Default Any easy way to unroot?

Rooted with motofail and I have 5.9.902. I don't care about roms and I never used one (only rooted for the ps3 controller) so how can I unroot my phone if needed?

Is there something easy like petes one click unroot?

the only way i know to unroot is to flash the fxz file, but that erases everything.

Uprooting is simple. Install es file explorer. Turn on root mode and enable system partition read/write. Then delete /system/app/superuser.apk and /system/bin/su or xbin/su

Root is just one tiny file in the bin directory. Nothing mysterious.

You can also flash the modified 5.9.902 fxz file I posted in http://androidforums.com/bionic-all-things-root/480176-how-flash-5-5-893-5-9-902-rsdlite.html . It will restore you back to stock while saving all your data.

I believe that rooting also installs busybox in /system/xbin/busybox.

You'd also want to restart after deleting those files.
