Do the stock apps need to be restored before you do this?
Yeah, what about stock apps... and also what about Superuser Permissions app?
This wipes system and boot, and restores the recovery partition on a reboot, so you will be *com*plete*ly* back to stock after.
LoL. To risk sounding like an idiot; I do not need the stock apps to use this method? I know some other methods require the stock apps to be present. I've deleted them in such a way that I can't restore them without having to jump through a few hoops. Will this restore the stock apps?
By stock apps I mean Amazon MP3, Corp Calender, et cetera.
I really appreciate the time and effort you've put forth, and I'm very thankful we have some great, dedicated people in this community that spend hours on end helping others.
Every "stock" app is in the /System partition. The only thing that's stored in /Data is stuff you get off the market or install yourself. By wiping the /System partition and installing the one in this rom you are effectively and COMPLETELY restoring your Droid to stock, as it came in the box, etc. Regardless of what you have going on there now. Same goes with the boot and recovery. This means no Root no Superuser.apk nothing but what was on the phone when you turned it on for the first time. If you REALLY REALLY want it "stock" then do a Factory Reset which will remove any app you've added by deleting /Data. Then wipe the SD card clean. This is more for people wanting to return the phone though. Hopefully this is clear and specific enough.
Thanks, you've both been extremely helpful.
Edit: Everything worked as expected! 5 stars.
This method works perfectly and does not erase any of your apps or settings that you had before! Love it! Finally have a bug free phone! i tried the sholes 1.1 and kept getting force close errors every 10 mins or so for apps i didnt even have open and it ran extremely laggy. Just couldnt take it anymore! Thank you OP!
yep Im back to stock, thanks.
Big thank you!! This worked perfectly
about to try, gotta get prepped for that 2.1
just tired and it said that E:update.zip blocked and then it said installation aborted, what gives
Helped a lot thanks!!
Didn't even erase any icon changes I did with Bettercut. Re-opened my phone to OTAs as I accepted the latest Verizon OTA earlier.
This should be added to the ultimate thread.
