    OK so I have an OG droid, running SS 5.4 with rzr. I wanna give this phone to my brother since I'm upgrading to a D3. I wanna format the SD card for him. Will resetting the phone and wiping the sd card cause me to lose this ROM and recovery? I know it won't wipe the root but not sure about the other 2.

    Thanks

    It should not cause you to lose that rom you can reinstall the rom and have it run threw the begining just like you did and it will stay on there with out your memory card

    I formatted the drive and wiped the data but I'm stuck in a "M" loop, I was able to restore it back, any idea why I can't factory reset it?

    have you tried reinstalling the rom at all and as far as recovery if you rooted the handset with a permanent root then the recovery such as clockworkmod or nandroid should stay on the phone.
