    I wanted to go back to stock and someone suggested dmupdater. I downloaded it and ran it. Now my phone will turn on but cuts back off when it gets to the eye. I no longer have sprecovery. Any help would be awesome.

    Its called a bootloop, and you should still have SPRecovery installed. Hold X when you power on the phone, and do an advanced nandroid restore, and restore to your previous state.

    And if that doesnt work you can restore with the sbf. You arent even close to bricked. Dont sweat it.

    I wish it were bootloop. It isn't looping. It just turns off and will not try to come back on until I take the battery out and put it back in. I only have stock recovery

    before you do sbf, try putting battery in hold x while you power on. You should be able to restore from back up.

    So you havent actually run the updater all the way through. It's up to you to decide how to proceed.

    I have a copy of the virgin oem rom on my sdcard. Could I just rename it update.zip and select apply sdcard:update.zip in recovery mode?

    ep 4b: Using Stock Recovery Console Using the directional pad, navigate to “apply sdcard:update.zip” and push the gold, center button to select it.
    [​IMG]
    The update process will begin immediately and should take no longer than a minute or two. It will let you know when the process is complete.

    Navigate to “reboot system now” to reboot your Droid and complete the process of Unrooting.

    Step 5: Ensure your Droid is Unrooted
    Once your Droid has rebooted, open the app list. If everything worked properly, you should no longer see the Superuser Permissions app with the Ninja icon. If you used the Removing Default Verizon Apps guide, you should also notice that the apps you removed have now been restored. If you had flashed SPRecovery to your Droid, this too will be gone and be replaced with the stock Recovery Console.
    You are now safely Unrooted. One thing you may want to do is clean up any Root-only apps you may have installed, but this is not necessary.
