does the trick.

    OK well if you are interested in troubleshooting it, can you go to the terminal (from market) and enter

    su (allow if it comes up)
    cd /system/app
    ls

    If this set of code works it means you are still rooted. Also, the superuser.apk file should come up in the list that "ls" shows you

    All you need to do is re-root your droid and open up terminal emu and type in these commands:

    It's pretty simple. Especially if you use this guide to re-root your droid Obtaining Root | Root Your Droid

    Thanks, I was getting to telling him that step after I found out whether his root was still on there or not :) haha, saved me from typing the code out on my Droid, takes a bit longer than on a PC

    You can also return pretty easy using the update.zip process. Obtain a virgin update.zip apply it in the Recovery screen (Hold the x key and the power key while rebooting, if its the stock recovery you will have to hold the up volume and camera button if you have the ! screen.). Select "apply sdcard:update.zip" after that select "wipe cache partition". You can also "wipe data/factory reset" If your concerned about getting an OTA update (not sure if the "update cache partition" will reset the OTA update block).

    Make sure you backup all your apps before hand, never know what might go wrong... :)

    I tried a fresh cop of the update last night. I still have the SU icon though. I know i can use ADB (I think) to remove it but i was hoping there was a "better" (meaning easier) way.

    Looks like at some point if I want it gone i'll need to send my device to a friend or learn to use adb myself

    The important part here is clearing the cache partition, have you done this? If you have'nt you will have gone back to 2.0.1, but you will still be rooted. The permissions settings are held in the cache partition. If you have tried this, I might re-root, install the 2.1 apk then try reverting again being careful to follow all the steps. If you still cant get rid of SU, you will have to do a factory/data wipe. :wacko:

    I have pretty much no life so if you have any trouble PM me...maybe we can chat on AIM or something.

    I don't have a windows machine so I can't use ADB...if you download android terminal emulator from the market, anything you can do on ADB you can physically do on your droid, just type in the codes verbatim, leaving out the ADB part, start with su to switch to superuser and go from there following instructions. If that sounds more complicated I apologize :) just trying to let you know your options!
