    I have a hardware issue and need to return my phone. Ive unrooted and restored a stock rom, following some directions from this forum. But I cant remember what the stock boot animation looks like, and I'm concerned that I still have the wrong one.

    Can someone describe what the stock one should look like. Or tell me how I can ensure that I have the correct boot animation installed before I return my Droid?

    Thanks

    android 2.2.2 build # FRG83G

    The stock animation is just a stationary Motorola logo that eventually disappears, then the red Droid eye with pulsating red flashes on the sides.

    I think i have the wrong annimation. Mine starts with the word "droid" being drawn on the screen in white. And then switches to the pulsing red eye. Pulsing red horizontally outward from the pupil. something like this

    Is having the wrong animation a sign of a phone being rooted? I'm worried about my warranty. If so, how can I fix it?

    The Droid eye animation sounds correct. I think you're good to go. Have you made sure the Superuser app is gone?

    Or if you want to restore the latest SBF files for the Droid 1:

    Peter Alfonso

    Latest one is the FRG83G in update.zip format

    Latest SBF is FRG83D (the one before FRG83G)

    Its best to restore using RSD Lite and using the latest SBF than using just a stock rom because they can go into your recovery and see a custom one instead of the stock one.

    Or we can not add to the reason phones are becoming further locked down... If you root and anything happens to go bad you need to suck it up, be a man, and just buy a new phone. After all, that is the contract you signed.

    Because of people like you, we have companies like motorola (trying) to completely lock phones down, all because people are selfish.

    How is returning a defective device for a hardware issue being selfish?

    on the software side, If moto is so worried about modders bricking phones and abusing the warranty for replacements, they should unlock the boot loader and provide factory recovery flash tools....Then they would have ZERO phones returned from bad flashes. they could even have the VRZ do factory reset in the store for a small fee and make some money on the side.

    Yeah I just got done returning a phone for the headphone Jack & I'm about to return my replacement for a non-functioning charging port. I guess rooting & rom-ing caused those issues. Oh well here's to driving up prices with my incessant modding.

    OP like flamous said; use a sbf from Pete's site before you send it back & it will be just like it comes out of box.

    Software issue = agree

    Hardware issue = i don't agree.

    Usually if its a software issue though, a flashing a new rom or going back to stock solves the problem.

    If its a burnt cpu because of overclocking, he should buy a new phone, i would. I wouldn't feel right returning something i purposely broke.

    It doesn't matter people. Rooting the phone = voiding the warranty. It's a risk you have to take. Doesn't matter what happens, hardware, software, crapware, freeware. Doesn't matter. Once you go down the rooting path, you have voided the warranty for the whole phone. This is the reason we are getting locked down right here. Be a man, suck it up. Don't commit fraud!
