Successfully unrooted devour
Now most of you will be saying stuff like: Why would you want to unroot your devour? or You are stupid for unrooting the devour?, but I saw people trying to unroot other devices and I really wasn't using root so I thought this would be helpful to others (mostly for warranty purposes). Mainly all it takes is changing a few commands.
Now you will go through the most of the rooting process again:
1.Download the attached archive and expand it to a folder you can find (eg. c:\devour_root)
2.Set up ADB (You'll need to google this part)
3.On the phone: Home, Menu Button, Settings, Applications, Development: Make sure the "USB debugging" option is enabled/checked.
4.Status bar, USB connection: Make sure "PC Mode" is selected.
5.Open a command prompt (Windows: Start, Run, "cmd", OK; Linux: Terminal)
6.Run "adb devices". If you don't see your device listed under "List of devices attached", return to step 2 and follow the link to setup ADB (use that topic for support) and return here when "adb devices" lists your X.
7.Run "CD c:\devour_root" (or where ever you expanded the archive)
8.Run "adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk"
9.Run "adb push su /sdcard/su"
10.Run "adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox"
11.Run "adb push exploid /sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid"
12.Run "adb shell"
13.Run "cd sqlite_stmt_journals"
14.Run "chmod 755 exploid"
15.On your phone, navigate to a screen where you can switch wifi/bluetooth on/off easily (settings, or a home screen with a widget)
16.IMMEDIATELY after executing the next step, toggle wifi or bluetooth off and back on
17.Run "./exploid" and follow directions on screen. Once this completes you'll be back at a shell prompt.
18.Run "rootshell". You'll be prompted for a password.
19.Type in password "secretlol" and press Enter then you are root! (You'll know because your prompt will now be a "#" instead of "$")
20.Run "mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system"
but once you get here, you will key in the following:
rm -r /system/app/Superuser.apk
rm -r /system/bin/su
then you will remove rootshell
rm -r /system/bin/rootshell
There, you are done and unrooted and no one will tell you ever were root!!
(Just remember if you mess something up with this I am not liable for a bricked phone, this is just meant to help if someone is having problems)
