    Downgrade from Official 2.2 Froyo to Stock 2.1

    So, on my Motorola Droid. I was rooted on unofficial 2.1 then decided to unroot, HARD reset my phone wipe everything and start fresh to download the newly released manual update for Froyo 2.2!

    I downloaded, installed it and all that good stuff. Now I'm wondering about how to downgrade from Official 2.2 to Official 2.1-update1 because I want to root once back on Stock 2.1 to Pete's rooted Froyo 2.2 ROM!

    Thank you for any help!

    I believe you can just put the 2.1 update.zip on your SD card, boot to stock recovery, then install update.zip.. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    It should work but where do you get the firmware update?

    I cannot find the update anywhere. Not only that... but why is this update impossible to revert it seems? Any factory reset should always reset it to out the box and then update from there.

    I'm getting really frustrated with 2.2. It constantly freezes on me, the battery is getting very hot, and I'd rather just get back to stock.

    Just purchase Easy Rooter for a buck. You should be able to go back to 2.1 that way, but I don't know why you would. http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/moto_droid.pdf

    I'm having the same problem with the aborted update for 2.1. I'm also trying to get back to 2.1 from 2.2. Does anyone have the 2.1 update.zip file? I can't find one anywhere.
