    that eases my mind alot!
    is there any way to 'quick and dirty' undo the root? will the SU "unroot" do it?

    Thank you all for doing all this.
    I realize how many people are involved since i screwed up my restoring by backuping the wrong file and then the restore is lame :)
    Sadly, it looks like the last link is not going nice. I have extra ftp storage available that i would be happy to share for one half gig file that made my day

    Pm me if you want storage for this, and also, how could i get this file so my phone might get back up?

    Thanks in advance

    is this concerning sys. updates? i.e. returning to stock from an otherwise up-to-date phone is not recommended & I should use 98.72.182 or 98.72.188 instead of:

    or is that referring to something else entirely? Are there any precautions re: memory cards in place while doing this &/or is there a way to do this via (micro)SD card, even say, a separate memory card?

    you should use the same system version or newer
    will not effect internal or external memory cards,
    you need a pc to flash .xml firmware

    Does this step initiate some sort of communication w/ RSDLite for this next step?

    I ask b/c when I click on the "..." button it pulls up my Documents folder w/o any evident "fastboot image .zip file." Where am I supposed to find that? That's not a Motorola USB Driver from Step 3, right? Is it something RSDLite is supposed to be viewing from the Droid itself? Thanks for the help friends. I'm looking at you Ninjas & Masters.
