    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ok so there are two steps to unroot:
    1.flash the s-on tool. do you have s-on?
    2.install stock recovery and stock rom via PC36IMG file. here is the tricky part as you have to name it correctly for hboot to recognize it. it needs to be named PC36IMG. do not add a ".zip" to the name if you are using windows as windows hides extensions. and you have to be in hboot(bootloader). power off then press and hold power+vol down and select yes to update.

    if you do those steps correctly, you should be unrooted. out of curiosity why are you unrooting? if it is for the ota, you can just flash a stock rooted ota.

    you do not have to remove anything, just do not add an extra ".zip" to the name. so just rename it to PC36IMG with no ".zip" and place on the root of your card and you are good to go.

    oh and yeah and welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what is your hboot? and which PC36IMG file did you use? it needs to be the one that matches your hboot.

    no worries, glad it worked. just hope that it does not come updated already. if it does then you will have to wait. also let the sprint tech know that you do not wanted it updated.
