    yes you are able to unroot your phone :) (I'll make a video on that when I get the chance)
    or what you can do is fastboot your phone back to Android 2.3.5 and its as if you just took the phone out of the box

    After root, do I need to reinstall google play and get my apps or us that only if I flash a ROM?

    I am running 2.3.6, will this work?

    I just want to root, run stock and freeze bloat with tibu.

    Also, when ics is released will I need to unroot to get the ota??

    Thanks

    HTTR: rooting only gives you special permissions you dont usually have. you wont have to reinstall anything. Some ROMs dont have google apps like play store so if you flashed that then you'd need to download play store. Just root and install TiB. im pretty sure you have to unroot to install OTA's... but unrooting is extremely easy with fastboot, ive had to do it twice and it hasnt been a problem

    kazca: that video is very easy to follow. and the Razr will recieve ics, im not sure when but someone probably knows the release date so google it up.

    sorry, TiB is an abbreviation for Titanium Backup. its an app that backs up apps and their data to your external storage so they arent lost when flashing new roms. look for it in the market, er play store...
