    Hey guys,

    I have a rooted Bionic with the original Bionic Bootstrap that was released. It has the original .866 kernel and is currently running version 2 of Liberty3; I installed Liberty3 as soon as as the stable v2 was released. I would like to get back to completely stock so I can OTA to .902 and install Safestrap instead of Bootstrap. What is the easiest and safest way to do this?

    Will the instructions outlined on this page work: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ates-your-modified-motorola-droid-bionic.html

    Thanks,
    Rain

    No need to use moto-fastboot yet. Did you make a backup of your stock system in bootstrap? If so, you can just use that. Then you will be back on your stock system and take the OTA update.

    Lol, if I remember correctly, when I tried to backup the stock system it errored out and instead of trying it again, I just thought "Ahhh, screw it!" and went ahead and flashed Liberty3. That was a while ago though, maybe I did back it up and copy the .zip to my computer (it isn't on the phone anymore....).

    Let's just assume I don't have the original backup, is moto-fastboot the next best thing? What about Bionic Path Saver (Bionic Path Saver 1-Click Method - MyDroidWorld)?

    Moto fastboot will be challenging for your situation. Pathsaver is not needed. I just helped a guy with the same situation. If your available...i can help.

    Thank you, Eye_Dea! RSD Lite looks perfect. I'm not even going to bother with the edited xml file, I'm just going to completely start over and erase everything. (After backing it all up, of course).

    U might need some help...i have some time.
    No need to wipe internal...use the edited file.
    There is more steps than just clicking on rsdlite.
    Let me know.

    RDS Lite was definitely the best way to restore to factory. Thanks for the help and suggestions Eye_Dea!

    Now its time to re-flash Liberty3 or some new ROM because Blur is so terrible!! :D
