    Use Z4root to obtain temporary root. Then again z4root to unroot. (Unrooting deletes the busybox binary, the su binary and the superuser.apk app from /system/app.

    Yes but its the apk that proves you're rooted which voids warranty. Better safe than sorry.

    I'd just say "superuser? So I'm not super?" Side note: can you install superuser.apk without root?

    Don't panic, be patient - try again. If it stays at "running exploit" for more than 5 mins, stop it and start again. Make sure phone is not connected to USB cable and USB debugging is enabled in settings.

    Superuser.apk gets installed in /system/app, which for normal users is a read-only directory. Having custom files in /system/apk is a 100% evidence phone has been rooted. VZ tech's know this very well. Returning it with this on the phone is like being caught by police with a smoking gun on the crime scene :)

    Unroot it with the manual way and then do a factory reset.

    Which unroot method are you using? Option 2d in the multiple phones link in my sig should get you where you need to be.

    Not if Root Explorer is still working... Or even just present. Any root-only app needs to go.
