Unrooting is easy. Reverting s-off back to s-on Not been done or tested on this phone. And No offence I'm not going to either. U have already got unlocked bootloader anyway. So u shouldn't have s-off..... Or have u bought the clip and done it lol, but seriously if u want to Unroot follow any guide to re installing stock Ruu on HTC.
To lock your bootloader, redo the steps to unlock it. But this time the last cmd is changed and voila, locked. U will have to lock it before you do stock Ruu as you will also wipe out the cwm recovery off your phone, but as I said before, becareful, and follow instructions carefully.
If you wish to do this then Good luck ;)

Wasn't me............ ;)

Follow which ever post u want then my friend. Over here, u can update the hboot and it wont invalidate the warrenty, but the minute u unlock it, its gone. Hence why u can lock it again.

Default Need help unrooting my rooted salsa

Hi, I recently brought a used HTC Salsa which I beleive is rooted. It seems to be using a Wildfire S ROM and I wanted to unroot to a stock ROM.

So far I'v tried to use the RUU provided for the Salsa on HTCDEV.com but i get this message "ERROR [191] ROM IS NOT SUPPORTED" I also tried the solution provided on this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1437545 but those two files don't seem to exist with the RUU provided for the Salsa.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

ok...where did you get it from? phone wise
try this and see what happens, remove battery, reinsert battery, hold the volume key down and press power on.
Hboot will come up...scan and stop...copy off all the details you see.
now using volume key scroll down and select recovery second option underneath first highlighted.
if you go into a custom recovery then chances are you have root and some random rom installed.
with the phone on, go to settings, about phone, software, it will show you there what the name of the rom is, normally the owners name or design is there.

with this info we maybe able to sort something out for you....

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I got it from an e-bay style website in New Zealand, it's probably imported as this model is not available in NZ.

From Hboot I can see:

*** UNLOCKED ***
I CON_G PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.08.0000
MICROP-0558
RADIO-7.51.35.19
Dec 16 2011,16:12:07

After going into recovery, I would say it is rooted. I don't know what an original recovery page looks like but this one says:

CWM-based Recovery v5.0.2.6

Now going into settings and software information, i see:

Android Version
2.3.5

HTC Sense version
2.1

Software number
m1ndh4x8r2180


Theres another menu that says baseband, kernal, etc. if you need any information from there.

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks again for your help.
your running a rom from m1ndh8x4r on sense 2.1, ripped from the wildfire s and ported to ours.
it is based on stock with a lot of extras pumped into it.
this rom is discontinued but i still have all the files for it.
good thing about this is u can have upto 1gb internal memory this way, reverting to stock you go back to 150mb ish.

we do have many different roms inc my own i have made if you want to stay this way, but if you want stock again, its gonna be tricky but can be done, you loose everything on the phone inc the recovery system and it goes back to stock. but....i only have EU/UK stock only the one you will require is not listed online....do u have ebay link to the listing?

its up to you from here....if your running the Aussie variant you won't get stock back from that region, and installing a stock from EU/UK you won't get full compatibility in the phone im afraid....
did u get an sd card with it?
