    I was unrooting my phone using these steps from another forum:

    In terminal emulator type:
    su
    rm -r /system/app/Superuser.apk
    rm -r /system/xbin/busybox
    rm -r /system/bin/su

    Somehow my finger slipped after typing rm -r /system/ and I hit the return key. Is there any way to restore the original system? I've already tried rebooting into recovery mode.

    I'm desperate. :eek: Please help!

    Ouch. Definitely not the safest way to unroot.
