I've got myself stuck in what I think is an endless loop, and I'm hoping maybe one of you has an idea to get me out...or at worst, confirm how screwed I am.
I got my shiny new Droid in the mail today. I played around with it for a bit, then took to the internet in search of ways to void the warranty immediately - something I tend to do with most gadgets. :P
Reading a few threads here, I proceeded to root the phone and start toying with custom ROMs and whatnot. my problem is this: I thought the little mod in this thread was a great idea, until I read further into the thread and saw that this would mess up the signatures of the firmware and cause future updates to fail.
Later in the day, I tried to install the 2.1 ROM seen in this thread. It failed. Not yet putting 2 and 2 together, I backpedalled on the whole rooting idea, especially considering I'd seen elsewhere that 2.1 would (hopefully) be officially on Droid in the next couple weeks.
I followed an un-rooting guide, also found on this forum. At the final step, in which one refreshes with the plain vanilla 2.0.1 update to clear su out of the system, it failed (presumably for the renamed apps).
So we come to my problem: I'm no longer rooted, so I can't rename the apps back, however I'm also unable to root again to rename them because the signature check doesn't pass when you install the hacked update via recovery mode.
Any help/ideas/confirmation of my magnificent blunder would be appreciated.
