    So i have been searching through the all things root forum and i am unable to come to a conclusion. I recently rooted or did the unrevoked 3 onto my phone. the question i have is once sprint releases Froyo for our phones will i be able to do the ota if it comes out that way, or manually whichever they do? or will i be stuck with having to put a froyo rom onto my phone seeing as i am unable to "unroot".

    Also if someone knows how to "unroot" once youve used unrevoked 3 I could use that to. Ive also looked into doing that but have been unlucky in finding a solution if i want to "unroot".



    Thanks in advance for any helpful information. :)

    You should wait until a developer converts the OTA into a ROM for the rooted phones. If you have root now, you would keep root. Not so with the OTA.

    You can however do a full factory reset by flashing your phone with a stock ROM. It undoes the root, NAND unlock, etc (I think). I tried to root and it didn't work for me so I just reflashed the stock ROM I found on XDA forums and my phone worked perfectly fine. I got the OTA update (the one that started bricking phones) without a problem.

    So once the RC comes out, just reflash your phone to stock ROM and then get the OTA to 2.2. You will lose your root and anything else you did to your Evo though.

    I used this thread over at AndroidCentral.com to unroot my phone when I did something horribly wrong while trying to root my phone.

    I just tried going backwards with the ruu for version 1.47 which is what i have. when it displays the version it's on and what it's flashing to they both say 1.47 and then the thing fails.

    any ideas?

    I thought the recent OTA broke the root? meaning if you had rooted with unrevoked i went back to stock. Wouldnt it be the same when sprint pushes another update or froyo?

    The update did break root. It taught a lot of us noobs that when rooted, do not accept OTA updates. Wait for one that matches what you are running.

    cool, so hopefully when sprint pushes the almighty foyo it will just go straight over unrevoked, that would be great so i can stop worrying thanks everyone.

    I'm a noob, but I do remember seeing that if you were fully rooted, the phone doesn't see itself as eligible for an update. The original unrevoked was less thorough and that could have been part of the issue.

    I could be wrong...but the real thing is to say I do not know how to turn off notifications on updates.

    Lookie what I found :)
