Go to peteralfonso.com and you can download the master froyo update. You just flash that like any rom and it will take you back to stock (either frg22d or frg01b.) I can't remember which. You should be able to then update from there. I haven't done it but there are several threads about it.

If I remember correctly I was told about it in the ss 4.9 thread. If you check my posts in that thread you should find it.

Hope this helps.

Your other option would be to flash an sbf. Just search around here in the rescue squad section and you'll find a solution.

Here you go:

+1 This is exactly what you need. In order for you not to be "found out" you will need to replace everything back to bone stock. Your ROM, recovery, everything. The only to successfully do that so that there is no "trace" of rooting is to flash an sbf.

If you were to just flash an un-rooted ROM it would un-root you, but you could potentially still have a custom recovery (bam, they know you've been toying about in superuser-space!). It's the safest way to keep yourself from getting stuck with a $600 bill.

It's not just "an unrooted rom"... it does take you back to a stock recovery and erase the custom one... I've spoken with someone who did it...

It's the master ota Verizon sent out that unrooted people and took them back to stock everything. Just try flashing it, reboot into recovery and see what's there. If I'm wrong, you've only wasted 10 min of your time, but if I'm right it'll save you much more.

It's all good, it almost sounded too easy when I first heard about it as well. Now I keep that file on the root of my sd card just in case. I'll try to post a direct link later today.

Search DroidForums for this:

Unroot/back to stock (2.2) without sbf or rsd lite

It will give you a more specific method and it's for frg22d instead of frg01b on Pete's site.
