    How did he root?

    I know with Superoneclick you can unroot. I am unsure if it will unroot a gingerbreak root. Why not just unroot, then reroot? I have never seen mention of avoiding the activate app after rooting.

    Why not activate with the dialer.

    just wanted to make sure, I used gingerbreak just so that I could extend the apps space with linktosd and such. was going to be a game rig only, now he want to use it as a phone.


    just wanted to make sure before I got knee deep into it.

    The safest way to unroot is to flash the ZV9 update. It will totally return your phone to bone stock, with a stock recovery.
    Follow Petrah's ZV9 update guide in the All Things Root Guide sticky. After you've activated the phone and need to re-root with a custom recovery, just follow the rest of the guide.

    You can activate from stock rooted no problem. Harmonia and Rhode are 2 examples of rooted stock based roms that people activate from all the time Rhode was actually developed specifically for utility use since we can only activate from stock based froyo.
