I have my EVO rooted with the newest Freshhh but I am going to trade my girlfriend for her white one. But she wants me to unroot the phone. I've tried everything and no luck. What if I find a 2.1 Rom then update it to 2.2? I would try but....can't find a 2.1 Rom with an active download link.

Just run a stock RUU onto it. Check the android development forum for the rom Wiki which has a list of the stock RUU's.

I've done this twice on mine to unroot and return the phone to stock for an exchange and can confirm it works.

There are also several long threads in android development titled "How to UNROOT the evo in 2 easy steps" etc.... just do a search you'll find more information than you will asking here.

Flash the 3.70.651.1 RUU.
http://goo-inside.me/evo/stock/RUU/

Just rename it to PC36IMG.zip, put it on the root of your SD card, and boot into hboot. Follow the prompts, and that's it.

I didnt want to sound like an ass by saying I already said why in my first post when I was asking. And she doesnt want root because she's not into the whole root thing. And so to be nice since she is trading me her 2 day old white EVO for my few month old black one ill do what she asked
