Awesome! No problem at all, glad you are back up and running.
can i use this as kinda like a backup?
Define what you mean as "a backup" in this context, because there is nothing in this guide that will back up your phone's current status.
Nice! I missed the Froyo update by a couple weeks because I had to leave the country. So this is awesome to have a copy of stock Froyo before I start messing with the Froyo custom ROMs. I was doing okay with the rooting Eclair for a little while, but when I couldn't find any kernels for it, decided to just start over with 2.2.
TinGodz, not to go too much off topic, but P3Droid's Eclair kernels are still available here:
And for the record, there's no real benefit to having stock FroYo if you want to mess with ROMs. As long as you're wiping between flashes you can move between any Android build without a worry. The D1 isn't the same as the X or 2 when it comes to the bootloader and updated signing keys.
Thanks for the information Fur.
I actually tried P3Droid's site earlier, but the Eclair kernels are no longer available. I get a 404 error on every one.
The main reason I want stock Froyo is because I'm not too big on the custom ROMs yet considering they add so many options to the phone. I really don't know what each ROM offers differently from the stock version. So it'd be nice to familiarize myself with Froyo to truly understand the upgrades/tweaks each custom ROM brings to the table.
Yeah, I see that. That's weird. The last time I tried them they worked.
As for custom ROMs all I'm going to say about what's changed is "a lot". Once you start flashing you'll be telling yourself "why did I wait THIS long?".
Haha, I'm sure I will. I can already notice some features I miss from Cyanogen.
Just curious: what ROM are you using?
CyanogenMod 6.1 build 202, which is just shy of 6.1 RC 5.
But this is all off-topic. If you want to join the discussion then I suggest this thread.
Is factory reset enough?
My screen stopped working. Called Verizon and they had me do a factory reset. I haven't done anything else. Didn't do the wipe cache partition step. I am sending the phone back for a rebuilt (sure worried about their reliability from what I read). Will there be any evidence of rooting left on the phone after the factory reset?
Yes, unless you either SBF or follow this guide.
I was able to do the wipe cache partition, so I've done the wiping part indicated in the procedure. I had used nandroid to go back to stock before the phone failed. I am not sure what else the procedure asks me to do.
