    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.

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

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