    Hi all,

    I rooted my phone not too long ago but just don't see any point to keeping it really. I can do everything I want without root except deleting the annoying Sprint bloatware (Nascar, Qik, Sprint Zone, etc.) but even after deleting those apps I don't really feel that my battery life or phone experience has vastly improved.

    In fact, having my phone rooted just means that I have more work to do really...like installing updates such as 3.29.651.5. Quite frankly I would rather just get the OTA updates instead of going through the pain of installing everything manually. Not to mention that I don't really trust the crap people post on the internet anyway. How do I know that someone's custom ROM isn't stealing personal info from my phone while I use it?

    I'm thinking that I might just do the following:

    1. Run Unrevoked Forever S-ON to lock NAND again
    2. Reinstall all of the Sprint bloatware via adb (mount /system as rw, copy everything over to /system/app, and chmod it all to 644)
    3. Apply the 3.29.651.5 OTA update


    Has anyone else tried this to get back to an unrooted phone? I know I could do S-ON and then apply the PCIMG136.zip file or whatever, but that will blast all of my settings, apps, etc. I would prefer to retain everything and not have to reinstall/reconfigure my phone again if I can.

    Any thoughts?
