You will just need to unroot via ginger break and you will be ready for official update via official tools.

So far, KDZ has done nothing for me except for brick two phones. I've followed your instructions implicitly and they ultimately failed, resulting in a phone that would not turn on. About six months ago, when I first got an Optimus, I had attempted to install Clockwork Mod using Rom Manager, and the result was a phone that would only boot into recovery mode with the three button combo, else it would just end up in an eternal boot loop.
Someone on another forum recommended using KDZ to flash the official firmware (V10C I think at the time) and the result back then was the same. KDZ crashed halfway through the process and the phone would no longer turn on.
I've read conflicting information on this, stating that KDZ will only work on Windows XP 32 bit w/ service pack 3 (which I had at the time I attempted to flash six months ago) and that it should run on any version of Windows. I was running KDZ from Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit this last time.
All in all, I would not recommend KDZ to anyone except someone who has already bricked their phone and is just using it as a last ditch effort to regain functionality. Worst case scenario, it should **** the phone up enough that your cell phone provider won't be able to figure out what you did to the phone. That's what I'm hoping, otherwise T-mobile will be tacking an extra $300 onto my phone bill next month.

umm.. hello this tutorial is for p500 only. Not for p509
Me and many others have installed official firmware using kdz.
Kdz was the only way to install cfw on p500 with ofw 2.2.1 and above before the arrival of gingerbreak.

I have used KDZ updater on my old gt540 many many times and on my O1 now for several times.Only windows vista gave my problems. You can always test it by "read phone info" first. If it works fine, the update will go fine as well.
