    If I rooted my phone using another method, and for some reason, let's say for warranty reasons, I needed to unroot my phone, could I unroot my phone through this? That is, when you post the guide for unrooting...

    Windows OS only for the moment. This is the only way to root GB as of now. You can always put Bootcamp onto your Mac if you're up for partitioning the hard drive.

    This guide is long over due, but very nicely done!

    Revolutionary gets +1 from me.

    I agree! I haven't done it myself, but I might give it a shot just for the hell of it sometime.

    Great work CW!

    So I unrooted my phone with the tutorial and everything went great! The only problem I might have is towards the very end. At the end of the unroot video that it is with associated on youtube (just like the how to root one), it shows the S-ON and everything, and that is fine. The only thing that is different is the end numbers of the radios.

    In the video, the radio is: 1.16.00.040w_1

    On my phone, the radio is: 1.39.00.0627r

    Does this matter at all or am I just paranoid?


    Also, when the OTA GB does come available again (whenever that may be haha), I will be able to update right? I know that Verizon pulled GB because of the voicemail bug, so I am running Froyo 2.2.1 currently.

    No... you're fine. The video is showing the MR1 Radio. You're on MR2... exactly where you should be until you get the GB update... and yes, you will receive OTA's.

    Thanks Cyber! Revolutionary was so easy I couldn't flash a ROM for a full day after rooting. I was too busy kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

    I know... thanks. I haven't tried Revolutionary yet but when I was writing up the guide it felt a little overwhelming.. After reading everything for the 3rd time it all sounds second nature now including the unroot process. You're right though... it is very simple. Like you said, when everything is written down it looks like a lot of work.

    Everything worked for me through getting s-off, but when I go into bootloader and I am supposed to press volume down to select the recovery option, nothing happens - does anyone have any suggestions?

    Geez, a root method that doesn't make my brain hurt.

    I noticed in step 10, that it does not mention going into the bootloader to get to recovery.

    Other then that, all went smoothly.

    I get it now thanks, I was WTF where is recovery, then I realized that I needed to select bootloader, thanks for the guide, I was looking into rooting, but once the HTC Security thing that came out I figured now was a good time to get it done, and look into flashing a cm7 rom...thanks again..
