    Question possible to unroot the "pre-rooted" version of gingerbread official release?

    So I had rooted stock fro yo....wanted gingerbread. Followed the steps to get the pre-rooted gingerbead. Worked fine. Now i have rooted gingerbread and my phone is having issues which I need to go into verizon to get a warranty replacement...which means I can't have a rooted phone! I need to somehow unroot it/ factory reset it or something. What's the easiest way to do this?

    Does going into Z4root and pressing unroot do it or is there more to it? Or starting the phone in that mode and factory resetting it? Let me know!

    thanks

    I'm no guru here but even if you unrooted, didn't you start with Froyo? I was under the impression that sbf'ing was the only way to get something back the the original state after rooting, freezing, and modding the smartphones.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the link, I've been out of the loop for a bit, is there a way to get root once I use that sbf?
