    Can it be done? I know it's recommended to fully wipe the phone in between roms, but right now I'm getting a BSOD on boot, and I have some data I'd like to save. It only needs to be reliable enough for me to back up my data, then I can do a full wipe and fresh install. I don't even really care what rom it is, as long as I can still flash back to stock, as I have a replacement phone coming in tomorrow and this needs to be unrooted and returned.

    I only have the stock recovery unfortunately. I've been trying to find or create an update.zip that I can use to restore the launcher, but I've been failing miserably on all fronts.

    Alright, I was able to fxz 905 without wiping data via HoB, and it left me in the same boat as before--bsod on boot. I still need to find a way to wipe the dalvik and remove/reinstall a launcher program via recovery.
