    Ok, let me explain what I did (I have a Droid 2.1)

    Rooted phone with easy root
    Tried to download overclocking kernel
    Downloaded Rom Manager
    Flashed ClockworkMod
    Put Kernel.zip (it was compatible with 2.1) on SD Card root menu
    Rebooted using clockwork
    Didn't do backup to Nandroid (STUPID ME!)
    Installed Kernel.zip
    Rebooted and stuck on M logo
    Freaked so I cleared everything/factory reset after realizing I didnt do backup, formatted everything, now there is nothing on SD card
    Keep rebooting and it is stuck on M logo, going into recovery mode brings up ClockWorkMod recovery but there is nothing left to do there.

    Is there anyway I can get the phone back to stock 2.1? Am I still rooted or can I take the phone back to store for replacement?

    I'm really ticked off for this noobish mistake, but if there is any way to remedy this any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Have you read this sticky in the FAQ?

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-faqs/39254-sbf-root-unroot.html


    I followed that sticky after doing the OTA to 2.2. I flashed on a 2.1 SBF, then I flashed SPrecovery. After that, i searched a bit for the ROM I wanted and ended up doing the Ultimate Droid 6.0. with Chevy's 1.2 GHz kernal, and the latest baseband.

    One more thing, doing everything from the link you provided got me to stock unrooted 2.01. I went to settings to check for updates for 2.1 and nothing, anyone know why it won't pick up the OTA update?

    Don't even wait for it.

    If you had CW installed you could have just installed a rom but now you should not even wait for the OTA, just use that same link and do option 2 to flash SPR if you haven't yet, then just install a custom Rom and BAM, you are rooted
