    is there any way to unroot my phone without losing data? i know exactly how to root and get it back to stock, but i realize this deletes all my apps. i know i can just redownload them from the market, but i dont want to go through all the trouble of setting all mynotification settings for like handcent, and locale, and stuff like that. is there update.zip that allows me to go back to nonroote 2.0.1 and have it appear just the way it was before i rooted? (with my apps and all my stuff still on it?)

    Are you running a custom ROM? If so, which one? Or are you basically stock with root access?

    Yes.
    Unroot & Back To Stock | Root Your Droid
    That guide will walk you through it. Removes su, super user app, busybox, custom recovery, root, and restores stock apps, but won't delete your data or apps.
