    I was trying to apply a Zagg Invisible Shield for the second time,When i applied the whole body shield,i noticed the touch screen would not respond to my finger/it would touch random items by itself.I took the screen off and it is still doing that.So i guess im going to go to Verizon to get a replacement but i forgot i was rooted.To unroot can I just install the 2.2 "Update.zip" through recovery and i will lose root right?But would the kernel still be the "rooted" kernel and would i have to change that to default?

    Open Rom Manager, Make sure you flash ClockworkMod Recovery, then go to Download ROM, open Stock Images, from there flash Verizon Droid 2.0.1 Stock or Verizon Droid 2.1 Stock (either one is fine). - Bam you are back to stock. Enjoy.

    You might consider first doing a factory reset to see if the touchscreen starts working again. The verizon store may try that anyway before they decide to get you a refurbished one.

    Or grab the 2.1 SBF and flash with RSDLite.

    lol its not that bad I'm sure the way I said it or others suggested can unroot your device.

    No I don't =/

    Yeah I forgot I could do that but I have DM and from the DM app I could of done the same thing but then again my touchscreen doesn't work.Would flashing a stock also flash the kernel?

    Oh and btw I fixed it I'm sure it was a software problem rather than a hardware one.I flashed to 2.1 from recovery and then back to my rooted mod and it started working again :)
