    Will this also remove the OTA updates?

    Probably, but it would just be downloaded OTA again.

    Does rooting the phone void the warranty at all? I guess the question here is, can Sprint tell if your phone was once rooted before?

    Thanks

    yes it voids the warranty, no they can't tell it has been rooted IF you return to stock using the RUU

    Yeah, same here. Card kept showing up as empty shortly after reboots. It would work fine for a bit, but then get goofy. Ill give it a day before going back to stock. Thanks for the help here guys.

    So if I use this this to revert back to stock, I have to change the file name to 1.23.651.1?

    Is there a way to back up your current rom? I haven't rooted my phone yet and would like a rom that I know is secure.

    After I have rooted the phone did an auto update of the latest software update. First it download the software and rebooted the phone. While rebooting picture of a harddisk imagecame and after sometime there was red question mark on top of the hardisk image. Thephone started , it was working. But when I tried to update the software again it says the software is corrupted and to download again. I would like to go back to the original version before rooting.

    I downloaded [ROM]RUU_Supersonic_1.32.651.1_Radio_1.39.00.04.26 - xda-developers as per your suggestion. Can you please let me know a step by step by process as to get back to the original state. I am a newbie.

    Thanks for your help

    Raj

    Also wanting to go back stock, however, downloaded the file, run it, and I keep getting USB connection errors, on two different computer, even downloaded the HTC Sync Pack to get the USB Drivers, and nothing. Any ideas?

    The only thing you need your usb for is to get the stock "PC36IMG.zip" onto your sd card. There is a few threads over at xda devolpers with a stock/ sim-stock non-rooted rom download you can use. Once on the sd card, just make sure the file name is "PC36IMG.zip", reboot by holding I "think" vol. down and power. Wait few seconds, and it should ask if you want to uodate, say yes. after its done updating, it should ask if you want to reboot, say yes. Now your back to stock. Horray! Also, if your phone does not start flashing by itself after about a minunite, there should be a option to power down. After powering down, hold vol. up and power, this should fix it... My phone is not in front of me to try right now, sorry for the inconvinces this may cause. Good luck and I am not responsible for the bricking of any phones.... try at your own risk....

    Out of curiosity, what (if any) is the significance of the name PC36IMG.zip or does it matter what the name is as long as it ends in zip.

    Also, is the "RUU_Supersonic_1.32.651.1_Radio_1.39.00.04.26_release_171253.exe" the same thing as the PC36IMG.zip, just applied to the phone differently?

    in the hboot screen do you have an option to go to recovery? if you do then you can either restore a nandroid or flash another rom.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have S-ON, then you just need to load a Sprint RUU onto the root of your SD card with the name of PC36IMG.zip and then load up the bootloader and update.
