Default [Q] Undo alpharevx root

A month or so ago I used the alpharevx method to root. Today the 2.3.4 update was released. Since the alpharevx method changes the bootloader, my phone won't accept the verizon update.

How do i get back to completely stock to allow this update to push through? I saw JCase's method but it seems risky and complicated. Is there an easier way?

Since you are rooted, why would you want to take the OTA and lose root?

What exactly is wrong with JCase's method? Seems like your only option to me. Here's a video walkthrough, it really doesn't seem too scary.

It really is a breeze to unroot as long as you follow the instructions. I just got through doing it just to do it in case I ever need to and it went off without a hitch.
