Thank you for the easy one-click-root. My 2.3.4 is now rooted! (R800i_4.0.1.A.0.283)

None at this time. The zergRush devs would have to release another app to undo what is done with zergRush. I highly doubt that will happen unless someone else figures out how to.

it should be actually pretty simple (since zergRush is local/tmp root)

but i am busy with kernel work right now... will post a unroot script when i get time...

When you do release it, I'll say that you came to the rescue for such requests again.

DooMLoRD -- Do you just want me to modify your script to remove all the root files and reboot?
Tips:
*Logcat or it never happened. *Search before posting *Go to User CP -> Edit Options -> switch "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" to 50. *Reporting Posts

Looks like I won't be doing anything android for a long time

Thanks for the lul'z

ok, i'm stuck... my device locks up after running zergRush (to regain root)
Here's what I have so far, anybody have any ideas?
Code:
@echo ---------------------------------------------------------------
@echo	              Easy UNrooting toolkit (v1.0)
@echo                    created by DooMLoRD
@echo		   Slightly Changed by Paxchristos
@echo         using exploit zergRush (Revolutionary Team)
@echo    Credits go to all those involved in making this possible!
@echo ---------------------------------------------------------------
@echo[*] This script will:
@echo      (1) root ur device using zergRush exploit
@echo      (2) install Busybox (1.18.4)
@echo      (3) install SU files (3.0.5)
@echo[*] Before u begin:   
@echo      (1) make sure u have installed adb drivers for ur device
@echo      (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING" 
@echo            from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
@echo      (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
@echo            from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
@echo      (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
@echo      (5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
@echo      (6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device
@echo ---------------------------------------------------------------
@echo  CONFIRM ALL THE ABOVE THEN 
@pause
@echo --- STARTING ----
@files\adb kill-server
@echo --- WAITING FOR DEVICE
@files\adb wait-for-device
@echo --- cleaning
@files\adb shell "rm -r /data/local/tmp"
@echo --- Added to DooMLoRDs script---
@files\adb shell "mkdir /data/local/tmp" 
@echo --- pushing zergRush"
@files\adb push files\zergRush /data/local/tmp/.
@echo --- correcting permissions
@files\adb shell "chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush"
@echo --- executing zergRush
@files\adb shell "./data/local/tmp/zergRush"
@echo --- WAITING FOR DEVICE TO RECONNECT
@echo if it gets stuck over here for a long time then try:
@echo    disconnect usb cable and reconnect it
@echo    toggle "USB DEBUGGING" (first disable it then enable it)
@echo --- DEVICE FOUND
@files\adb wait-for-device
@echo --- here comes the major changes to DooMLoRD's script
@files\adb shell "/system/xbin/busybox mount -o remount,rw /system"
@files\adb wait-for-device
@ehco --- deleting Superuser.apk
@files\adb shell "rm /system/app/Superuser.apk"
@echo --- deleting busybox
@files\adb shell "rm /system/xbin/busybox"
@echo --- deleting su
@files\adb shell "rm /system/bin/su"
@echo --- rebooting and hopefully root free!
@files\adb reboot
@echo ALL DONE!!!
@pause
