    Just looking at helping people with a combination of threads from other forums to help users un-root.

    Apps I am using, and if you don't mind spending some money.
    (Let me say this, this made it so far beyond easy to reinstall system apps AS system apps, that I just took the jump to buy them)

    Didn't we overwrite the orignal su? Doesn't that have to be put back?

    Why don't people just install superuser.apk from market or sd? That way it is registered properly vs droping it in behind the scenes?

    The Original SU???

    If there was a SU why would we not use it??

    I am sure someone else could tell you a more in depth explanation, but, I am sure there is ALOT more to it then just DLing from the market.

    Well the su we installed asks superuser.apk for permission. They are a matched pair from xda. We need both. Im wondering about the stock android su.

    If it isn't in a "What you will need for un-rooting" guide, I am guessing it is still there then?? The SuperUser.apk file is just slipping through cracks of the security for the stock SU to be used by the end user.

    You know take what I am saying about all this SU stuff with a grain of salt, I mean, I may be right, but also, I am not a knowledgeable person when it comes to this kind of Android talk. lol

    I was just trying to post a guide to help kids out.. :p

    Part of this is because I'm trying to work out a way for root to persist through the 2.2 ROM load.
