    I hope someone can help me..
    Heres the problem, I installed Z4 root for my sister rooted. She had the 2.2.1 updated already. After rooting i did a backup up with bootstrap. I did install rubix rom but i went back to original backup after some problems. So right now she has all her bloatware. She doesnt want to be rooted anymore so how do i uninstall bootstrap? Do i do it before hitting unroot button on Z4 or after? Also after unrooting can i do a factory reset to wipe everything off?

    I take no credit for these instructions and in fact I have no idea where they came from nor who orriginally wrote them










    "Removing Bootstrap Recovery:

    Removal from an Androidforums post:

    UNINSTALL the Recovery APK (Droid X Bootstrapper) in Settings, Applications
    Reboot
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    Reboot

    or

    1. Reroot
    2. Get root explorer in the market
    3. Uninstall the bootstrap app
    4. Go into root explorer to system/bin
    5. In top right corner tap r/w
    6. Delete the file called hijack
    7. Delete logwrapper
    8. Rename logwrapper.bin to just logwrapper
    9. Reboot and it should be gone.

    If this screws up you'll need RSD Lite"

    Im not familiar with the first option on the boostrap removal but i have messed with root explorer on my phone. Do you know if the root explorer option is relatively safe and reliable to use? Sorry for all the questions

    As long as you follow the directions precisely you'll be fine.
