    Also, did Google move the download for the 2.1 update? All the links to Google servers that I have found here have been broken.
    ^this. I'm starting to get the feeling that once you enter the rabbit hole, there's no climbing back out.

    RSD Lite is not allowing me to start the application of the 2.1 sbf.

    Any ideas? I used this method when rooting originally, then mistakenly restored to my stock 2.1 backup at one point... leaving me with SPRecovery and an unrooted device. I want to do the stock OTA 2.2, but am unable to apply the update with SPRecovery installed (error 7).

    Just trying this method to get 100% stock back on my phone - but when I browse for an select the 2.01 sbf, the "start" button is grayed out. I am running it as administrator (windows 7, 64bit). And this method worked great when rooting, fwiw.

    ? thanks!

    Just curious. Why go through all this trouble of using the finicky RSD Lite 4.6 when you can use ROM Manager to restore to stock unrooted 2.0.1/ESD56?

    Also, just for kicks, I have almost every file known to man ever posted for the Droid 1 in my folder below in a huge and hard to read list with no descriptions, including the signed-voles-ESE81-from-ESD56.fa406da6.zip file. Of course you have to have the stock recovery image on your 2.0.1/ESD56 phone to use that one.

    good luck

    mainly because i was unaware of that option.

    where should i go for info on this method? didn't find anything by searching.

    also, i do not have (and have never had) any custom ROMS installed (hence no need for ROM manager). Just used a custom kernel for overclocking purposes.

    thanks!

    Do you happen to have or know where to get the stock kernel that originally came with the droid? I was able to get back to stock 2.1, but am having issues with the kernel and really want to go back to stock? Thanks in advance!

    For one, if you're not rooted, I didn't think SPRecovery would work. As for ROM manager, I don't know if you need the paid version or not, but once installed, open it, go to Download Rom, then Stock images, and 2.0.1 is in the list. For removal of SPRecovery try these commands either via terminal or ADB shell (assumes though you still actually do have root):

    Code:
    1. su
    2. mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    3. mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p.old /system/recovery-from-boot.p.
    4. mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    5. sync
    6. reboot

    First off, please go here on your phone:
    menu -> settings -> about phone and tell us exactly what kernel version is shown. Usually 'getting back to stock' by using a stock rom, nandroid backup, or whatever, also flashes the boot.img file which contains the kernel.

    good luck
