    I will most likely have to send my phone in for a refurb, but I have a few questions. Right now I am rooted, and I know I need to unroot. I have purchased several root-only apps from the market and I would like to know if what will happen to them during the process. Of course I know that when I unroot I will lose everything and then not be able to use them. But once I root my new phone will I be able to reinstall them? And will the people be able to view them in my downloads?

    it *should* be synced with your google account.....and if you unroot using the 2.2 RUU (or the 2.1 ruu, but why use that when we are officially 2.2) will wipe your data anyway

    Is the 2.2 RUU just removing the Rom.zip from the executable file? Will that automatically remove all signs of root also or are any other steps required? Is there a trustable PB31IMG.zip out there for return to 2.2 "stock" (meaning the new standard in stock).
