    My power button is unresponsive so, in order to get a replacement when I send it in, I'm trying to unroot. I tried just updating using the ota update.zip and get an error. How can I unroot without using the power button? I'm running Bugless 6.2.1 with clockwork recovery.

    Download Quick Boot (the free version) and boot into the bootloader. Flash the SBF file.

    Everytime I try to get into the bootloader, the os comes up.

    Try plugging the USB cord into your computer (other end attached to your droid of course) and turn the phone on. See if that boots you into the bootloader.

    EDIT: This suggestion probably won't work because of your power button failure.

    Download the terminal emulator app from the Market. Then type in this command after you open it:

    SU (hit enter)
    reboot bootloader (hit enter)

    Also if that doesn't work, do a battery pull. Then re-insert the battery. Hook up your D1 to the charger while holding up on the D-pad.

    I'm assuming you have warranty and That's why your sending it in. But you know you can edit a file in root explorer to remap the hard keys? You can kill the power button and have the camera button on the side be the screen on/off button. Just a suggestion. My power button I can't even feel when its pushed in. I tested the method to make sure it works and It does, cuz I'm gonna have to do that very soon I'm planning.

    Alright so you can at least get to the bootloader now. That's good. Try unzipping a new zip file containing the SBF. Sometimes it doesn't download properly.
