    Unroot and Remove Recovery from DROIDX Via RootExplorer

    Unrooting and Removing ClockWorkMod Recovery from DROIDX Via RootExplorer

    This information is a repost by me for those who wish to go back 100% stock no root/no recovery.
    This Unrooting and Removal method was made known to me by our own 928droid. (Thanks Dave)

    The usual disclaimers apply...You do this at YOUR OWN RISK. I am not responsible for bricked handsets nagging wives, global warming or any other "fists shaking at the heavens" that may arise.

    Before proceeding with this process uninstall Bootstrap and clockworkmod rom manager and reboot.

    First you will need RootExplorer.(I can't verify this method with any other file explorer.)


    Open RootExplorer (During this process DO NOT navigate out of the application)

    Navigate to system then to bin (system/bin) and delete the following: (If you get a "can not delete error" change the permissions in the upper left rw/ro.)

    1. hijack
    2. logwrapper
    3. busybox
    4. su

    Now while in system/bin find logwrapper.bin long press and rename to logwrapper (deleting .bin)

    Now that we are done in system/bin back out to system and enter system/xbin to check for any duplicate copies of su or busybox.

    Once you have verified that these files are no longer there back out to system and enter system/app and delete the superuser.apk

    Finally exit RootExplorer and enter settings/privacy/ reset device

    Once completed you should be root/recovery free. Thanks again to 928Droid for the information provided to make this post.

    Hope you guys find this as helpful as I did.

    Let it be known that this is for the droid X and possibly the droid 2 (I can't verify this as it might use a different method, but afaik it doesn't). This will not remove the recovery on the droid 1, incredible, and many other android phones since the reocvery is in a different partition.

    Hi Tank,

    Hence the reason it was posted in Droid X hacks .. LOL

    Will also work on Droid 2 the same way.

    Those other "lesser" phones you mentioned we don't worry about over here .... HA, HA,, J/K!!!

    Sunder,

    You should add the step of uninstalling Droid X Boot Recovery (and ROM Manger if installed to be sure) First, then Reboot before starting that procedure.

    Lesser???:icon_evil:

    rofl. I'm just hoping that when it comes time to upgrade my next phone gives me the same level of satisfaction my D1 has been giving me all this time. I've got a feeling it will be tough to beat that as there is a lot of expectation there. The D1 is my first smart phone though, and they do say you never forget your first.

    So you thought you would try to stop them :)

    Ha, Ha, Trust me there is nothing wrong with a Droid 1, I have had one since November and it was fantastic (still have it, well my wife does)....BUT "keeping it real"....well I better stop there... :)

    Have a great night, and rest of the weekend!

    Oh Tank,,, as you get older, you will learn you can't keep some people from doing ...well, "dumb" things...no matter how hard you try to keep them from it!

    BTW, Congrats on the "Blue Jacket", it looks good on you!! :)

    Cheers,

    help-stuck in clockworkmod

    Total noob. Used rootmyx2 and got root fine but every other phone startup boots into clockworkmod. I tried unrooting with rootmyx2 and this didn't fix the clockwork mod bootup.

    Just want to make sure but will this method fix my clickworkmod boot problem? And could someone let me know what step restores the regular recovery mode? The phone has to go back to Verizon and obviously needs to be clean. (Droid X, official 2.2 upgrade.)

    (In looking I found a similar but different and more complicated method here when undoing a different root process: http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x-hacks/1586-how-un-root-droid-x.html)

    Did you uninstall Droid X Bootstrapper and Rom Manager before following the procedure in post 1? If not start over.

    waiting to try

    Sorry, just nervous about trying and worried that my root method changed things. And I just didn't know which step restored the old system recovery. I'll give it a shot.
