    Ok guys, I rooted by droid X a while back but didn't liked it or didn't see any substantial improvements in the phone. Any way how I can unroot it again and bring it back to 2.2? Thanks.

    Thanks. When I typed rm /system/app/Superuser.apk in the 3rd step, it says

    rm /system/app/Superuser.apk: not found

    Also, are there spaces between the commands? I am kinda confused :s

    Go under your apps on the phone and look for app called superuser.

    Hit the up arrow at bottom of screen between the call and ? ..Then look for app superuser. If it's gone then move on to next step.

    What he said ^^^^ plus, be sure to use a capital S. And yes - there are spaces in the commands.

    Thanks. I think it worked. How can I be sure that my phone is unrooted now? Is there a way to check that?

    Try to run wireless tether app. It will say it cannot work because your phone is not rooted.

    One other way is to download terminal app from market place it's free and does not need root. type SU if it says you don't have permissions your unrooted.
