1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have what appears to be an XT926 (according to the "System version")
    Running Android version 4.1.1

    Which root method/thread do I follow?

    I will be trying that method later. I have not downloaded or looked at it, but is an Un rooting method included as well? I am only concerned with the warranty if something goes bad in later in the phone and Verizon using it as a convenient excuse.

    I read here:

    ROOT for Razr HD - xda-developers

    That " You can manually unroot your Droid by using a root file manager program (such as root explorer) and mountsystem as R/W. Then delete the following:

    /system/app/Superuser.apk
    /system/bin/su
    and if it has it
    /system/xbin/su"


    Is this true?

    that would remove root, "su" is the program that runs to provide root access to the system and superuser.apk is the program that manages access to SU so you can control what apps can and can not use it.

    But would this work for a warranty replacement? Or could they tell the phone was rooted?
