: if you are currently running the rooted stock rom that has NOT been modded (unmodded and untouched system files ONLY), then unrooting is NOT nessessary... simple download the Android update and let it install... you may loose root, but you can always re-root it.

If the install fails... then you have modded the stock ROM... re-flash to the original rooted stock ROM that you made a backup of in STEP 1 of any modding process. Then install the Update... If you failed to make a backup as requested in ALL STEP 1 processes, then you are SOL.... Facts of Life... sorry

If you are running a custom ROM, re-flash to the original rooted stock ROM that you made a backup of in STEP 1 of the custom ROM install. Then install the Update... If you failed to make a backup as requested in ALL STEP 1 processes, then you are SOL.... Facts of Life... sorry

if you are SOL... you will need to google an RUU tool for the HTC Sensation XE. RUUs are like master factory resets on crack.... instead of just wiping all user data on the current installed ROM, an RUU will FORMAT the entire internal memory and reinstall the OEM and Wireless Carrier unrooted Stock ROM from sratch.... but becareful... if you use the WRONG RUU tool or file type, you can turn your phone into a huge plastic paperweight that will not even turn back on ever again... so make sure you have the right RUU

and on your next Android phone.... make sure you make a backup of your rooted stock ROM in clockworkmod recovery 2 seconds after rooting it.... this is your fail-safe in case you ever do brick your phone....
