    Cannot uninstall Smoked Glass - Help Please!

    I posted this in the main Smoked Glass thread, but it's moving along pretty good and got buried.

    I can't seem to uninstall Smoked Glass 5.0 from my Droid. I have tried going to my backup and a complete wipe and it keeps coming back. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here is what I posted in the other thread:

    Thank you!
    Hmmm. I tried to restore and it just went back to Smoked Glass. So I tried to wipe it new, and SPRecovery is coming up again. I seem to be in an endless loop!

    Did you make a recovery in nandroid before installing, or are did you just rely on the built-in recovery in 5.0? Is it possible that you flashed it twice, and you're restoring to the recovery that was made when Smoked Glass was already installed?

    I have a backup that I made manually before I installed SG for the first time, and I've been able to return to it repeatedly without a problem.

    see option 3, in my signature, then reroot and try to recover.
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    When you try to recover, do you have multiple backups, or just one?

    I am holding X while powering on. First screen is SPRecovery options and I pick backup/restore. If I choose advanced backup it gives me the option of:
    restore boot, cache, data, misc, recovery, system. But it doesn't give me multiple backups to choose from.

    If you are trying to recover, you should be going to Advanced Restore, not Advanced Backup. From there, select "Choose Backup", and it should give you a list of previously made backups to restore from. Advanced Backup allows you to make backups, Advanced Restore allows you to restore from said backups.

    This part confused me when installing SG4.5
    I had to go to backup to choose the rom and then "restore" it to flash it. I expected to be able to "restore" and choose from a list there, not have to go to "backup" choose the name and then restore. Much easier installing 5.0
