If you do a sbf flash (Moto phone, not sure about others.) You go back to stock like you just pulled it out of the box. Leave no evidence that it was rooted.

I'm pretty sure if you flash it back to the stock ROM, THEN unroot, then it applies the same and it's not detectable.

Well if you flash a stock ROM it should remove root.

You need to reflash to stock rom and please "LOCK THE BOOTLOADER". No one can tell the phone has been rooted except you.

I have returned several rooted phones to verizon with no problems. I first unroot, then in system do a system reset. if you do install a rom be sure to flash back to the stock android that came with it.

My droid x for instance, I run roms etc, I flash back stock, then reset system, ok no problems with verizon

On the dx2 I have returned my gf's phone that I rooted for her. I just unrooted and reset system and ok

It depends on how you Root it and the android device you have.

With HTC, certain phones can only be unlocked using the HTC unlock method provided by them. My EVO 3D for example, I had to do this and the HTC method leaves a watermark that indicates a root. Even if I unroot it, the watermark is still there.

Most other methods will allow you to flash the OEM ROM and unroot the phone without a problem.
