    I'm wanting to root using z4 app have it installed but want to know, aside from sbf 'ing is there any way to unroot? Also if I do root will I be able to accept ota when /if we get it. Or will I have to do something special first?

    Open Z4 and when you root, make sure you do a permanent root. Don't worry because a temporary root just means you're rooted until you boot again. A permanent root just means you stay rooted, even after a reboot, until you decide to unroot yourself. And to do that you just pick the option to unroot the next time you open Z4 that will be there after you root. It's that easy.

    +1! Also, if you want to be able to accept an OTA:

    -As soon as you're rooted, go grab the DX Bootstrapper from the market
    -Open it
    -Choose "Bootstrap Recovery"
    -Allow SuperUser permission
    -Hit "Ok"at "Success!" pop-up
    -Select "Reboot Recovery"
    -You should now be in Clockworkmod Recovery
    -Use your volume keys to scroll to "Backup/Restore"
    -Press your camera button to select it
    -Press it again on "Backup" (Will take a few to finish - don't panic)
    -Once done, and if not already there, press your power button until "Reboot System Now" is highlighted
    -Press camera button to reboot

    Now that you've made a backup, its as simple as restoring said backup to take the OTA....hopefully, you'll be able to root again afterwards.

    Yup just click the root button, make a backup, and then start modding.

    If Z4 hangs or makes you nervous with taking a long time I have a "app pack" that has Superoneclick in there....it roots DX's in about 5 seconds. But you need a PC to do it.
