    Well, last night I rooted my Droid. After realizing that there's nothing I really care to do via rooting my phone I unrooted it. Being the person I am, I completely forgot to remove busybox. I then re-rooted my phone, removed all the files I could see that the busybox install added and then proceeded to unroot. (Removing icon)

    Busybox no longer worked on my phone, nor did su. Think I'm good if I ever needed to claim my warranty or insurance on my phone..?

    I also deleted /system/xbin as that directory was not there before I rooted my phone.

    Did you remove the Superuser Permissions app?

    Yep! Replaced the apps I hid as well. To the naked eye and anyone that knows their way around a *nix cli it looks pretty clean as well.

    Edit: BusyBox is the one I was worried about. Here are the files and directories I removed:

    /system/bin/busybox/
    /system/xbin/busybox
    /system/xbin/
    /data/busybox/ (My first attempt at installing...)
