    mount -o remount,rw -t rfs /dev/stl12 /system
    rm -f /system/bin/su
    rm -f /system/xbin
    rm -f /system/app Superuser.apk


    type those into terminal emulator, it will remove all traces of root

    Im not sure what kind of issues Blue was having, but when I got mine rooted. I noticed that dl'ing apps from the market was taking FOREVER. So I ran 4 different speedtest.net tests and my avg for the 4 tests was something like 118/150 with a max of ~180/220. I couldnt figure out what the issue was, so I unrooted mine (thank you shabby!!) and ran a few more speedtests with them being 550/350 and 351/185 for the first two.

    For whatever reason, having the phone rooted slowed the shit out of mine. Only things that I did was install a few root app, remove bloatware.

    Might try again tomorrow, maybe it was just an iffy rootjob.

    Download a terminal emulator then try.

    When i tried the command
    mount -o remount,rw -t rfs /dev/stl12 /system
    doesn't seem to work (operation not permitted)
    and i cannot delete su because its read only.

    Any other suggestions on unrooting?

    Removing root is giving me a bit of a problem. Not sure why but this is what it says when I type in the first command.



    Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory

    Any ideas why?
  11. Had Da Same Problem Un-rooting... With A Lil Playing Around I Got It Removed...
    Jus Type Mount in terminal emulator 1st. Then Type Remount rw . Which Changes The System Permissions To Read & Write. Then I Removed Each File & Folder Listed Above With Root Explorer... Or Yo Can Use The Rm Commands Above. Both Work... Root Gone... Rebooted Phone... Also Noticed That /dev/stl12 /system Wasn't Located Anywhere On My Phone Maybe A Typo.... I DUnnO! Hope This Helps Out...

    A fix to ShabbyMods coding above (props to him)

    Type in your terminal emulator:

    1) su

    2) mount

    3) remount rw

    4) rm /system/bin/su

    5) rm /system/app/Superuser.apk

    This worked for me perfectly and I hope it does for you as well. TIP: I removed -f in the code and removed the rm /system/xbin as you will have root removed all the way after a reboot from doing step 1-5.

    you can use odin multi download. thats how i did it but that wont fix your 3g. i got mines to work but idk how. i was playing around with the dial menus. i noticed the settings for browser were blank and some other ones i dont remember.

    You can use the Multi Odin as a fix but to do a solid removal of root, I would highly recommend anyone to do it manually.

    If you use odin and stock unrooted, that is exactly as the phone came from the store.:p

    You can just use Odin and flash it back to an unrooted state.

    Or

    Use a root file explorer, mount /system as rw, then:
    1 delete superuser.apk from /system/app

    2 install super user from market (so it's a user app, the root explorer may not work without it, but the system is already mounted rw)

    3. Delete su binary (in system/bin)

    4. Uninstall superuser

    5. reboot
