I'll probably get flamed for this, but I guess I deserve it.

So, I rooted my Fascinate a while ago, and it was right after the last firmware update with the broken Emergency Call button on the lockscreen. I didn't think much of it because I never use the password screen.

So all was fine, but then there was a patch for the Emergency Button, and I absent mindedly updated my phone. Now I'm blocked out of Superuser functions, and my phone is running extremely slow.

Is there anything I can do to "unroot" my phone, or root it again?

I followed instructions for a manual root with Windows 7 command prompt, which I found somewhere on these forums. It had instructions to unroot, but I can't remember where it was.

you will have to re root. best bet is to flash one of the froyo roms, they rock.

thats part of the process of flashing a rom. atleast it should be. select wipe data and then select wipe cache.


wow. it worked. thank you sososososo much. your title really fits you!

So what can i do with this Froyo(2.2? right?) now?

Should I root it again? I loved that extra battery life from JuiceDefender, and ScreenCaps. should I take any precautions this time?
