    Hi, I have a motorolla droid 2 global the system version is 2.4 and android version is 2.2
    So, a friend rooted my phone and showed me this new background screen, it looked completelyy different, it looked like one of those other android phones not the droid ones. I told him i didn't like it so i told him to go back to normal and he did. However, he said he didnt know how to unroot and get rid of the clockwork recovery mod or the superuser. I was looking at videos on youtube and googling a way to get rid of it. I found a way to get rid of the superuser claiming that the way is getting rid of the root also>> that thing is called like z4root so i used it to unroot... super user went away but the clockwork recovery mod green/black screen when i turn on my phone stayed. So, my question is how do i get rid of it? i've seem many other posts on this forum like it but I dont understand what any of that means becauses i'm kind of new to this stuff. I looked at this one <http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x-hacks/94968-unrooted-needing-help-removing-clockworkmod-recovery.html>. However, I really didnt understand how to do it so please if someone could explain to me in a simple way, i dont understand all these words like ota or su and apk. So please help me! here is my question again .. how do i get rid of the clockwork recovery mod(green screen that pops up everytime i turn on my phone, i have to click reboot now to get out of it). Please help me!

    You my friend are about to discover the joys of sbf. But you won't be learning that from me, you will be discussing that with another person because I don't know how to sbf a D2G.

    I'll keep an eye out for you though, and try to get someone to help you. We may end up moving this thread again.

    not sure if my phone is still rooted or not however superuser is gone because i used something called z4root which claims to unroot but not sure if it does. A friend rooted my phone and showed me this new screen idk what it was but it looked like a old/new normal android background screen ui or something but it was blazzzzing fast. I didn't like it so i told him to make it go back to normal.. he did it, he said he didnt know how 2 unroot or get rid of clockwork mod so no my phone wawsnt always booying into clockwork. i think my friend got clockwork or something idk lol.

    Where are they?

    You can Google for both of these, but make sure you specify D2G in your search. RSD Lite comes from Motorola- it is the software their store techs use (I read somewhere, don't know this personally) to return your phone to stock out of the box if you take it back for something.

    RSD Lite is a program for your computer. It is a user interface to connect your computer and phone together so they can talk to each other. When you download it, make sure to get the latest drivers- I think version 4.9 is the latest.

    SBF is a file that RSD uses for your particular phone. I had to unzip the file and place the SBF file on the root of C: with my computer before RSD could find it. The SBF for the D2G is titled Droid 2 WE (World Edition.)

    To get the SBF file you will have to search again. There was a link to it on these forums but when I tried it the link was dead. Not to be deterred, I kept searching for it until I found it, but for the life of me I can't remember where it was. The searches will probably lead you back to this and some other similar forums, which will have links to it someplace in cyberspace.

    You may not need to sbf to get rid of clockwork. I heard and read something about going in and changing the logwrapper file. Gotta look around though on the forums. Its there!

    I was looking at your post on how to sbf or w/e lol and it said i need the correct dirvers for my phone... what would that be like what's the name of the driver i need to get also, after you pull your battery out (if needed) in your last step you posted and then you dial the number again... wouldn't the same thing come up again? where you have to connection to someone from verizon?

    If you look for the sbf tutorial you will find the link for the moto drivers if you don't already have them

    If you search for sbf tutorial you will find it. Find spaz on the forums. His 3rd signature has what you need. It has a link to rsd lite 4.9, the drivers and the sbf file. Make sure you get the full one.
