    So I need to send my phone back to verizon so obviously i'm going to unroot it.

    I installed 2.2 on it and everything is wiped off of there except for "SuperUser". How can I remove this/unroot the phone so verizon doesn't fuss.

    I can't find the file to flash it back with (.sbf?). I downloaded 1 and browsed for it in RSD light but I couldn't hit start.

    The way I did it was downloaded the 2.2 zip and then put it in the root of my SD card and changed the name to 'update.zip' and rebooted into recovery mode and updated it.

    Well I just tried it.

    I opened up RSD Lite 4.6, browsed to the FRG22D.SBF file (on my desktop), I hit start, it gives me a "Failed flashing process. Failed flashing process. (0x7100);phone connected".

    I moved the file to the root of the C: drive and browsed for it but the 'start' button was grayed out. I got the same results when I moved it to the D Drive (Same hard drive, different partition).

    Suggestions?

    is your phone fully booted up or are you in the boot loader?

    To get into the bootloader you need to reboot the phone then while its booting up press up on the D-Pad.

    once in the bootloader RSD lite should load the file fine.

    I'm in the bootloder. I don't think RSD Lite will recognize my phone if it's fully booted up.
