    So I was impatient a few days ago and decided to root my droid and install froyo onto my phone. alas, i'm having issues with this rooted froyo build, market apps don't appear, somewhat laggy, little things that i never really experienced with stock 2.1 and willing to now wait for verizon to push out an official 2.2 build out over the air.

    anyhows, i used rsd lite to install sprecovery ese81.spf onto my phone and then installed a rooted 2.1 rom. after that i installed a froyo build through the sprecovery i installed.

    could someone walk me through how to remove froyo and return to stock settings everywhere on the phone. i want my droid to seem as if its never been modified. so stock software and recovery image.

    i've downloaded the original recovery images of 2.0.1 and 2.1 but rsd lite keeps saying it won't work; i'm guessing i need to go down from 2.2 to 2.1 or 2.0.1 (?)

    sorry, i'm not very technical when it comes to android, more familiar with windows mobile [i know, who uses that stuff still, right?]

    thanks in advance for any help.

    ok,
    1. download rom manager(free) from the market.
    2. open it and hit flash clockworkmod recovery
    3. hit menu
    4. hit settings
    5. click advanced mode
    6. hit back
    7. go to download rom
    8. go to stock images
    9. go to(lowest one) verizon droid 2.0.1 stock
    10. wait for it to download, takes about 10-30 mins
    11. keep waiting as it will do everything for you
    12. when its done, you will probably get a notification to update to 2.1, so do so. if not, just wait, it will come eventually

    there you go, how to unroot

    Yes it does, fully stock, you might have to wipe data and cache, but I think that this does it for you

    if this works, i'll be curious... i reflashed last night and haven't been able to get the 2.1 OTA to download at all, so i'm sitting stuck on 2.0.1 at the moment until i can figure this out...

    hi droidman101, i tried your method with rom manager and the stock 2.0.1 rom, but, so far i've tried it twice, it always just boots back to the 2.2 build. i've selected the two options for backing up the current rom and wiping cache, but still it always boot back into 2.2.

    i got the instructions for installing 2.2 from Download: Newer Motorola Droid Froyo Leak FRF57 | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    OP, what version of Windows (XP, Vista, 7) are you running? Many have had success using XP. I use a Mac so this is just a thought.

    That is the recommended/suggested method. Not sure what to advise. Sorry.
