Check out section 7 of that link there to help you unroot. It should answer your question and any others you may have. If you still need any help, let us know.

Just a side note for curiosity, why do you wish to unroot?

There are stock ROMs out there you know. IOW, you can be totally stock and still be rooted.

Did you not make a nandroid of your stock rom after rooting? If you did, just restore that. Should be totally stock but rooted. If you didn't there is a handfull of stock roms out there.

Hi i am new here.
I have the mindcr ics Rom and i wish to unroot.
Is it possible to unroot and keep that Rom?
When i installed it, it deleted everything including my contacts,
will it do that if i unroot?

I wish to unroot ONLY so some apps work, which stream stuff.

If there is a way for those apps to work, them great!

Cheers,

the Cobbster.

Ps can you PM me answer as well as post here?
I don't know if i get notifications for new reply!

cheers!

Hello there Cobbster and welcome!
If you have some issues with apps not working, there is not really a need to unroot.
What are you having issues with?
It is alot easier to "fix" stuff when you are rooted

That's odd. I'll have to check that out when I'm on the computer. Do you have a link for that app?

not sure you might want to check over at xda and see if they have a work around or not. but on my rooted evo 4g lte, i do not seem to have any issues with apps that are installed.

I haven't had very few apps that couldn't run on rooted devices and "hide my root" was my work around.

They are mixed reviews in the market for it, but it worked for me on hiding/restoring su and su binary

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amphoras.hidemyroot

Edit:

GS2 rooted here, confirmed flixster definitely works while rooted without hiding binaries
