    I recently rooted my droid, and put Froyo 2.2 on it. I changed my mind, and restored my phone back 2.1 through SPRecovery to get it back to the way I had it before I rooted it. Now how do I remove SPRecovery from it so it's back to being an unrooted droid?

    If I do this, will I lose everything I have on my phone, as in, all my contacts, apps, themes, settings and such? I would like it to look exactly how I have it now, just with SPRecovery removed, so when I do Power+X it doesnt go into SPRecovery, it just goes into what it did before the phone rooted. Thanks with the help so far

    I don't believe it's possible to flash the stock recovery over a custom recovery...hopefully another RS member can confirm/deny.

    So there is no way of removing/uninstalling SPRecovery from the droid, unless starting completely from scratch and having to redownload all my apps/games, themes and etc.?

    Also, if I have SPRecovery on my droid, and ever have to take it into Verizon, does that void the warranty? If not, I'm not so worried about having it on there.

    To my knowledge you can't install stock recovery seperate from the whole stock rom. And yes it voids your warranty.

    Ok, since I'm more then likely gonna have to start from scratch to get SPRecovery off, will MyBackup Pro be some of help in getting most of what I had on my droid back on there?

    Astro should be fine for backing up apps.

    If you flashed the 2.0.1 sbf it wouldn't be on there...you probably restored it with astro.

    Fixed it, you were right, flashed the right sbf file, and got me back to stock, and used MyBackup Pro to get me back to how I had everything before quickly. Thanks again for all the help!
