How i went back from 2.2 OTA to 2.1 root
hello everyone, i know alot of you have been have some issues reguarding the 2.2 update, and going back to 2.1 with root access. For me, it was a bumpy ride so i figure i share what i did, to go back.
So first off, i have a droid, and ive been running the froyo roms since they were first leaked, and ie been loving it. my girfreind juts got a droid 2 days ago, and i immeaditly updated it to the 2.2 OTA thinking it would be way better than the roms. after a while she said she didnt like it and wanted to do all the things i can do with my rooted phone. So me, thinking i can just load up SPrecovery, and them a 2.2 costum rom back on to her phone. i was wrong and all of the sudden she started getting instant forcloses, and the batter would look like it was dead, and got no service. i thought i had messed her phone up for sure, so i tried everything to go back, but nothing was working.
I then got the bright idea of trying to unroot and go back to 2.0.1 via RSDlite. sure enough, i was able to unroot, and go back to stock, using the file i found in this post:
After loading that i rebooted, and downloaded the ese81 from esd51 from petes website, loaded it via the stock recovery, and now i had 2.1
Lastly, i flashed SPrecovery and loaded up BB .04 and im running great! i hope this helps out anyone having problems downgrading!
