    Im not sure if this post belongs here but im new to the roming thing and running liberty 2.0.1 with the toolbox. My keyboard is messed up so to want to send it back. What do I need to do on my phone so Verizon doesn't know its rooted. I've been hearing different stuff and not sure what the whole sbf thing is. Some people said I need that to go to stock and others said I need a nandroid thing but I have no idea what I'm doing. I was told if I try to reset my phone to factory setting while rooted ill brick my phone. Any help would be appropriated. Thanks

    Go to the stickies and there you will find the link for the sbf, rsd and motto drivers. Its very simple you just download and install the drivers, then download and install rsd lite then down load the sbf n set out in your desk top. Then open rsd lite press the (....) Button and select the sbf from your desk top. Now grab your phone, press and hold power, vol down and camera at the same time until a black screen comes up that says boot loader, then connect your device to your pc using your usb cable and rsd lite should read your device once your device is shown on rsd lite press start and let it do its thing. It takes about 10 min then when its done wipe cache and do a factory reset from recovery and your good to go like new

    Thanks. Ill look into those and give it a go. Since I've never done anything without the toolbox, if I happen to mess up I can just load an old backup in recovery right?

    No if you load the wrong sbf your phone will be bricked until you use the correct one, but there are about 2 different sbfs for your phone so if one doesn't work the other will, other than that no reason to brick
