    Is there anyway to easily remove the bootstrap? I seem to have jumped the gun without reading that the bootstrap causes you to not be able to upgrade to 2.2.

    Anyway, I know you can flash the .SBF to the phone (by the way, I have no idea what that .SBF file is.), but I'm looking for a way that you can just remove it without losing all of my applications and such.

    So is there any easy way to do this? Also, if there is, I'd like to edit my post and put it in here as a tutorial so they can possibly sticky this thread in case anyone gets into a situation such as mine.

    EDIT:


    Here are the instructions according to the following posters:




    I hope this helps anyone that was in the same boat as meself.

    UNINSTALL the Recovery APK (Droid X Bootstrapper) in Settings, Applications
    Reboot
    Run "adb shell"
    Run "su"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Run "cp /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper"
    Reboot

    You can also use root explorer and
    delete the hijack file
    delete logwrapper file
    rename the logwrapper.bin to logwrapper
    (this also assumes you uninstalled the bootstrap app from your phone first)

    I did it via root explorer no problem.

    You are probably OK, I read somewhere to delete Hijack and have read other places that omit it. If you aren't having issues, then don't worry :)

    I'm glad you guys are responding helpfully. :) I ran the ADB, and it worked perfectly.

    Thanks for the help!

    So what are you results with FroYo, if you have it that is?

    For the most part, I like it. Unfortunately, my battery manager FC everytime I open it. Kind of frustrating.

    Koush released a new bootstrap for 2.2 since some people were having problems with the first release. Version number is 1.0.0.3 instead of 1.0.0.1 on the old one.

    Get it here:

    I have a question, will I need to uninstall Bootstrap before I install any official Verizon/Motorola OTA upgrades?

    Root Explorer is so good it's almost essential. Bite the bullet and buy it. You'll be glad you did.

    Just use any terminal app, go into su, remount the drive as rw and issue commandline commands. It's free. You just have to learn.

    Was there an answer to this question? Thanks. I have Rooted 2.1 - debating between OTA and trying my hand at flashing a ROM (though I am not super tech savvy).

    Hey guys,

    Could anyone confirm if this method still works to remove the bootstrap on 2.2 OTA?

    I'd like to install some themes, but at the same time, would like to get back to stock as much as possible, just in case.

    Any word on if anyone was able to pull the full 2.2 OTA update.zip/sbf?
