Thanks to HTC not really. You can install a stock rom from the dev section and remove super user. And then install the modded hboot from dev section to hide the boot loader tags. But your never going to be truely stock again....

Thanks for the help, do people buy rooted HTC phones? How much do they go for generally?

I will be selling mine once I get back from HTC. Unrooted and in mint condition your looking at top price 200. But once your boot loader is unlocked i'd guess around 150 maybe a notch more, because whatever warranty you had is now void. And because your now unable to receive official updates. HTC here in the U.K are quite strict with their warranty from my experience. It's still worth trying for more money as you can always drop the price later if unsuccessful.

From this..installing a stock ROM would still be locked out of receiving the HTC updates? I have an O2 Mini.

I too would like to know how to get back to RUU in the UK.
I've an unbranded phone bought out right and getting fed up of not being able to use banking apps.
I've used RootCloak and it's working for Halifax (although at present Halifax is just mobile web rather than an app) but not for Barclay's and Lloyd's.

Anyway, Googling how to unroot phone I found a link to this:
http://mobilefileserver.com/download.aspx?get=244322
If anyone is willing to pay for it, looks like we might be able to get an RUU.

Then there's a couple of Persian sites when I Google'd the ROM:
Google Results
I've translated it and tried to join up but it couldn't get past the sign in screen, lord knows why.

So there we are, possible options to return to RUU. If anyone knows how to get around the banking problem i'll stick with root.
