    So I noticed this morning that when my phone is turned off of brightness that it flickers in the background.

    How do I go about unrooting so that I can exchange my phone due to this problem?

    Sure it's not the auto-brightness in action? You can try disabling this feature, and see if that makes a difference:

    [Menu] > System settings > Display > Brightness > Uncheck [Automatic brightness] > OK

    Returning Phone to Stock (Unrooting)

    Download, read and follow the Instructions (PDF file) from:


    Basically, download the 'update.zip' onto the SDcard

    run 'wipe date/factory reset' from the recovery

    then 'apply update from external storage'

    and 'reboot system now'

    Thank you tli. After I posted I sat a thought that maybe it had something to do with the brightness being automatic. So I will definitely try disabling the feature and see what happens from that point.

    I went and turned off the Auto Brightness feature and as I was surfing the web on the phone last night, it started to do its flickering again.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    By all means I could use them, because I have rooted the phone and flashed it to work with PP.
