    My Droid has some touchscreen problems and I just received a replacement. I have to ship the broken phone back to Verizon. I currently am running Cyanogenmod and a bekit kernel. Do I need to flash this back to stock before returning it? It's pretty easy to flash back to 2.0.1 unrooted using ROM Manager, but do I need to flash the original recovery utility? I have Clockwork recovery flashed to it right now. Is there a quick way to restore the original? do I even need to?

    I think the file in rom manager gives you stock recovery

    yes. within rom manager you can easily flash back to a stock rom.

    Thanks. What about the kernel? I don't see a stock kernel in ROM Manager. Does flashing back to an unrooted stock ROM in ROM Manager also do the kernel?

    Hmm...the installation of the stock ROM using ROM Manager failed. :( It wiped my phone, so I'm having to start all over with configuring it, but it still has the Cyanogenmod flash. I wonder if I need to do something different to revert back to stock.
