Best way to get back to stock is to SBF. Follow the link below for a super easy SBF method.

I just committed the sin of helping a friend root his DX and we froze some bloat with Rom Toolbox. Naturally, the phone instantly runs better.
Problem is, he's using an app called "Good" to access his corporate mail/calendar.. However when he went into Good, it instantly detected his phone was rooted and stated his IT guys wouldn't allow access on a rooted device (how nice).
Worst case scenario I can easily SBF the phone back to stock which is no biggie other than big inconvenience for him and egg on my face, and the bloat's back of course.

So now I'm looking for a solution that will allow him to remain rooted, and possibly hide root from the app somehow? Any suggestions welcome.

I'm sorry I can put this in a new thread if needed, and searching now. Certainly the issue has come up.

There is an app from xeudoxus called Privacy Blocker. It supposedly replaces personal info needed for app permissions with generic info. I haven't used it in awhile. Maybe it would work to fool the IT? They obviously request superuser rights. ... hmmm... maybe you could get superuser to deny root privileges. Knowing exactly how they detect root would make avoidance easier.

Yeah I'll research that one. I wondered how you could deny an app root access by default or hide root rights from it.

Saw an app or two on market that temporarily disabled root but don't know if they work on the DX. I try to post them.

I think one was called OTA Rootkeeper.

So I SBF'd my friend's DX yesterday .. Won't know until tomorrow if his GFE (Good for Enterprise) will work until Monday when he tries the new PIN. Never again.. rooting is for the individual and Im only messing with my phone.

Though I think it was good for his phone. There was something definitely killing performance causing lag, plus his stock launcher screen preview wouldn't work. I think something was corrupted.

Just a note.. neither the above app hitting temporary unroot, or deleting su, superuser and busybox would fool GFE. It still thought the phone was rooted.
