    I've been trying to unroot my phone to take it in for service. I am using Unrevoked Forever and S is Off. I tried unrooting using this method The Droid Demos Forum • View topic - [GUIDE] How to Unroot the EVO in 2 STEPS

    I tried applying the zip from Recovery but when i click on the zip file it quickly displays the status at the bottom and it disappears. It does not show the process of the zip being applied. I am using ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.0.1 I dont know if this has anything to do with it but it seems like its the problem. Is there a way that i can remove ClockworkMod and apply another Recovery? Or do anyone have a better method?

    I used the ruu.exe, but you can download rom manager, and it will flash ra recovery and try that and see if it helps

    The reason that this happened is because you flashed unrevoked forever. This will maintain S-OFF even if you unroot. The only way to get S-ON is to flash the S-ON zip in your custom recovery. Since you already unrooted, you now have the stock recovery. What you need to do is use unrevoked 3 (not 3.21) to get back root and a custom recovery, then flash the S-ON file in recovery. After this, it is safe to unroot and you will be back at stock.

    If you are stock, you can just take an OTA update from Sprint.

    is unrevoked forever included in unrevoked 3.21? if its not then i did not use unrevoked forever.
