    OK I got myself outta droidmod. Yay me... but my nandroid back up has me in root... how can I get back to bone dry stock? Would a factory reset do the trick? Root isn't a rom, so I would assume a hard reset would work...or would I have to flash the stock rom in rom manager? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for that awesome link to that breakdown of unrooting! Saved that page! I just followed the steps I used for getting out of droidmod, using rom manager. Just to be ABSOLUTELY clear, you can't be rooted if you don't have the ninja right? Cause I don't anymore but I just wanna make sure, also I think I did the return to stock with the update.stock.zip file instead of updated.zip. is that possible? Just wanting to make sure I'm really stock is all. Thanks in advance again guys.

    No ninja no root. To double check open terminal emulator and type su and hit enter. If denied you are stock.

    I have latest Windows 7 64 bit drivers, RSD Lite 4.8, Bootloader 30.3. Trying to flash 2.3.15.sbf. Droid X is bricked. Can't do a system reset. I can get RSD to see the Droid X but when I try and run the sbf file, I get the following error:
    "Failed flashing process. Unable to retrieve interface handle. (0x7027); Phone disconnected"

    Any help would be appreciated. My phone is practically new and I hate to get a refurbished replacement. Brick happened when trying to do the OTA update to 2.3.340.
