Default Unroot, sending back to VM No custom rom

So I rooted my phone, but did not flash the rom (seemed too complicated at the time) All I did was install gingerbreak and link to sd, only rooted to expand the internal memory for apps. I have to send the phone back for bluetooth reasons. Do I just unroot using gingerbreak? After I unroot, and uninstall gingerbreak can I use the factory reset option now? q

Hey japtony, I moved this to the All Things Root section. Thanks for understanding.

Just send back as it is. It doesn't really matter :P


You could install Harmonia, or update via ZV9 for stock.

Might brick the phone. It has happened to others who thought it thoroughly wiped everything and it didn't.

The safest way to thoroughly remove all of the root exploit is to use the ZV9 update.
A guide for this can be found in the All Things Root Guide sticky.
