How to tell if you phone is unrooted?
Is there any way at all (from the device) to tell if your phone is NOT ROOTED?
I have to send my Captivate back to ATT (GPS issues) and want to make 100% sure my phone is NOT ROOTED.
I unrooted my Captivate following these steps
Here's how you UNROOT your Captivate - Android Forums
I've found tons of info on this forum and other forums but nothing mentions checking anything on the device itself.
I can still run adb shell commands from my PC but I'm not sure if you can do that with an unrooted phone.
So does anyone know of a sure-fire way to:
A. Set my phone back to factory defaults before I send it back and
B. A way from the device to check the "root" status.

And I tried the Galaxy S One-Click Root app and that doesn't seem to work.
When I click the "One-Click UnRoot" button the blue cmd windows pops up and with instructions to select the "reinstall package" menu item. What I found from the .bat file is it copys unroot.zp to \sdcard\update.zip to the device then reboots it in recovery mode.
From there I select "reinstall package" but the next screen is more menu options "ClockworkMod Recovery v126.96.36.199".
I select "-apply sdcard:update.zip" then "- Yes - Install /sdcard/update.zip"
A second later I'm at another menu asking me to reboot the device.
This ends up not un-rooting the phone.
