    Hi! I have been having certain issues with my rooted phone. Not getting voicemails, youtube gone and can't find to return. Blah blah blah. Well, with the risks involved and my phone forever acting up, I would like to just go back to it's regular "fresh out of box" format. Could someone plz help me to do so. I've created and changed my layout so many times, I don't know what to do without killing my phone completely. Looking for help, quick! Thank you all!!!

    using the sprint updater tool you used to root, simply take out the file in the binary that you put in and put back the one that was there. re-flash and boom. stock.

    If you want to simply return to stock, download and install the official Moment updater. Run it and follow directions. I don't think rooting is your problem, though from your description it's hard to diagnose. It's possible that all you need to do is a hard reset. Good luck!

    If you misplaced your original DE03 .tar.md5 file (shame on you :p) you can simply uninstall and then reinstall the updater tool and voila. Keep in mind you will have to patch the updater if you plan to root again, and consequently if you need to flash the stock DE03 back after the updater is patched you have to remove the .md5 extension before it will flash.
