    Ok I am on the step in RSD Lite where i see my device and have selected the SBF file selected but the start button is greyed out. Did I do something wrong?

    There's a few tricks in that thread to fix your problem (I'm not about to re-read all 150 pages again, as I do almost everytime I visit it), but did you extract the file so that it has a .sbf extension? Also, I _think_ you can try by putting the .sbrf file somewhere like "c:\" on your computer.

    good luck

    If I may clarify. The main thing that 'blocks' an OTA update is what is contained within the build.prop file on the phone. If certain values there 'seem' to be older than those contained within the OTA, then the OTA will be pushed to the phone. And then to further clarify, CWRecovery _seems_ to go ahead and allow these to be installed to the phone, while SPRecovery will (once you accept and try to install) fail.

    I understand bro, any help you can offer these guys is great, I wrote "busy box, I believe" as to imply my uncertainty on it. As for androot I guess I'm the only one who's got it working.

    Okay, my apologies again for the earlier post, but after some research I've found something here that may be a solution:
    http://www.google.com/reader/m/view/...5521467448&n=1
    Also check out some of these files, if your rooted, you'll need the odexed zip files.
    http://www.peteralfonso.com/p/downloads.html
    Notice the ESE81 for sprecovery, you may be able to unroot once you flash this. If so then go to the about phone and see if you can get the ota update back onto FRG01B. I sincerely hope this works for you. Also I've used the frg83D odexed zip before while rooted with custom recovery and it worked with no problems at all. However I'm not sure you'll be able to get the ota update via this method but its pretty much exactly the same as the official release.
    Not sure why you want an official firmware but I suspect that you are trying to maintain your warranty, correct?

    Everyone:

    DO NOT FLASH ESE81_RECOVERY_ONLY

    This will further bork your phone if it already has froyo on it.

    BAD2RAD:

    RSD sees the phone so thats good.

    You need to put the sbf in a shorter directory or just in C:\

    Good luck.

    Again, I must warn against this path, as guidot pointed out. And BAD2RAD is not having any troubles with updating, his/her phone already has the latest OTA update installed and now wants to reroot the phone. There is just having a problem getting RSD Lite to 'start' the flash of the proper .sbf file.

    The SPRecovery_ESE81.sbf file will ALMOST brick the phone, and will in no way help in unrooting it and should NOT be used on any phone NOT showing ESE81 in menu -> settings -> about phone.

    How is flashing an earlier firmware gonna "almost brick the phone".?If he does this using the rsd lite files on petes site, he can root while on 2.1 with a one click root application. Then using the other odexed.zip via custom recovery to get back on 2.2.1.
