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.
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.
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.
- mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
- mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p.old /system/recovery-from-boot.p.
- mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
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.
