    How do I get back to a stock recovery in order to accept OTA?

    My phone is asking me every 30 seconds to upgrade. It won't install, because I believe that the CWM recovery is preventing it. I do not have an alternate recovery in CWM, so no luck there. I am running stock, rooted, installed with the Wug tool.

    Do I just unroot with the Wug tool or is there a better (easier!) solution?

    Any suggestions?

    I'm sure you could use wug's toolkit. I use this to go back to stock: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=188161

    I got it handled. I needed to use Wug's tool to flash the stock recovery (which is downloaded when installing Wug's the first time.) The update installed immediately after doing so. I suppose I can re flash cwm now. Wug's tool is really great, it can do whatever I need anyway. One thing, I did lose root, however, I did use Rootkeeper and it fixed it instantly.

    Let me know how it goes. On a Mac I think you need to preface your fastboot as:

    ./fastboot

    If you run into problems, I'm happy to help. I use Linux so a lot of the commands are similar.
