    I downloaded universal androot and rooted my phone. I then immediately un-rooted my phone and rebooted.

    Now I can't delete the superuser permissions app from my app drawer?? Plus I cant delete universal androot?? Please help.

    Plus since I un-rooted will I receive the OTA update to 2.2??

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Why unroot? If you rooted with universalandroot, you should be ready for 2.2.

    There's no downside to being rooted, unless you need to return the phone.

    To uninstall an app, go to settings... applications... manage applications and find it there. Uninstall will be an option after you open it there.

    There are several programs that require root, like some backup programs, screen shot pgms and one I like, quick boot.

    2.2 should be here in a couple weeks. Why install a buggy, preliminary version when the official one will be here soon? It's a LOT harder to uninstall the leaked 2.2 version than it is to install it.

    Did you try restarting the phone? It might be gone, but the app drawer hasn't been refreshed.

    If you can't get rid of superuser, it's no big deal, won't hurt anything.

    ALright cool.

    Well thanks for the advice.

    Since I clicked un-root and deleted universal androot, I will then expect the official 2.2 update.

    I will just forget that superuser permissions is in the drawer.

    droid x bootstrap can be grabbed here

    install it, open it up and press bootstrap recovery
    then in rom manager you can download 2.2 which is rooted and deodexed

    I'm also waiting for the OTA.

    I see no reason to install an buggy, interim build of Froyo. I can't image it like a computer hard drive and am busy enough where I don't need to install it for something to do. I've installed enough beta Windows installs (several hundred) so it's no big thrill. I've got other toys I can play with if I'm that bored. :D

    Also can you download all roms in rom manager or are most just for the original droid?
