So after much turmoil trying to manually upgrade to 2.1, I finally got it. Looks great and I'm stoked for the OFFICIAL release, but this one is too buggy. Has my droid going super slow and freezing up every other screen :icon_ cry:
SO that brings me to my question I've looked and cant really find anything helpful about reverting to 2.0.1 and unrooting my less than a week old Droidy. Any step by steps avail? Z4pps tut was great.

Cool. Thats what I thought. So I'll just follow his tut again except put in my backed up copy, right?

Correct. Be sure and delete the 2.1 nandroid copy from the SD card, so that only the backup 2,0.1 copy is on there and it will go back to just like you had it before.

Had to do it to mine.

Do I needa replace 2.1 with 2.0.1 BEFORE I begin or just do it on step 20, like before?
PS. Thanx for the heeelp!

An old copy will more than likely still be rooted Since you cant have SPRecovery without being rooted, but if you start with the nandroid restore and follow one of the 2-3 guides here, you can get it back to stock pretty easily. Generally restore the image, use a terminal emulator to remove the Superuser.apk and then flash the 2.0.1 update.zip. I usually do a data/cache wipe in addition to this.

Hope that helps.

Starting on step 20, instead of using the 2.1 image file, use the backup file from steps 15-17

Yeah, I wouldn't suggest a person such as yourself follow that...just do this.

Mount your SD card to your computer
open your nandroid folder on the SD card and put the backup nandroid you should have made of 2.0.1 before installing 2.1,(step 15 from the sticky thread), then put that in the nandroid folder. then you reboot recovery and wipe cache and files, then navigate to the nandroid restore (newest) and wait for it to restore to the 2.0.1 nandroid.

And a terminal is a *nix command line for accessing files, working with files, ect ect.

I'm totally fukced, arent I?
JKJK This made sense to me actually. seems easy so I'll try it. The only part that kinda throws me is "then navigate to the nandroid restore (newest)". Thats the same as "Default Nandroid Restore (Latest)" in the tut, right?
Again, thanx for the help from both of ya's.lol

Yeah that is the same. I don't know why but in the tut the menus were different than what was actually on the nandroid menu.

But if you do this, like I said...it will put your phone in the exact state it was before you started to do all this. Meaning all your apps, texts, home screen layout will go back just like it was.
