    Okay, let me give you another link to see if it helps you. :)

    Another option if you have a non-stock recovery is to do a factory reset, flash the FRG81B master OTA update, and then update manually (or not, depending on your intent with the non-rooted, now-stock phone).

    Thank you so much. I ended up doing the other option. Crazy thing is that I had to do all of this with my screen completely black. I have my new Droid so I can gauge where i need to touch. I got my other one wet and the screen went out. I gotta send this old one back but I didn't want to send it back rooted.

    Thank you for posting this link. The link in the OP for "option 05" is not working, so I wasn't able to get the sbf. I used the above sbf, and now my D1 is back to stock for my Mom (she would not be able to handle a rooted phone, LOL).

    So, instead of returning to 2.0.1, when she activates this D1 it will already have the OTA Froyo up on it? She'll still get a few new updates right, or is this GTG (good to go)?

    FRG22D, which is current enough it should update. If you want it updated to the absolute latest then I can provide a link or two for the update packages; just manually install them.

    That would be great :)

    Reason:
    Dropped the phone and have a cracked body. Taking it back to Verizon for a new phone.

    Plan of action:
    Using the SBF file from the top of the page use RSD Lite to flash the phone back to the stock Image and get a new phone from verizon.

    Obtained:
    Latest Motorola drivers
    SBF (got it from the link that you posted at the top of this page).

    Question:
    Is that all I need to flash the phone back to the stock image or do I need something else. Is the plan of action a good plan or am I missing some steps?


    Problem:

    none as of now, but that could change, hopefully not :)

    I just wanted to say thank you for this. My droid screen started going crazy and started opening applications and "ghost" typing. I had to revert back to stock and your instructions were flawless! :icon_ banana:

    I'd ask why you waited so long to put it back to stock, but that's beside the point. :)

    If you're running a custom recovery and can boot into recovery I can link you to a file that, along with two factory resets, should clear your phone up enough to not nail you for $500.
