I did a factory reset via the recovery and I did NOT loose root. Superuser.apk and permissions stayed.

Just tossing that out there. Wondering if maybe it was a fluke...

Just FYI - your SDCARD seems to require FAT32 formatting for this to work. Mine was FAT and it kept acting like the file wasn't there until I formatted the card within the phone OS (which is fat32)

Thanks for the instructions, this may come in very handy!

I am having a problem though. It seems that the .zip file you provided is corrupt. I have downloaded it numerous times (and on multiple computers), and I cannot open it. I just get a message saying that the .zip file is invalid or corrupted.

Sheesh. Finally did a long format of the card again using a PC to FAT32 and 1024 cluster. That worked. Thanks. I'm sending the phone back. It over heats and goes into a reboot cycle. Does it even if not rooted. Reactivated my WM phone and I'll wait for the Droid X.

When I rooted my phone, I deleted some useless apps such as FriendstreaM and City ID. If I do this process, will it load those programs back onto my phone. If it won't how do I do that?

volume button down to "recover" then hit power, that will bring you to the clockwork.


side note. trying this.... not finding the zip on the sd card.. gonna try a format.


it also seems to be looking for an image with a diffrent name.

thanks for this! I unrooted with this method. Once it rebooted, I told it to connect me to wifi only, and I bypassed google account setup, etc for now because I was just going to move the OTA file to the SDcard and install it.

Well, as soon as the phone was fully booted up, I got prompted for the OTA! Installing now.

Great job!

I had the same issue with the file not being found. Formatted the SD card to FAT32, tried again and it worked. Don't know if this is something you want to add to the tutorial or not.

OK is that the trick...when I put the downgrade file on my sd card and get in the correct screen on the reboot nothing autoruns like it shows in the vid....

So format my card to fat32 and place the file back on it?


Sidebar question: when you have a rooted device do you have to keep the update.zip in the root of the sdcard can it be deleted and not affect root...

Love the vid. I like being able to see what I'm getting into before I dive in.

Can you post the MD5 hash for this file please?

Default problems...

I used the revoked3 to root the phone - and now I used the video - and atttempted to launch the unroot app - but was required to use the clockworkmod recovery app - or so it seems to do this -

I'm super non-technical - and probably shouldn't have done this - but the biggest reason I'm doing this is because of major battery issues after rooting... but regardless, I'm struggling on how to unroot.

So format my card to fat32 and place the file back on it?


Sidebar question: when you have a rooted device do you have to keep the update.zip in the root of the sdcard can it be deleted and not affect root...
For your first question, I plugged the phone into the PC, set the phone to disk mode, copied all the files from the SD Card to my desktop, then formatted 'the long way' my SD Card to FAT32, then copied all the files on the desktop back to the card.

You must have missed a step in the process, you do not use clockwork at all. When you reboot the phone for the first time and go into the hboot, after about 5 seconds it will start trying to auto-load the unroot file. If it doesn't run it, then you may have to try reformatting the SD card to FAT32. That is what got mine to finally take.

Yep. This video will make your phone look like the day you took the seal off of the box. Using a non-root-required backup app might be a good idea (obviously, don't use Titanium).

Ok - I got myself into a world of mess... I HAVE A TOTAL WHITE SCREEN... I rooted using unrevoked3, installed froyo - no problems, then attempted to install the market app through a .zip file that I loaded on the SD card loaded it, and now I get a white screen...

I have tried to do some of the things that I know - restart using the down volume and I get the hboot screen and I have tried all of the options in there... but eventually, rebooting, ultimately brings me back to a white screen.

I'm very very non-technical and have no idea what to do with it next.

Help!

This is the unroot thread but you don't seem to be talking about unrooting. Ironically, the solution to your problem is in this thread. Ready, go!

You are absolutely right... before adding froyo - I was trying to unroot... and it was aborting the app I installed from the "unroot video"... and somehow, I came upon the app to install froyo - did so, etc...

... and of course, wanting all the cool stuff, I was doing stuff... and now I just want to get back to my happy go lucky life of having an android...and a phone that is needed for work.

REady, go!

Help Please!
