    I was wondering how can I unroot my phone?
    I rooted it but it was about 6 months ago or so but I have this rom on http://forums.androidcentral.com/opt...l-cm7-1-a.html
    and I just want to know how I can undo it to go back to the stock rom.
    Is it possible?

    If it's not possible then what would be the best way to switch over to this rom

    And I'm just asking because it's been such a long time since I've messed with this stuff and I know things change.

    When I had this phone, I did what you wanted to do a couple times. I used this website How to: Return your Optimus V to Stock(Tested working) - SDX-Developers Forum and followed the instructions.

    Now, if you want to put the stock recovery that is provided in that download, you'll have to do this (I had to do this). Once the stock ROM is on the phone, use SuperOneClick and do a shell root so you can gain temporary root access. Once that is done, use adb and the commands provided on the website.

    The first link that takes you to a Mediafire website is a little broken. The way to fix it is go up to where you put the link in, and delete the " at the end. Then try again.

    There are one click Root and Unroot applications for windows computers, like "Super one click Root", "Unlock Root". They can do that process just one click. However your devices should support, if not you can't. This is the easy way to root and unroot android phone.

    Super one click root:- SuperOneClick | shortfuse.org
    Unlock Root:- Devices List -- Unlock Root of Android

    Root and Unroot android with super one click.

    Easily root and unroot android phone, tablets with Unlock root.

    Thanks!

    I believe gingerbreak.apk has an unroot option. You should try it.

    Why not just re-flash the stock ROM and keep it rooted?

    It is possible I do it all the time, when I wanna safely factory reset my phone. 1st u need the stock recovery, 2nd the gingerbreak app. 1st thing is flash the recovery and double check to make sure it flashed properly then 2nd click the gingerbreak app, click unroot. Phone will unroot and reboot automatically when finished. After that u can safely factory reset ur phone and its back to original

    But before u do any of that make sure u have ur original back up of the 2.2.2 rom saved in ur SD card. If not then u find a original rom and flash it. Then continue with the steps I provided above

    As promised here is the apk Flash Image GUI, updated one that works great. Easy to use to flash kernals and recoverys. When flashing the above recovery select the flash recovery option only then go through ur folder and select the newest recovery img and then select flash and congratulations back to stock

    Plus either works if your keeping it or selling it or even giving it away. But... if ur gonna send it back to use ur warranty u need the proper O.S. when they run a system check on ur phone and it don't match their database that's gonna kill ur warranty.

    Read this thread. It has everything you need and the proper stock and recovery for 2.2.2 and 2.2.1 phones. I used the 2.2.2 and my phone is all stock ready to sell.

    I agree that's a great thread. I'd post more but the moderator here is out to get me cause I called him out the other day. Its a forum guess they love abusing their power. Oh well

    He's not our to get you... you got banned for distributing copyrighted material for free. If they let stuff like them they'll get shut down by the govt. I'm sure they are already frowned on by many because this is a whole forum devoted to hacking phones (something that the phone companies wish was illegal) without having people post actually illegal things. Sorry man.

    Ahhh I see. I was confused because he sent me a pm and then I looked and it said he was banned. Very unfortunate that some people don't understand. Thanks.
