    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
    reboot

    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)
