    I have seen a lot of different how to's on getting back to a stock 2.01 or 2.1, but I have question or two I haven't seen the answers for yet.

    I need to know how to I get my phone to be as if it was never rooted (and actually be unrooted) out of the box, but get an unrooted 2.1 onto it? I need this for a couple of reasons:
    1 - I need to be able to have the phone's ESN switched over to another person's phone number.
    2- It needs to be able to get the OTA 2.2 (if it ever shows). I need this because the person getting the phone has no idea, nor wants to, how to do any rooting.

    So if this info is out there an I missed it (good chance) can someone please get me the links to it?

    Thanks a million!

    If you did a backup when you first rooted, you should be able to install that backup-I think.

    Follow the link in my signature. There you will find instructions how to unroot (below the root section). If that does not work, then follow my other link to the Rescue Squad's thread and post a question and we will assist you.
