Well I rooted using the one step xyz program and it worked great. I followed up with installing Superuser Elite, Root Explorer, and a couple other root apps. Before I made any changes I wanted to try out the two step uninstall mentioned above. Anyway I couldn't delete the superuser.apk. I'm no longer rooted but the program is still there. All seems to work fine but I can't reinstall root as my laptop stops installing after it starts daemon. Daemon starts successfully but never does any more. Any thoughts how to make it reinstall?

You root explorer did you mount read/write permission to delete superuser.apk?
How do I verify that it's unrooted ? su #getting superuser fail ? Thanks.
Easiest is probally downloading a root app and seeing if it works or open a terminal and do #su

Even though I rooted less than a week ago, I unrooted yesterday as I realised that with ICS (hopefully) imminent, I'd need to be unrooted to accept it. (Plus, I was personally finding that there wasn't much need to be rooted anyway)
I used 'Voodoo OTA RootKeeper 2.0.3', which claims to unroot, whilst simultaneously making a backup of the rooted state should you wish to restore it after the OTA. Whether or not it works, I don't know - but it does claim (via unticked display boxes) that I'm neither rooted nor hold root permission. I guess we'll see when I finally get the prompt to update (...after changing my underwear, of course) and I try to do it.
EDIT: Just tried to open Titanium Backup, and it failed as it couldn't acquire root privileges - so I assume that it's worked.

I'm trying this unroot method and I am not having much luck. I rooted my device using the xyz method. I would like to unroot it and I was wondering if someone could post some in depth instructions. I tried deleting those files and it is telling me that I do not have the permissions to do so.
if i were on ics prior to its release date which i was ans ics was released via ota, why whould i ever want to un root to accept ota ics not knowing whats inside? to all you that did? was/ is it worth it? is there a re root? sorry i dont follow my tab forums too much
