Default Unroot (get brand firmware back)

Hi.

I bought my X10 for about 2 weeks ago.

I needed rooting to get ridd off some links and apps installed by Telenor(my subscriber in Norway)

My question is, do i need to unroot it if i want to send it to service?

I used a guide on this forum to root it. with id : 717949

Maybe that rooting process dosen't take backup of my old ROM?


And when 2.1 or 2.2 come from Sony Ericsson is there any problems with my rooted phone, or can i just use Sony's updater to get my phone unrooted at that point?

Thanks for all reply's

Unbelieveably easy.

But first update your phone to 026 with SEUS, Sony Ericsson Update Service.

Ha dé.

Forgot this, rooting does not make backups of your ROM.
But the "One click root" just requires one more click to be unrooted.

Dead easy. (but the first time I ran it, I had to run it twice... )

It seemed that it rooted and unrooted the first time I tried it.
So I just ran it again.
All is fine now.

thanks

I know about this one click rooting program.

but when i have used the method on this forum called (Newbies guide to rooting) i don't have a backup of my Branded ROM?

Can i use a Generic-Nordic ROM to make my X10i unrooted again? for service purposes?

I don't need my phone subscriber's ROM, I just wan't a way to get my phone ready for service if i need it

Dont worry , be happy.

Why do you worry about servicing, have you EVER serviced an SE phone that often before?

BTW, by the way, the root method I referred to has a button called Unroot.

If your phone needs servicing, do you think you will be able to reflash it before sending it to to service ?
