    Hello,

    I have been using Peter's GPA15 for about two months now, but the issues with phone calls have just become too much.

    What I'd like to do is backup my existing situation and then revert back to stock, rooted Froyo.

    How could I best accomplish this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Use Pete's rooted frg83 rom. just boot into recovery, wipe everything and flash. piece of cake.

    Have you tried GPA16? It's a huge improvement over GPA15

    I have not. Does it fix the phone dialing issue?

    I could certainly give it a shot.

    I'll give it a try. Anything to stop the FC and the vibrating when I get a phone call.

    When you say "flash" do you mean w/ RSD Lite or through Clockwork Mod?

    Is it better to use Clockwork from within Android, or to rename to update.zip and use it after a reboot?

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    Subjective as is any use of the word "better". It's up to your personal preference.

    Did no 3g after a call get fixed? It's the only reason I went back to froyo from gpa15. I wasn't getting all my company exchange e-mails.

    I'm considering going back to Froyo, too. I had trouble with calls since I loaded GPA15. Last weekend, i made the switch to GPA16. worked great, but now the phone call issues are back. that is, continuous vibration after answering a call, phone software unresponsive or FC, poor 3G connectivity, etc.

    might just switch to the droid 3....
