I used the quick method... Worked great thanks! I wanted to root so I could turn auto brightness off on my Xperia Play but I updated to a newer ROM and I could do this without rooting, however I still rooted.

Is there any benifits I get from rooting?

Cheers

You rooted and you dont even know why you did it? haha.

Theres not too many major benefits tbh, it lets you remove bloatware and use root apps, not much more than that.

Yeah, rooting is way better than being locked into stock forever. He makes it seem like it's not very interesting at all.

Angry DooMLoRD UNROOTING Script v1.0

UNROOTING SCRIPT v1.0

so here is the unrooting script to be USED ONLY AND ONLY IF U HAVE USED MY FILES (Easy Rooting Toolkit) FOR ROOTING


[ WARNING ]

if u have used any other way/solution for rooting then PLEASE DO NOT RUN THIS... you MIGHT END UP with damaged system...


(thats cause some ppl create symlinks for busybox in /system/bin/ which wipes out stock symlinks to /system/bin/toolbox and breaks/damages system)


[ DISCLAIMER ]

I AM NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF U DAMAGE UR PHONE / SPILL UR COFFEE / MISS UR ALARMS / ANY OTHER CALAMITY/MISHAP

REMEMBER YOU ARE DOING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK


now that the warning is clear (hopefully) lets get to unrooting


Tested on:

Sony Xperia ARC


so here is the file.. (WINDOWS ONLY)

just download the attached file, extract it using winzip/winrar

go to the folder where its extracted and execute "RUNME-UNROOT.bat"

read and follow the instructions on the screen!

Code:
---------------------------------------------------------------
                   Easy rooting toolkit (v1.0)
                       UNROOTING SCRIPT
                      created by DooMLoRD
   based heavily on FlashTool scripts (by Bin4ry and Androxyde)
    Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
---------------------------------------------------------------
 [*] This script will:
      (1) unroot ur device using special script
      (2) remove Busybox and assocaited symlinks
      (3) remove SU files and assocaiated data
 [*] Before u begin:   
      (1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
      (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING" 
            from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
      (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
            from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
      (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
      (5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
      (6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device
 ---------------------------------------------------------------

if all goes well u will get output LIKE THIS


regards,

DooMLoRD

best/safest solution to unroot is to flash stock firmware using flashtool
