    Ok guys, im in a sort of an odd predicament here.
    (btw i know android terminology so dont fear to explain complex things)
    i had a rooted droid, UD 8.0, overclocked and all, then my friend dropped it and the screen TOTALLY broke.
    now the odd thing is, the phone works, i can work the phone with my known memory of menus and screens, so i have backed up the entire thing through SPRecovery, mounted the USB, downloaded my entire SDCard, and wiped Data.
    Now before i send it back to Verizon, i need to install or flash STOCK froyo or 2.1 or 2.0 ANYTHING stock.... mind you i can use the bare minimum provided by SPRecovery, maybe even some ADB, i havent tried.

    If you can't mount then the only option I can think of is to remove the SD card and use a micro SD card reader, insert into your computer , remove any existing update.zip files then drag and drop the stock.

    If you can not access anything on the phone then you may need to return to VZW as is. You need to ask yourself, if the screen is broken how will they know.
    Frankly, with the condition of the phone your options are very limited.

    You frustration should be directed to the friend that dropped the phone.

    To get the phone to stock you do not need to put aything on the sdcard so no need to mount. As long as your battery has a good charge and you can get into the bootloader screen (holding up while powering on) you can flash back to 2.0.1.

    Link 2 in my sig, Option 1 then option 5

    oh yeah! awesome thank you! ill actually just use my dad's droid2 and do the same thing, maybe on astro or something.
    yeah i was thinking about that, how much do the verizon employees really scrutinize.... but still, im sure they have their tools to maybe route the display to another output, so they can like, see my screen on another screen.
    whatever
    thanks alot man, you just saved my life...ish :)

    IT WORKED!
    as far as i can tell, im back to stock 2.0.1
    when i boot holding X, nothing happens when i press the camera button
    and when you are in the default recovery thing the POWER BUTTON is supposed to make it reboot, i pressed the power button and it rebooted
