    Understood, but Verizon knows the OS didn't just disappear.
    So basically even though it voids the warranty, they don't appear to care. If that's the case why are they making it so difficult to make changes?

    The question is rhetorical.

    You can't find out that it's been rooted if there's nothing on the phone to begin with.

    I made a simple error. I've rooted my phone several times, I know the drill, the method and yes, I've even messed it up before, having to use RSD to SBF it back to stock. I KNOW how to do that. Tell me, O WISE ONE, do you know how to fix this problem? If not, are YOU too stupid?

    The problem is that I just got a little too button happy and wiped the cache before my phone had a chance to boot first. Oops. My Bad.

    I totally understand that too. I'm not arguing against it. I have seen Droid phones though get bricked through an OTA update. Hell, when I was on TMo and had the G1, it happened to me. It's not unheard of, just rare.

    You should really read p3droid's post from the link i threw up. Then maybe you'll understand.

    Carriers CAN find out that you're rooted, and log your phone's MEID.

    OS's dont just disappear from a phone.

    All these manufacturers locking down the bootloader, making it harder to root, etc, are because of people voiding the warranty by rooting and then soft bricking, who then try to ABUSE the system and try to make a warranty claim like you said you're going to do.

    I did read that post. I knew about this before when p3 posted about it. Dude, I'm not dumb. I never even made a warranty claim for it (technically). I actually took the phone to a verizon store and they couldn't even get it to reprogram. They were the ones that decided to send me another one.

    But that's my point. If the modifications void the warranty, and they can tell when they receive it that it was messed up by the user, why bother making modifications difficult? Just make them pay for the replacements.
    That will be enough to deter a large number of people from making modifications.

    All that discussion aside, and to the original topic... do you guys know of a way to get the OS back onto the phone?

    -.- i guess the most obvious question is, can you go into clockwork recovery and do a restore?

    If there's a specific button combination to get into it, then let me know, otherwise, I can only get into stock recovery.

    Has anyone looked for a signed full update file. You should be able to flash that through the stock recovery if its signed right.

    Okay, I just did the same frickin' thing to my X. Any ideas how to fix this? I have no plans whatsoever to make a claim, so any help would be appreciated.

    Basically, I also wiped before rebooting and am now stuck because rsd wants to think my phone is a USB drive and refuses to recognize the phone. I've sbf'd before and didn't have a problem.
