    I orginally rooted and installed Bugless beast with this post:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ha...ng-only-sprecovery-terminal-emulator-zip.html

    I then "upgraded" to Blackdroid 7.8 via the nandroid restore.
    I am trying to get back to stock and not having any luck. using this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/13466-how-back-stock-no-su-no-busybox-etc.html

    I've tried both ways. The nandroid exits with error 25 and the update.zip exists with error status 7.

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance!

    It appears you have too many subfolders. You also can try link 3 in my thread too. That might be the easiest. 8 steps. Really only 7. Post back, let us know which worked for you.

    You can also do an SBF recovery as a last resort. Try what mwhartman suggested first though, SBF is the nuclear option.

    I think that's where the op got stuck. They both have the same link listed. The subfolder issue is what nandroid error 25 is....he's got extra folders in the way.

    SBF is easy though, that's why I added it to my sig.

    I was able to get it back with the nandroid restore process. update.zip just didn't want to cooperate. I think the problem was I had to many folders in /sdcard/nandroid. I had ultimatedroid 7.5 and 7.8 in there. After I deleted them, so only virgin-oem was there it worked.

    Thanks guys!
