    No need to unroot. You can receive any updates.

    thanks for the update! if for some reason i would want to unroot though, would a security wipe do the trick?

    No. I've wiped mine, and the root stayed with it. Or maybe i am delusional...

    You are unrooted on each successful reboot. It is only through modification of a user file that the root is recovered after a reboot (by connecting USB to computer with Developer Mode on). This method no longer works in 7111 hence making you unrooted in 7111.
    There's no need to wipe.
    If you want to remove the file, it's easier removing it manually -- although it causes no issues. Wipes are a PITA.

    I have a playbook that was rooted with Dingleberry but before the next software release I am looking to unroot. I am using the 2.0.0.4869 OS version and am aware that a restore will not unroot. Any suggestions on how to unroot before the next software release from BB?

    If you want to permanently remove root, then you should just be able to install the official software.

    ? Typo?

    Shouldn't it say?

    If you want to permanently remove the root, just update via the official update process.
    (As of 2012-11 official update process will flash v 2.1.0.1088 to the device)

    OR is there something that needs to be restored -prior to such?
    (Please state what needs to be restored - I'm assuming you need to restore "A User file" mentioned below?)

    You are unrooted on each successful reboot. It is only through modification of a user file that the root is recovered after a reboot (by connecting USB to computer with Developer Mode on). This method no longer works in 7111 hence making you unrooted in 7111.
