    i had posted some questions after looking for some info about making my phone back to its stock configuration to turn it in. i had found 3 different guides but my anti virus program keeps flagging the sites and files. i am running "Kaspersky Antivirus and Internet 2010". i thought it may be just that program blocking the sites, but i tried it on my parents computer and they are running a norton antivirus. it was blocked on theirs too. but here is my questions. any info and help is greatly appreciated. and yes, lol. i know throwing a phone against a tv is a bad idea. lol. question 4 is the one i can't seem to be able to fix right now. and was blocked from the sites being flagged by anti virus programs.

    "i have a situation for y'all. i have the original droid. and have had it since about april or may. i love it and have several paid apps that i very much want to keep. like esp pdanet for tethering. it is by far the best that i found. but anywho. last night i got a little ticked off and accidentally threw my phone against a tv. oops. it works after i put the pieces back together. it is bent pretty bad, the screen has come loose but works. and it slides but only with some strong pressure. i have the insurance on it. i live where the new LTE service will be comming soon. "Charleston, WV" and was wondering what do y'all think i should do."

    1. get a new phone now?
    2. wait until the new LTE phones come out and the service?
    3. i love my droid, is the droid 2 rootable now?
    4. the BIG question, how in the heck to i restore my droid to original configuration to exchange it if i have to?

    any help is greatly appreciatedd.

    Flash your droid with the sbf file using rsd lite. You can find the sbf file here:

    peteralfonzo.com

    Flashing the droid with the sbf file will return it to out of the box condition as far as software is concerned. You will have your paid apps available to load on your insurance replacement, because apps are associated with your Google account.

    Make an insurance claim, pay your deductible, and you are good to go.

    Yes, the droid2 is rootable.
