    Is it possible to "unroot" your phone so you can receive OTA updates from Verizon again? I have a rooted phone with OTA disabled, busybox, edited YouTube (high quality), and hacked status bar graphics...

    Would simple restoring factory settings and applying Verizons 2.0.1 update "unroot" my phone to stock?

    Thanks :)

    Sorry if this has been asked, I couldnt find the answer.

    Manually update to 2.0.1, then rename your otacerts.zip.bak to otacerts.zip.
