I've got a first-gen HTC Incredible rooted with CM7.1 I want to get rid of, but I don't know what to do with it.

I've listed it on eBay twice (Buy It Now), dropping the price the second time, and hardly even got any hits. I'm not even 100% sure what it's worth. I listed it at $130 shipped, which is about equivalent to the other Incredibles sold, but mine was the only rooted one.

I could just make it an auction, but I'm worried I'd get too little for it. And there's the eBay Instant Sale, but I'm not sure if they'll accept a rooted device and they're only offering $60 anyway.

Is it possible to unroot and return to the stock firmware? I know very very little about custom ROMs...barely managed to install CM in the first place. I've tried navigating Android forums to find out and it's all way over my head.

Check Androidcentral and xda-developers forums for help taking the phone back to stock. You should be able to though.
