Thanks DG. I knew if I waited it would pay off.

Any plans on making an "unroot" script?

I created this script to simply use what is there, only adding what is needed for a nice neat clean setup.

What this script does:
Roots
Installs Superuser.apk
Enables Non-market apps (sideloading)
Installs su and sqlite3 binaries to /system/bin
Removes onclickroot busybox install (if it exists)

Thanks for the departing gift DG. Can we install this without any issues if we have already used the superoneclick root method?

Okay currently rooted with Adeo already assuming unroot before applying this script, but as far as Adeo I understand it doesn't need to be rooted for the install but if its already there would i have any problems swapping the root method?

Edit: Oh hehe was beat to it XD

Thank you!!! sooooo much for all your work and your continuous support, looking forward to what you will tackle next.

Thanks for the reply. So no need to unroot, just apply your new script over the superoneclick?

Do you think you will go back to the atrix id it gets an unlocked bootloader?

This looks interesting: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=183

Maybe this is the key we need to unlock the bootloader!

I ran the script and it gave me an error about TIMEOUT not a known function, but it still got the job done. I used the one before the unroot was added (redownloading now).


Again, many thanks. Can't wait to see what the other "gifts" are.

very odd, I wonder if older versions of windows dont support the timeout function...

what are you running?
