    Posted this on xda but I think heres a better place.

    Hello everyone.

    Long story short I got a droid razr and my mom got my thunderbolt. For ease of use I want to unroot it for her.

    I looked at the stickies and saw there wasnt a method to unroot for my situation.

    My phone was rooted with the old auto root method from back in march of 2011. So how do I unroot now?

    Thanks.

    also that gingerroot is a ripoff all its doing is deleting superuser apk from system/app i wont unroot you it will just take away your root permissions.

    Thank you, and this works with all methods of rooting? Cause I didn't use ADB. Used autoroot method.

    yep.
    Hey yoda, on top of what I said above, below is a method which is in a sticky in this forum above. Does this work? I was going to do this because I found it too at xda but I noticed (bolded quoted text) required me to do something else, so could I use this method or stick with the one you gave me?

    Putting current stock firmware and s-on back onto the phone

    After getting the bootloader back to the original s-off, engineering 1.04.2000
    hboot download these 2 files:
    1)PG05IMG_1.70.605.0_nohboot.zip
    md5: c2c61df561e8a74cd103f0b9b89d81d6
    and
    2) PG05IMG_hboot_only_1.04.0000
    md5: 584a4cdc12658835cb2a7885e8e44fd2

    Rename PG05IMG_1.70.605.0_nohboot.zip to "PG05IMG"... move to your sd card and flash in hboot.

    This is important! you must flash the PG05IMG_1.70.605.0_nohboot.zip first!

    After successfully flashing that... you will be on unrooted mr2 with an eng s-off bootloader. Delete the PG05IMG file from your sd card. Now place the PG05IMG_hboot_only_1.04.0000 on your sd card. Check the md5. Once you've verified it matches... you can rename it "PG05IMG" and flash it.

    Again, ONLY flash the hboot file after you have successfully flashed the rom.

    Now you are 100% stock on latest firmware. Unrooted MR2 (1.70.605.0), with s-on 1.04.0000 bootloader.

    I would work it was Manley for the revolutionary root method that required a special way to unroot because of the way it protects the boot loader. I would stick to the other method as its easier and less likely for something to go wrong

    Hey Yoda one last thing before I unroot do I need to get a radio or it goes to stock radio?

    Well, I was attempting this today and it wouldn't even work. Cause like I said before I didn't root with adb or sdk stuff. Just auto root.

    Would you suggest flashing those two files from XDA?

    Here's the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1310014

    Okay not trying to be a PITA but I am not sure what was used when my phone was rooted but evidently it was "unrooted" when my phone received an OTA update and a friend tried to "re-root" it and ever since, the phone runs like #$%& and it randomly will automatically download pushed updates OTA and when I wake up its got a little blue Droid guy on the screen and I need to reformat the phone to get it to work again.

    I just want to unroot it and return it back to stock. If I don't know what has already been done to it, is there a way to find out or is there a simple universal way to unroot? Any help is so appreciated. I can give you any info that is needed just let me know what you need to know.

    Thanks!

    Not necessarily directed at OP, but how you need to UNroot your device can depend on what the current software version is, as well as what method was used to root in the first place, but I'd imagine that you would want to investigate first.

    FYI, the "auto root" method you speak from back in the day did in fact use ADB, the commands were just put into a script for more user-friendliness. Ah...memories....
