  3. go to your terminal and run adb

    here are the commands you need to un-root
    adb shell
    su
    rm -r /system/app/Superuser.apk
    rm -r /system/xbin/busybox
    rm -r /system/bin/su

    Or you could just do what the mod posted :D

    You wouldn't have to worry about wiping any important info off your phone that way.
     
  5. To put it more specifically if you are keeping the phone the best way is what I had listed, if your returning the phone to the store you would want to do what 2FR35H suggested...

    This is how you do it on a PC it may be slighlty different for mac but its the same idea.

    Hook up the phone go to command prompt then type in the location of adb tools then hit enter a list of commands should pop up as well as info on the device if its connected then type in adb shell then hit enter then continue on with the commands and make sure at the end of every line of command you hit enter. Then after that you should be good.
     
  11. Yes, and was posted in the same post where I asked if you had adb installed

    this is the link : Android Debug Bridge | Android Developers
