    need serious help

    While trying to unroot my phone I have ran into some issues.

    1. I have some how denied myself access to my settings and everytime I try to get into my superuser permissions it force closes.

    2. I am using the clockwork rom manager and everytime I try to boot into recovery it tells me I don't have access. Even when I do the power+x to boot into recovery I can't see the menu at all.

    3. I can't make calls, but can receive them. Everytime I try to push my phone icon it tells me the phone application is not installed.

    Any help would be amazing!

    1-if you unroot, ur superuser app isnt going to work.

    2-same thing here. CW needs root to work.

    3-did you delete something when you were rooted?

    and how are u unrooting? I assume you have the droid 1?

    Yes it is the droid 1.

    I was using the youtube video from droid review. He had a tutorial on how to unroot and it was a zip file that he had to rename update, but when I ran it through and went into recovery it said it failed. So I went back to the clockwork rom manager and did a revert to the stock settings and that installed fine, but that's when I found out I couldn't get the settings to come up and the superuser quit working. I noticed this morning after church that there was no way for me to dial out, but can receive calls.

    Thanks for your help!

    if you got back to stock, id say do a quick factory reset to fix the dialing problem and see if that fixes anything.

    I tried that, but when I tried to get into the recovery to do a factory reset all I saw was an exclamation point inside a triangle with the droid next to it. No usual menus or anything... any other suggestions? Is there away using a terminal emulator to bypass it or a program to fix everything I messed up?

    You can do the factory data reset via the phone's menu system. Go here:

    menu -> settings -> privacy -> factory data reset

    And to enter the menu system on the factory recovery system, you hold the volume up button and the press the camera button.

    good luck

    Thanks Abe! You're the man! Got it back up and running. Stupid question: since I did the factory reset from stock does that mean I'm unrooted? Or do I need to do something else. Reason asking is my wireless tether and shoot me don't work. Haven't tried clockwork rom manager yet.

    factory reset does not remove root. but if you applied the stock update.zip then that would do it.
