If I root to overclock, is it easy to unroot in the case of needing to return?

    After hearing all about this overclocking, I am REALLY wanting to overclock to 850 or 800, but if anything were to happen to my phone, I'd want to be sure I could return it with out the root.

    So is it really easy?

    Unroot & Back To Stock
    by Big Lou on Jan.21, 2010, under Guides, Root
    Though Root is a powerful tool that will allow you to do so much more with your Droid, sometimes people need to completely remove it. Whether you need to turn your phone in to get serviced or would like to revert back for personal reasons, removing all hacks is a relatively easy process. If you are wanting to turn back because you are having troubles, I understand the frustration, but I urge you to stay with it and learn all you can to improve your situation. However, I can’t stop everyone, and in some cases going back to stock is necessary.
    Stock is how the Droid came from the factory without Root or any hacks applied to it. Because obtaining Root goes against the Verizon Wireless TOS, if we were to have any problems with our phone that would require Verizon Servicing, we would obviously need to remove everything we’ve done. Fortunately, this guide will only target Root-specific files; no user data or Market apps will be deleted! Here is what will result from reverting back to stock:
    Removal of Superuser Permissions App
    Restore all default Verizon Apps
    Restore stock Recovery console/remove SPRecovery and Nandroid
    Remove Busybox
    Disable Root-required Apps
    Remove Root

    ^+1 that is the site I normally send people to. It's very straight forward and well done (very nub friendly). Just follow their guides and you'll be fine.
