    A while back I rooted my droid to install the European browser so I could get multitouch. Now when I go to install 2.1, the system check fails because of the different Browser.apk. Is there any way to undo this hack and get the old browser back so I can upgrade?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who installed the multitouch browser early.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you already unroot your phone before you tried to update to 2.1?

    No I didn't. Can I do this without wiping my phone?

    Not sure whether it will wipe or not, but you MUST unroot to install the official 2.1

    Can't unroot, trying to install the 2.0.1 update file that would unroot results in the same error as trying to install 2.1

    Let me try to assure you that DMupdater is probably the quickest and easiest way to go back to stock. I've done it 3 times. You may have to do a factory reset afterwards to get your voice capabilities back but that doesn't always happen and a soft reset does not lose your apps.

    Whatever you decide, good luck.

    2.1 update error, not rooted

    My phone used to be rooted, but hasn't been for weeks. I installed the 2.1 update. It didn't give me error after installing. However, I obviously don't have 5 home screens and my gallery says is NOT installed. The firmware says it is 2.1. How do I fix this???? I know VZ will just tell to wipe the phone and start over.

    Ok here is what I need.

    Can someone who has a stock 2.0.1 or 2.0 Droid send me the Browser.odex, Browser.apk, and libmtwebcore.so files. The locations can be found in the instructions to install the multitouch browser that I posted earlier. This would be GREATLY appreciated and should not be too hard.
