    New/replacement phone

    Hey guys, Im sorry if this is in the wrong area so feel free to move it.

    Im getting a replacement phone for my Droid because the keyboard is actually peeling up off the lower half. I have two questions for you guys/gals that I feel I know the answer to both.

    When I get my new phone I do plan on re-rooting it. Once it's rooted can I nandroid restore my current settings? or is that a nono?

    Second - as a safety issue - should I unroot my current phone? or will it be lost in the loops and not even matter?

    Thank you,
    Michael

    Unroot because rooting voids your warranty, remove ALL PROGRAMS associated with rooting like cache cleaners and set cpu, I recommend putting it back to a NIB (new in box) state.

    Second you can use your nandroid back ups on your new phone, just make sure they don't give you a droid 2 or you'll have trouble, just save all your files to your computer so when you get the new phone you can just slap everything on the sdcard

    Yeah I really dont think I will get a droid 2. They usually only replace with a new model if you have multiple complaints on the same issue and you have to agree for a new phone. It may be a little suspicious that I would 100% request a droid 1 back - but who cares.

    I do really like the droid 2, and can even have it rooted - but without pete, life wouldn't be complete.

    Let us know what state youre in and what phone you receive. Inventory varies by region, and it has nothing to do with complaints. If on a given day they dont have your replacement phone in stock theyll send you another.

    I just got a warranty replacement on tuesday in San Diego CA and did not get a droid 2. VZW shipped a refurbished droid 1 to me.

    My screen stopped working so it was a pain to get mine back to stock, im not even sure if it succeeded but oh well i sent it back after flashing it stock 2.2 in rsd lite.

    I rooted my new droid 1 on frg22d with no roms or kernels using this method Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version My phone has never ran better . I will still be trying out new roms just because its fun but it was really easy. And my nandroid of bbv.4 is still there if i need it.
