    hey,

    So one of my coworkers got an X because she saw mine....she got hers and of course started complaining about battery life and wanting to make it look "cool" blahh blahh blahh

    I offered to load a ROM onto it to help the battery life and get rid of the bloat (as she wanted)

    after all that she tells me she wants it back to stock....

    sooo how can I get rid of the tranquility ROM and go back to semi stock (device will still be rooted)...I had created a back up before flashing but it looks like that didnt save?

    or if you know how to transfer contacts from a BB 8330 that would work as well

    Look for the "back to stock" option.

    Make a backup before you attempt this, obviously, and hope it takes. And never root another person's phone for them, this is what happens. :)

    Did the update.zip install take or did you get an error during the install?

    Glad to hear it's working. The contacts should have been backed up with Google and restored as soon as the phone booted back up after the wipe.

    I'm sure there is, but I'm not familiar with it. Don't worry, though, you haven't been forgotten. :)

    Just make sure you're using the right SBF. There are a couple of them kicking around that will brick the phone.

    I don't think so.

    From the thread.

    "Only use this if you tried to update through the official 2.2 ota and its stuck at the M.

    Dont use this if you tried to update to official 2.2 got stuck and then tried to restore using 2.1

    Dont use this to upgrade to 2.2 from 2.1"

    So I don't know. Considering the replacement cost I wouldn't risk it till someone said for sure that's what you want.
