I very recently bought an LG Ally and rooted it quite easily while on V8. I now plan on returning it to try and get a Droid X, but I would like to unroot the phone before doing so. Since I'm exchanging the phone and not returning it due to defects or damage, I doubt that they will check to see if it's rooted at all. I'm not even sure if they will care since there's actually nothing wrong with the phone compared to when I bought it. However, I would prefer to be safe than sorry. I successfully had the device rooted and working flawlessly. I've tried a method or two of removing root access, but it seems that every time I try something new, I dig myself a deeper hole. I currently have the, "Superuser Permission," icon left on my list of applications, and I can't seem to remove it. It also seems that I don't actually have root access anymore, even though the icon still exists. I've tried re-rooting in order to gain the access back, but I can't even get that back to normal. I've restored and reset to factory defaults a couple times, and I have even tried reversing the instructions that I followed to originally root the device. I've attempted to downgrade my software to V6, then upgrade to stock V8, but the updater freaked out on me and appeared corrupted. I've tried updating through the phone's settings, but apparently the most recent version isn't available as an OTA yet and I have to download it manually? Nothing has removed the icon. The only thing that I've lost is the actual root access, and I can't seem to get that back so that I can continue my attempts at removing it all completely. Will updating to V9 unroot my phone, remove the icon, and erase all visible traces of a previous root? I'm willing to try it, but I hear that one cannot re-root once they upgrade to V9. If that's true, then I would prefer to only do that as a last resort. If I upgrade to V9, can't re-root, and the Superuser Permission icon is still there, I believe I would be royally screwed over. Rooting Instructions that I decided to follow for original rooting, as well as once for re-rooting - I'm on Windows XP SP3. One set of instructions that I tried for re-rooting Un-root Attempt #1 Un-root Attempt #2 So here I am with my LG Ally, needing to return it, with the warranty technically voided right now and a Superuser Permission icon screaming to anyone who looks for it. If anyone needs any extra information about my system, phone, things that I've tried to do, etc. please ask and I will gladly tell you. Thank you for reading and especially for helping if you decide to do so. I greatly appreciate any help that anyone has to offer. EDIT: I forgot to mention that I do not have a Nandroid backup. I never created one previous to rooting my device. My fault, I know, but there's probably nothing that I can do about that now. Just trying to do whatever other options are available to me.
