Is it possible to unroot after using the 1 Click Root? I'm coming from a rooted Droid Eris and I remember the first few people who rooted their Erises had lots of problems and I just wanna make sure we can go back and re-root if a better root process comes along later on...

Yes, but you'd have to do it manually at this point.

You'd delete busybox and su, uninstall superuser.apk, and there may be a symlink you need to undo, but I think the latest one-click cleans that up. I'd have to go back and check.

And any bloat you froze needs to be unfrozen, or bloat removed needs to be restored.

Okay, first version of this tool, be kind and let me know if there are any problems with it.

Also: NO GUARANTEES. If it does something that breaks your phone, I am not liable. Use at your own risk. Etc., etc.

I'm trying the one touch unroot and keep getting an error about the /sdcard/d3unroot folder missing files.

I extracted all of the APKs from your link to my /sdcard/d3unroot directory, but for some reason one touch unroot will not work.

The root worked great

Same here.
Why does it even need that to un-root @ that point?

Is it really a one-click method?

I'm a dummy so I think I'm gonna wait for some clarity.

Thanks for doing this, man!

Fully re-written and should un-root and restore /system/app for both v5.5.959 and v5.6.890. Enjoy!

http://www.psouza4.com/Droid3/PetesM...ools_v1.03.zip

This program is for Windows only and can:
  • root your device (most Motorola Gingerbread devices)
  • unroot your device
  • restore your /system/app, even if you deleted files

And a bit more, such as un-freezing apps if you un-root just like Titanium Backup can.
