    Are there any directions on unrooting a phone from 2.1?

    I see directions for 2.2 downgrade/unroot..

    I just don't want to install an unnecessary file that will brick my phone since I'm already 2.1

    (I tried to install the OTA with a rooted 2.1 and it did not work - now I am on 2.1 after rebooting with "system up to date" :( )

    all you really have to do to unroot is delete busybox, su, superuser.apk, and what ever the other file was off the phone.

    How do I do that? I went to manage applications and there is no option to uninstall the superuser application?

    I think I did it... Everything is wiped and it's downloading the 2.2 OTA again.

    LOL this is fun!!

    If I was a developer I would probably become a full fledged alcoholic.

    (After downloading and pressing install on the 2.2 OTA)

    ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.05
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    :(

    I'll try flashing another ZIP and see if that works.

    Hopefully I don't brick.

    Okay this time the PB31IMG worked when I loaded it onto my SD Card and restarted phone in HBOOT.

    It installed the stock 2.1 again.

    Now downloading the 2.2 OTA for the 3rd time..

    I think it's going to work this time! (probably not)
