    Thanks ray i was hoping someone would say that from my understanding the boot strap doesn't actually affect the original boot loader so even the verizon pushed update should work too when it come available as long as i unroot, remove, the theme and dont remove any of the orginal apps. Am i on the right track?

    you can still be rooted put that file on your sdcard boot into bootstrap recovery install that file from sd card...that file will make sure all your bloatware is back on there and your theme is gone...as long as those bloatware apps and the theme is gone you are good to go. Can still be rooted and you dont have to delete any of your apps.

    Fabolous's theme remover doesnt do it if you already ran the bootstrapper.

    Read the Unbricking thread. It covers all the info you'll need for any issues with drivers/ rsd lite/ or your sbf file.

    So there is absolutely no other way to get rid of it besides reflashing the SBF? This sucks.

    Using root explorer

    Ok. Navigate to the system /bin folder. You will see three files that you need to mess with

    Hijack
    (whatever date you installed it) size
    Delete this file completely.

    then find this.....
    logwrapper
    (whatever date you installed it) rwxrwxrwx -> hijack
    ( so remove the permission,any one,from this file or you can rename it to something else or move it somewhere else. Just so the system doesnt touch this file.)(dont go back to messing with it)


    then find this file.

    logwrapper.bin
    19 aug blah blah rwxr-xr-x (remove the .bin from this file)(and i added the permissions to be similiar to the before mentioned logwrapper file.)

    then leave out of root explorer.

    reboot your phone into stock recovery and apply update.zip which you should already have on your phone's sdcard.

    From Alldroid:

    UPDATE FROM A ROOTED PHONE (running 2.1):

    If you have Koush's recovery installed, follow these steps BEFORE attempting to update to 2.2:

    1. UNINSTALL the Recovery APK in Settings, Applications
    2. Reboot
    3. Run "adb shell"
    4. Run "su"
    5. Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    6. Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    7. Reboot


    IF YOU SKIP OR OTHERWISE DO STEP 4 INCORRECTLY, YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY. PAY ATTENTION TO IT AND STEP 5 TO CONFIRM.

    1. Run "adb shell" (you need adb setup and working from a command prompt. If you don't have that, see the ADB support link in Part A)
    2. If you don't see "#", run "su" (you will see it if you've installed and run Koush's recovery bootstrapper)
    3. Run "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
    4. Run "cp /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"
    5. Run "ls /system/xbin/su" and make sure the results are `/system/xbin/su` and NOT `/system/xbin/su: No such file or directory`. If you see the later, repeat the previous step.
    6. Copy the update.zip to your sdcard (see below for mirrors as they become available. update.zip released to the wild by P3Droid at MyDroidWorld)
    7. Reboot into recovery (power down then hold down home, hold down power until you see moto logo, release power (still holding home). Once you see the triangle with ! in it, release home then press search)
    8. Run update.zip

    Success! Using Terminal emulator, I followed the same steps as posted above to remove Koush's Bootstrap Recovery and installed the Froyo leak.

    Thank you very much biggestmexi!!! I couldn't get the adb shell method to work (everything seemed to go well until I tried to actually install update.zip in stock recovery), but your way worked perfectly the first time. I definitely recommend that people try this method before employing rsd lite
