I'm about to start the unrooting steps based on the awesome guide above (you guys are fantastic for laying that all out like that!) But here's my question, my Evo has been rooted for 2 years. I just got a new phone and want to give this one to my kid, but even when I wiped the data, it won't wipe my gmail account. This obviously won't work as he can't load his own contacts, etc. Do I need to unroot (I'm assuming Method 1 from above) in order to get my gmail account off this phone? I don't really care if he gets a rooted phone or not, at least that's not my priority. I just want all my stuff off this phone, so it will be like a new phone for him. Any advice is VERY appreciated! Thanks!
