    Can't you just flash the original ROM from your phone? Sorry i'm not very tech savvy.

    Rsd is the last thing you do if your phone is bricked. You are using an sbf file, the phones original os. Rsd is used when you cannot access the recovery on your phone. You load into the boot loader by pressing power+camera+volume.

    When you flash a rom, you erase the original. Factory reset only erases data cache, it does not restore original software like a PC recovery does. If you want it back to stock, you must use an sbf file to flash because it overwrites the entire package, recovery and ROM. Its the only way I know how to restore the original recovery as well, I haven't seen anything out there to flash a stock recovery on anything.
    Of course this was before my D2G, this recovery can't get written over as far as I know, and the custom recoveries are just loaded with script within the ROM boot.
