    I have had my phone rooted since I got it over a year ago...I'm kind of tired of all the ROMS as of now and want to go back to stock everything... I can't seem to find a thread explaining this for me exactly. Can anyone tell me or point me to a thread that will explain how to go back to complete stock Droid 1?

    Install the FRG83D update. If that won't work, install the FRG22D update, then the FRG83D update.

    If it were me I'd be running a stock-like ROM like CyanogenMod since there's so MUCH more I can do with it, but if stock ye wish then stock ye shall have. :D

    You said you wanted bone-stock, right? Well, unless Clockwork is more poorly-coded than I gave it credit for it'll install those updates. Installing any of those updates will put you back to bone stock.

    Oh, and don't count on there being any more updates. This phone has been EOL for months now and, while I'm hopeful that stock users will see Gingerbread, the money isn't on that happening, ever. Gingerbread will probably remain available only for rooted users.

    Anyway, to finish the initial thought, any OTA update will unroot your device AND replace custom recovery images. So, again, unless Clockwork won't install the updates (in which case ROM Manager will flash SPRecovery onto your phone which WILL), when you're done you'll be bone stock.

    Now, if that isn't enough, you can wipe your phone clean with RSD Lite and the proper SBF. But you lose all your user data.

    Hello Mammal-

    I am getting a D1 in a couple of days to fool around with (I have the DX but no CM or BB so I got the D1 to just fool around).

    I would like to obtain the SBF for the D1. Can you pm me since they don't like SBF links and the such on the forum.

    thanks if you can. I appreciate it.

    Thanks a bunch. Can you answer a question for me? I am running the DX. SBF'ing on the X is very serious business bc of the locked bootloader. For instance I am running 2.2.1 now. So if I used the sbf for 2.2 I would brick my phone bc of the bootloader.

    The D1 doesn't have a locked bootloader -so does that mean that it doesn't have that same problem? I bought a D1 it is running CM 6. If I wanted to go back to stock - can I flash the SBF you pointed me to?

    thanks again.

    You should be able to SBF to 2.2.

    The D1 can take any D1 SBF at any time, no questions asked, as far as I know. :)

    The bootloader is totally open except when rebooting into FRG22D-83D. Then it attempts to replace the recovery image with stock unless a script is run.

    Just to make sure -the link you posted was not 22d-83d? is 22d-83d the latest release for the d1?

    Thanks for the clarification. I misunderstood it to be frg22d dash 83d. But you are saying there is an sbf for frg22d and an sbf for frg83d. which one is the latest release for the d1?

    thanks. I am preparing for the arrival of my d1. I have the x right now so things are a little bit different.

    also - do you know if z4root works with frg22d?

    No I'm not. :)

    If anyone has an 83D SBF they're not sharing, but we don't need one because 22D will update to 83D.

    You're making this so much more difficult than it has to be. The SBF I gave you will fix your phone in case of a catastrophic failure. Other than that, don't worry about that or any other full SBF. z4root will root 22D, but it will not give you a custom recovery image. I mentioned something about that, remember? :) That's why I pointed you at link 2 in my signature. Go read it, it will save you some time.

    I read it before I posted actually. I did notice that some things are out of date. For instance you reference rsdlite 4.6. I am using 4.9 right now. So I wasn't sure if the guide was still up to date.

    Besides that- for some one with my skill sets -it would be easier to

    1. sbf
    2. install z4root.
    3. dl rom manager.
    4. flash clockwork recovery (it is the recovery I have got used to with the x and we are creatures of habit).
    5. be done.

    I really do appreciate all the help. sorry for all the questions. It's just with the DX you have to be very careful. so i guess that is carrying over with me.

    Hate ROM Manager. On the D1 causes more problems, more lost recoveries, more corrupted backups than any other issue I've worked on. Hate it with a burning passion. But that's personal choice, I guess. :)

    And no, you're not done.

    Hmm. Well, I don't actually use rom manager to do my backups and instalations. I use clockwork recovery. Unless that's what you meant?

    I am not done? Perhaps I need to re-read your tutorial. What else is there? Of course if the answer is 2 pages long -then no worries.

    I would follow the root procedure in my signature to be safe.

    I say nope because without running the script included in the update.zip Moto provided you'll have your bootloader replacing your recovery image every time you reboot the phone. So, I have some in-phone instructions to fix it in recovery so your bootloader behaves, using Astro file manager, ROM Manager, and the update.zip Moto made.
