    I have had a lot of fun with my rooted droid, UltimateDroid and Cyanogen are amazing, but I am trying to go back to a stock droid. I have my retail droid Rom on there but when I hold X and reboot it takes me to Nandroid.

    I figured that you could just flash the update.zip from the sdcard, but I don't have the stock one. Is there a place to get that?

    Thanks for all of the help in advance..

    When i was questioning about whether rooting was a good idea, I wondered if you could go back to stock and keep Nandroid. It's been a great tool for restoring when things go wrong.

    Good luck with it.

    I am back to stock, I am just worried that if I unroot my phone with Nandroid installed will I still be able to get over the air updates.

    you will get the ota as long as you do not have recovery image 099.3. Now the ota may disable the nandroid back up but do not know for sure.
