    Well i suppose he could "unroot" by flashing the stock recovery after flashing a froyo rom, but thats pushing it a little bit on the definition of root.

    If you have an intact Nandroid backup of your original ROM, that's all you need to do to get a ROM which operates in "factory-like" behaviors.

    If you are returning the phone because of a warranty issue, and you want it to be "pure as the driven snow" - no trace of rooting activity, then use the RUU or install the Leak-V3 ROM.


    ps this thread belong in the "All Things Root Section", not here.
