    A couple nights ago, I plugged my droid 2 into the charger and went to sleep. When I woke up, one of my keys was disfigured, almost as if it had been melted, and my LED light does not work at all. Darn. I do not belive this problem was related to rooting as my phone has been rooted for about 2 weeks now. I plan to take it back to Verizon and see what they can do, but obviously I need to get rid of the fact that my phone was rooted. My plan is to back all my apps to my sd via titanium, revert back to stock ROM, unroot, delete apps, switch sd cards with with another droid that has not been rooted just to be safe. Does all this sound clean?

    I was under the impression that the nandroid backups were located on the SD card. You said you took everything off your sd card, so where are the backups located?

    sorry youre 100% right haha
    i meant take full nandroid then extract everything from SD and placed it on my desktop
    (btw if youre new to sending your phone in, basically, you keep your SD card soooooooo you dont even need that step)

    He probably copied everything to his computer and then put it on the new phone when he got it.

    yeah no prob, by the way, you and i were both misinformed about the process of replacing your phone.
    basically they send you a phone WHILE you have your phone, then you keep your SD card and battery and battery cover (yeah.... you keep the cover too...) and send back the basic phone.
