    Hello All,

    At this point I do not know where to put this thread. I am in some need of assistance.. I was told to upgrade my droid to gingerbread which now I have to say I fully regret. Iam trying to unroot my phone because I really just want to put it back to factory settings. I do not have a pc and in my house hold i only have a mac.

    I do not think there is a way to unroot my phone back to factory settings with a mac. Please advise.

    Thanks

    You can flash back to stock. What phone do you have?

    If you can get into recovery then you can try a factory reset which will wipe all user data and info. But why do you want to unroot? What other issues are you having?

    i did the factory reset after selecting it it brought me to clockwork mod recovery. so from there i tried to do another data wipe/factory reset and all it does is brings me to a black loading screen with a hat..

    Why don't you try to restore a backup if you can get into clockwork?

    So you can get to clockwork (green letters) but not do anything? Use the camera or volume buttons to navigate

    I believe on the Inc you press in the joystick thing to select an item in recovery.
