Question Root, fix and unroot -- possible?

Dear developers,

thanks for the work on the "sdcard issue on kitkat". I really longing for the old behavior but have a bad feeling to let my phone rooted. I have read, that I can root and unroot my HTC one m8. My question: Is it possible to root my phone, use this app to fix the bug/feature/issue and unrrot the device at the end? Or will the unroot procedure restore all changes? Did anyone try?

Thanks and keep it up!

I'm glad I found this app. I was tired of the restrictions.

using Xolo Q3000 device with Stock Rooted Android v4.4.2. used this app. all seemed well. but.... (i just hope this is not deemed off-topic here....)

i'm trying to use onandroid v9.51 to create nandroid backups while the device is running. see pics of command output and also platform.xml.

i even tried making changes to /mnt/media_rw like in the pic below (right). still, no go!

any idea why the file system remains read-only? please suggest a workaround or alternate methods. i'm not knowledgeable enough. many thanks in advance.
