    Hello all!

    so i have a few questions about unroot and such.

    first of im sure that most of you have heard that droid X and Droid Pro are getting legit gingerbread which means droid 2 is next in line.

    So first question is if i have a rooted droid 2 with a gingerbread rom on it will my phone get screwed up if i dont remove it before the OTA update?

    if so then how should i go about getting rid of all of it?

    will this work?

    rather worried
    thank you all!

    No it wont get screwed up. If you want to go back to stock you'll need to sbf. I'll post the thread you need to get the files from. Its good to know how to sbf before messing with any roms or mods.

    Yes If you sbf it will get rid of the rom and root. The sbf will take you back to stock, it would be like a brand new phone

    I don't know if anyone on a custom gb rom would able to receive the ota. You might be able to if you didn't remove any of bloatware
    But yes it would unroot.
