    Just I case I don't want to be rooted anymore or I need to return the phone or something, how do I unroot? I rooted with z4root and I know there's an unroot button, but I want to know what I should do with my root apps? And how do I clock back to normal speed?

    I believe Jrummy put a restore default option in that app. Going by what I've seen on my gf's D2.

    What about droid2 bootstrapper. That's the only thing im really worried about because I read in another thread that it caused problems for them. I haven't installed any roms or anything. The only thing I used it for was to change my boot logo back to stock. Can I just uninstall the app?

    Or can I just keep all my root apps and not use them just incase I decide to root again? Will that cause any problems?

    The only one that I know would cause any issues would be superuser. Just curious, why do you want to unroot?

    I don't, I just wanted to know from the beginning when I first start with rooting so I don't have to panic if I need to get it replaced or whatever. Just safety precautions I guess
    What would superuser do? Can't I just uninstall it?

    Oh ok gotcha! It would cause a problem when trying to root again so uninstalling it would be a good idea.

    So if I set my clocking back to stock, and uninstall superuser im good to go? Can I keep other root apps for re-rooting later?

    Not sure, but if you left those apps installed and took into verizon for a warranty they might catch on that you had been rooted, even if you arent at the time.

    +1! Plus, they could cause a lot of FC's too.

    Okay. What if it was just to unroot for any other reason, e.g. a problem of some sort, Idk. Could I still keep them? Or just uninstall and reinstall when rerooted?

    If you're unrooting for other purposes you don't need to worry about it. At least not imo.

    Seems like all your questions have been answered, but I'll respond anyways since I have experience with this.

    I've sent a Droid 1 and Droid 2 back in the last few months. The first time I unrooted manually, and I did a factory reset when I was done. The second time I unrooted using the z4root app, and then did a factory reset before sending it back. both times went fine and they never found out. I would personally always do a factory reset before sending your phone to verizon not just to eliminate any traces of being rooted, but for security purposes.

    Good luck!
