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?

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
