    So R/O for normal operation?

    By the way if anyone is wondering the one click root/unroot doesn't remove the Superuser.apk or ninja icon.

    Ok finally got it.

    If anyone is using the one click unroot. You'll have to remove these files manually or you'll still have the Superuser icon in the app drawer.

    /system/app/Superuser.apk
    /system/bin/su
    /system/bin/busybox

    finally remove the rootshell

    /system/bin/rootshell

    And then su superuser.apk and busybox from the root of you sd card (You may not have to do this but when I didn't remove them they seemed to get reinstalled in the system folders. )

    reboot
