    the OTA will definitely UNROOT the phone. It does leave your apps, and settings in place. So you'll want to remove SU. Other than that, technically you should be fine. I've returned a few phones back after rooting and then applying flash back files. They shouldn't really tell the difference unless there is an obvious flag.

    so what i was going to do is unfreeze everything that i have frozen, then unroot it.
    will me unrooting it delete super user and the other apks installed? or will i have to do that manually?

    once you unroot, I believe you have to manually uninstall the apps, but honestly, I haven't done it, so I dont know. Try it, The apps dont give you root technically. But, if the dev was smart enough he would have written the scripts to remove all root related files. Try it, probably wont hurt. report back your findings for the rest of us. :)

    so I used the one click root and before I did that I just removed titanium backup, root explorer, bootstrap and any other root dependent apps. then I unrooted it and it deleted superuser for me and the other 2 apks. it was fine after that, but to make sure I did a factory restore. the first time it didn't reset my phone completely, but on the 3rd time it asked me for the backup assistant pin and stuff. also when I did a factory restore I didn't delete the stuff on the sd card be cause I wanted to restore some setting from it, but it ended screwing up my sd card, not allowing me to read it or format it on my computer. however I rebooted my droid and the put the card back in, and it asked me to format the card. and that worked
