    Ok, this is an unfortunate predicament im in. Ive had my phone rooted for about 6 months now (liquid froyo 1.4 and slayer 1.1ghz kernal) i originally rooted using easy root. heres the problem, my power button recently broke and i still have the warranty is there any way to get this phone to stock without using the power button at all?

    Purchase ROM manager and flash one of the Stock Images. They give you a choice of rooted or unrooted. This way you don't have to hold Power+X to get into recovery.

    Hope this helps.

    In ROM Manager, click "Download ROM", then scroll down to "Stock Images", download "Verizon Droid 2.2 FRG01B".

    When it is finished downloading, install that ROM choosing the unrooted option and wiping data/cache.

    EDIT: if you haven't flashed ClockworkMod Recovery, you will probably need to do that first.

    You could re-root to remove that, but I wouldn't worry about it. If you are exchanging your phone they won't even care about that app being on your phone. The important part is that it's unrooted.

    You shouldn't still be rooted, try installing the OTA update... it can't hurt and it might unroot your phone.

    Use a terminal emulator and type su.

    Otherwise, I don't know how else to help you.

    Hopefully the Superuser app is now gone from your app drawer. That is the porblem with the 'stock' unrooted rom in rom manager, it doesn't remove it. Last I heard they may or may not look for it.
