    Idk if you can remove su and keep recovery. To get the stock rom you can find it in I think metikmod has one in his section. You can also go to droidmod.org and get dmupdater. It has stock 2.2 with and without root
    Hope this helps some

    Do you mean the superuser APK or the su script?? HUGE difference. Both in method of removal and security/stability risks. You DO NOT want root/superuser permissions without superuser.apk! It can leave your phone vulnerable to a very real security exploit. There's a reason why superuser.apk is included in EVERY root process.

    Likewise removing su can cause severe and unrecoverable instabilities in your phone.

    you know you will still be rooted if you have recovery right? if you made a backup you can just restore the stock backup and then you will have stock backup with the recovery. and also, there is a recovery on the stock droid, it just doesnt do much.

    To unroot properly, follow the link in hookbill's post. Sbf is the best way to go back to 100% stock. You will lose root, recovery, etc if you flash s full stock sbf.

    And fwiw a custom recovery without root/superuser permissions would be worthless. It wouldn't be able to write to any root (/) directories, e.g. /system, /data, etc.

    Can you boot into the bootloader? (Up arrow on keyboard + power)

    *You should send one of the rescue squad peeps a pm and/or make a thread in that section (link to this one in it so they have context to help) to speed up the time it might take to find a solution.
    EDIT: please share with us exactly what you were doing that eventually led to your phone becoming bricked. This will help diagnose the problem and potential solutions.
