Newbie looking for some help to unroot phone!
So a little back story, I had an old android phone, broke it and decided to get a new one. I didn't want to pay 400 bucks for one so I looked at craigslist to find one. I found a pretty decent phone, the seller seemed OK too. I called him, met up with him and bought the phone.
The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S i9000
Only NOW did I realize it was rooted. Please don't bash on me for that, I'm fairly new to it and wasn't paying attention and wanted a phone quickly and was very inpatient. So yes, I kind of hate myself for it, so no need to bash on the stupidity that is me. -_-
Anyways, I don't really know much about rooting. The only thing I know is that the phone I got is rooted to run Jellybean (?) and it should run something lower so my battery life SUCKS.
I have a couple questions: Should I leave it rooted? Is it good to have it rooted? What are the benefits to unrooting it? SHOULD I unroot it? Will it hurt my phone to unroot it? Will it be better to leave it unrooted? And if it is better to unroot it, HOW the hell do I unroot this thing xD?
Sorry for so many questions :/ but I really need to know.
Thanks for anyone in advance for helping me!
