    I am trying to unroot my D2 but for some reason my z4 root app is missing. Hen I try and download it again it keeps telling me my phone didn't support that app. Any idea why and what I need to do.

    To install apps that are not on the market that must be unchecked. Did you root only or did you root and use bootstrap recovery.

    I found it from a thread on here. I found it and reinstalled it now thanks. I did use the bootstrap recovery bit I tried to reinstall my stock settings and it said something like the file was empty.

    If you used bootstrap, the fastest and BEST way to get back to stock, especially if you sending ot back to vzw, will be to do a sbf.

    this is true, the bootstrap sometimes gets a little sticky and hangs around after you delete it.

    Right, see bootstrap app renames the logwrapper file and unrooting dont fix the system file, it just prevent you from having access to the system folder. Now you can technically rename it back to what is was suppose to be. But if you are going to go back to factory the best thing to do is to use sbf. See sbf rewrite your system folder back to factory which is how you bought it. And that is why I recommend any one who has tampered with the system folder to do an sbf before returning it back to motorola.
