    im having quite a time unrooting.

    is there an easy way to unroot?

    -im running stock 2.1 rooted
    -hboot shows 0.93
    -showing s-on

    ive tried many methods with no success.

    i either get 140 bootloader version error when running an RUU

    or

    main version is older when trying to update the image file.

    anybody have any ideas?

    just want to get back to stock and unrooted.

    Thanks! :)

    Try the install first. It should work, and if so will save you the time of having to deal with another RUU.

    If it doesn't then go to different RUU.

    That's strange. It prompted the update but wouldn't execute it?

    Did it give an error of any kind? Either way, I guess you're going to be downloading the correct RUU now ey?

    By the way, why are you removing root?

    Download something that requires root and try using it.
