    If you flash the sbf file listed using RSD lite it will remove the superuser permissions icon also.

    The only way I know how to get rid of that superuser icon is to flash the sbf file. I used it twice a couple of weeks ago when I had to return my phones to verizon and it works flawlessly. If someone knows another way maybe they can chime in but the link I gave you works perfectly and you will not have the icon there afterwards.

    Yes, you download RSD lite you your PC. You will flash the file from the bootloader screen. Just go step by step and it should go smoothly. The only issues I have heard are with people using windows 7 but I had no issue using vista or xp.

    I have had no problems with win7, but if you follow the directions given, you will have no issues.

    @xythil, there are ways to unroot your phone without using the very finicky RSD Lite.

    good luck

    yea until rsd decides that it is going to fail and not reboot your device for 10 minutes making you freak out for what feels like an eternity:icon_eek: but all is good now :)

    You will have to remove su and SUperuser.apk. You can unroot through droidmod updater 12 or sbf.
