First of all thanks to everyone who's been trying to help me. I was successfully (I think) able to root my phone. I followed the steps to install cwm 5 times and was denied 5 times. Now my computer refuses to recognize my phone at all, even after downloading the drivers from samsung and installing them 3 times. I need to take this thing in and get it looked at, because wahts the use of having a rooted phone if you can't access it on the computer (and yes I've tried every empty computer in the office) So if I take it in with a seemingly defective charging port, will they know that it's rooted? And if so, how can I unroot without being able to plug my phone in the computer?
