Default How to unroot 2.1

Are there any directions on unrooting a phone from 2.1?

I see directions for 2.2 downgrade/unroot..

I just don't want to install an unnecessary file that will brick my phone since I'm already 2.1

(I tried to install the OTA with a rooted 2.1 and it did not work - now I am on 2.1 after rebooting with "system up to date" )

all you really have to do to unroot is delete busybox, su, superuser.apk, and what ever the other file was off the phone.

How do I do that? I went to manage applications and there is no option to uninstall the superuser application?

I think I did it... Everything is wiped and it's downloading the 2.2 OTA again.

LOL this is fun!!

(After downloading and pressing install on the 2.2 OTA)

ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.05
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E: failed to verify whole-file signature
E: signature verification failed
Installation aborted.



I'll try flashing another ZIP and see if that works.

Hopefully I don't brick.

Okay this time the PB31IMG worked when I loaded it onto my SD Card and restarted phone in HBOOT.

It installed the stock 2.1 again.

Now downloading the 2.2 OTA for the 3rd time..

I think it's going to work this time! (probably not)
