    I just purchased a used Samsung Transform and I don't think its been rooted before but there is an app on the phone called SuperUser that I can't delete off my phone for anything and when I connect my phone to my computer it isn't even recognized as being connected. Please help me remove this file...I need the FOR DUMMIES instructions!!!

    Im not sure what sbf is. Im a Rookie. I pretty much need the phone back to factory, because I need Sprint to replace it due to some issues. But with this program on it and it possibly having been rooted, I dont want the warranty to be voided.

    Alright, head to the market and download 'Androzip file manager' now in the SD card area make a folder called 'sdx' and then a folder named 'zip' inside that folder. Now In my guide I posted above, download the file I posted and put the file in the zip folder you made. Now go into my guide and follow the rest ofmy instructions. Any issues post in that thread.

    Thank you so much. Do I download this and install it from my phone? And will this bring the manufacter warranty back so that I can take it in to Sprint?

    Download and install the SW Updater Free File Hosting, Online Storage &amp File Upload with FileServe (86,252 KB). This will require you to reboot your computer after it is installed.
    2. Download the Kernel/Recovery file http://www.mediafire.com/?3y133jb0jhr0fmm
    3. Navigate to c:\Program Files\Samsung Electronic\SWUpgrade\Models\Binary and delete EVERYTHING inside of this folder.
    Note that in 64bit versions of Windows, you need to be in c:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung Electronic\SWUpgrade\Models\Binary
    4. Run SWUpdater and follow it's instructions
