Giving (and revoking) root access to apps
After following the steps to root your device, it looks fairly trivial to unroot it (just remove su and busybox, and you're done). However, One thing that does concern me, what should I do when I start giving root access to apps? I doubt uninstalling su will do it (correct me if I'm wrong), so what do I need to do if I, for example, need to take it to vzw.
Also, when an app is asking for root access, I get a cancel/allow screen, with an allow always box checked. (To be honest, I think it should be the other way, but whatever, life goes on), so if I hit allow with the allow always checked, what do I need to do to revoke root access to the individual app? (I'm okay with using the console if needed. ).

Open the Superuser Permissions application. It has a ninja icon. From there you can "forget" or deny access for any applications that have been granted SU.
Ah, very good to know...thanks.
However...what happens if I delete su without removing all of the
appearance? Also, what about qpplications like boat? Will I need to do anything special to make th phone look like I never used it? Again, thanks.
