Great job teddy...

Can anyone confirm that unroot works as well?
Without a working odin image or nandroid I think its important in the event of a hardware issue.

Same question: Can anyone confirm unroot? I'd love to root, but I want a way back out just in case.

i just re-rooted my phone from stock, testing the Unroot now


Edit: it seems unroot didnt work, though like mentioned above you would only want to unroot incase of hardware issue or you want t replace the phone wit T-Mo, but thats all good now cause i posted a working Odin image earlier.
