Is there an application in the play store that will allow a user to unroot their gnex(vzw) device? I currently don't have access to a computer..

Why would you want to unroot? How did you root in the first place?

There are plenty of legitimate reasons to unroot. My company is forced to used the "Good for Enterprise" email application which checks for root, busybox, and test keys inside the build.prop everytime you access the application.

It's the only email application for Android that allows remote device wipes, locks email, and encrypts/decrypts data. I would wager that most companies now support either a BB BES server or a GOOD server for their iOS/Android counterparts.

That sounds like a terrible decision on the app maker's part. Imagine if Outlook checked that you had Administrator rights on Windows and then refused to run. I wonder if you temp unroot with voodoo root keeper, etc, would that work?

That app checks for busybox, would have to uninstall it too, and most likely many apps will break.

Will the next nexus have a longer screen?

I have been using good on my rooted devices for about an yr (galaxy s and gnex) without any issue. Probably its not enforced by my sys administrator.

No need to unroot to install OTAs.
