    No need to un install the customtrom. The ruu will take care of that.

    I want to unroot just because I want my original rom back on my evo. I installed a custom one and cant seem to get my original back.

    There are stock ROMs out there you know. IOW, you can be totally stock and still be rooted.

    Did you not make a nandroid of your stock rom after rooting? If you did, just restore that. Should be totally stock but rooted. If you didn't there is a handfull of stock roms out there.

    Hi i am new here.
    I have the mindcr ics Rom and i wish to unroot.
    Is it possible to unroot and keep that Rom?
    When i installed it, it deleted everything including my contacts,
    will it do that if i unroot?

    I wish to unroot ONLY so some apps work, which stream stuff.

    If there is a way for those apps to work, them great!

    Cheers,

    the Cobbster.

    Ps can you PM me answer as well as post here?
    I don't know if i get notifications for new reply!

    cheers!

    Hello there Cobbster and welcome!
    If you have some issues with apps not working, there is not really a need to unroot.
    What are you having issues with?
    It is alot easier to "fix" stuff when you are rooted:)

    That's odd. I'll have to check that out when I'm on the computer. Do you have a link for that app?

    I haven't had very few apps that couldn't run on rooted devices and "hide my root" was my work around.

    They are mixed reviews in the market for it, but it worked for me on hiding/restoring su and su binary

    Edit:

    GS2 rooted here, confirmed flixster definitely works while rooted without hiding binaries
