    Wow dude, really? :icon_eek:

    The OP asked what was the easiest way to get his phone back to a new, out of the box state, including wiping ROM, root access and De-Odexing...and your advice is to throw on Apex and overclock the phone...:icon_eek: Did you actually even bother to read the question asked? Or, maybe, did you have a bout of premature postulation?


    To the OP, about the easiest way I can recommend to you, seeing as you seem to be knowledgeable with this type stuff, is to use maderschramms update zip file linked down below in my signature. Download it and follow all the instructions listed in that thread...should get you where you want to be...:)

    Yeah, see, thats the thing...he wasnt asking anyone how to get his phone "running on best performance", whatever you might think that is, now was he?

    Again, he asked how to get his phone back to a "stock" out of the box state....something you supplied absolutely no discernible help with. :icon_eek:

    I am sure if you carried your car to mechanic and asked him to change the oil, you wouldnt be quite this cavalier when he came back and told you he crushed it because he thought it was a piece of junk and wasnt worth an oil change. Afterall, you just wanted the oil changed...that was what you asked for... Same thing applies with your response to the OP`s original question.

    Really, is this too hard to understand? As the old saying goes, "If you arent a part of the solution, then you are part of the problem".

    Yes. In a nutshell it removes all modifications and sets the device back to stock, un-rooted.

    Make sure you read the thread and understand each step, and then follow the steps precisely. If you have any trouble, shoot maderschram a PM and I am sure he will help if he can...good luck!

    Um, I think that's the point. Just like your mechanic crushing your car cuz it's what he wants to do, you gave no good advise on how to reset a phone back to stock because you don't want to run a stock phone.

    Just like the car analogy, if he wants an oil change (reset his phone to stock) give him an oil change (tell him how to get back to out of box stock) and leave all other opinion based advise out. That really was pretty simple to understand.

    Now your other option is to run the 2.3.340 sbf through rsd lite. If your not entirely familiar with rsd the maderschramm zip file is probably your best bet.

    Since the OP got his answer and everyones gone off topic here I'm closing this. Qman66 in the future it is best to answer someone question and not just state what you would do. It defeats the purpose and adds confusion.
