    I used unrevoked to root my phone. Is there a easy way to unroot it?

    Thanks for your help. I am going to try this. I only know the basic stuff when it comes to rooting but I will see what I can do. I have the 0.79.0000 so it looks like it will be more difficult for me. Anyone recently done this the way on the front of the forum that was posted? Any problems?

    So I unrooted my phone by flashing back to Sprint's Stock ROM (PC36IMG.zip). Is there anything I should look for that I need to know before sending back to Best Buy. Anything that they could see on the phone itself that would notify them that this phone has been rooted before? It's going back because the phone keeps randomly rebooting and going into boot loops. I have to ship it to a repair center, and if they can't fix it, then they'll send me a new one. Please advise. Thanks!

    Just make sure you have S-ON in hboot and you delete all the root files from your sd card (ie. Roms/kernels, nandroids, and then any folders like clockwork or titanium) Other than that you should ne good to go!

    Edited because I am a ratard. Thanks flyj!

    I just got my phone back from best buy. I left mine rooted ;) I flashed a stock de-odexed rom tho before just in case(only rom I had and it wasn't a current version). hell the one main sales rep there knows my phone is rooted and everytime I'm there I hear someone say root,jailbreak or unlock. I don't think they really care... lol

    my receipt said manufacturers warranty on it too, even with insurance from them.

    what's wrong with your phone? I wouldn't be too worried unless you think they might not be able to fix it. and thats only if they had to actually send the phones back to htc.

    do you have insurance with bestbuy? remember to keep your memory card, battery and battery cover.

    they should be keeping their memory cards. no need to delete anything.
