    - open your trusty terminal app
    - you should see a $ symbol, now do the following
    - su
    - now you should see a # symbol
    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - rm /system/bin/su
    * rm /system/bin/busybox
    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - reboot your phone. Toda, no more root

    Unrooting DX w/2.2

    Soo sorry in advance for my paranoid question... I obtained root using the android sdk and placing "doroot" into the tools folder of android sdk. Worked great, but then realized that I wanted to be able to unroot if need be for warranty purposes, plus I impulsively did all this THE FIRST DAY OF HAVING THE PHONE! (I got overconfident rooting my D1, and figured I could do this). SO here's my questions... I just don't want to mess anything up!

    Does this unroot method work regardless of how root was obtained?
    Also, just to make sure I am not messing things up... I enter the text in the terminal emulator EXACTLY as shown above? Ie. the spaces, and all? I am assuming that the "*" that appears at the beginning of line 8 is supposed to be a "-" ? and the "mount -o ro" on line 9 is correct and not supposed to look like the "mount -o rw" on line 5? :icon_eek:

    Its correct...rw-read write...ur mounting system as read write. Ro-read only...ur mounting system back to read only.
