    Okay so I know there are other posts on how to do this by the SPRecovery nandroid backup and the sbf from Motorola but this is a simple update.zip you place on your MicroSDHC card.


    For SPRecovery
    Step 1: Flash SPRecovery(does not work with ClockworkMod recovery)

    Step 2: Download unroot_update.zip

    Step 3: Boot into recovery by using ROM Manager from the Market or Quick Boot from the Market.

    Step 3: Now in SPRecovery go to install

    Step 4: Allow update.zip installation

    Step 5: Install update.zip from the SD card

    [​IMG]

    Step 6: It should have finished and reboot

    ____________________________________________

    For Stock Recovery Image:

    Step 1: Reboot into recovery by Quick Boot from the Market

    Step 2: Press the camera and volume up buttons until you get a menu.

    Step 3: Choose to apply update.zip

    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Now it should be done and you can reboot

    Now to make sure your Droid is unroot open up your application tray and make sure you dont have Superuser Permissions, if you do start the process over by using the stock recovery image method.

    I hope this guide helped some people out :)

    All these pictures and the zip file are from RootYourDroid.Go check their site out. Thanks :)

    It's because SPRecovery struggles sometimes (i should say most of the time) when it comes to reading the SD card. Keep rebooting and sooner or later (roughly 10 times has been the general norm) and it will read it, install then. It's a common Droid issue.

    Well in the download section of rom manager there is a section where you can dowload the stock versions and you can use rom manager to flash clockworks recovery and then use the install rom feature and it does it all for you without a hitch
