    Based on advice I received in this thread: http://androidforums.com/droid-all-things-root/161354-blurry-camera-d1-w-lithium-bb-0-4-a.html

    it looks like I have to take my phone to Verizon for repair. I had to send my first droid in because the speaker phone wasn't working so they sent me a new one. Now I'm more worried than when I rooted because if they know I voided the warranty I don't exactly have $600 for a new phone. Cliff notes, my camera takes blurry pictures and it is apparently a known problem. I'm rooted and that's why I have some questions.

    1. Is there one video that is better than another with regards to unrooting?
    2. Once I'm unrooted will programs like rom manager, set cpu, titanium backup and any programs that require root be automatically deleted or do I have to manually delete them?
    3. Will there be any hints that I'm rooted by looking at my sd card or will all traces of being rooted be erased? Should I just remove the SD card before going into Verizon?

    Now that 2.2 is available I have some questions related to that
    4. Has 2.2 been rooted? I'm worried that even if I go in there w/ 2.1 that a technician may say, "let's update your phone to 2.2 and see if that solves then I'm stuck w/ 2.2 on my phone and wont' be able to root
    5. Any chance they will take my phone and replace it with something else?
    6. Will I get my droid back or will they give me another droid or replace it with something else if they don't have any D1 in stock.

    Now let's assume everything goes smoothly. How do I get back to where my phone is today? I can just follow the same steps as before to root again, but can I restore the rom and apps using rom manager and titanium backup that I will download from the market?

    There are threads on how to revert to stock and how to root 2.2 . Verizon will probably replace your phone with a refurb D1. I would just take out the sd card, but you can always manually check for and delete any files that don't belong. Once you delete RM and TitBu from your sd card all info in them will also be deleted.

    Actually I emailed the titanium dev and he suggested either just taking the sd card out of making a copy of my sd card and putting it on my computer :)

    #4 - yes, there is a thread around here for FRG22D Deodexed by P3 that is rooted
    #5 - sure, people have reported getting Droid 2 and Droid X here on the forums
    #6 - you don't think VZW is really going to "repair" your Droid and give it back to you, do you? :)

    you could, just FYI, make a ROM backup, take that off your SD card and put it on your computer. then when and IF you get a Droid D1 back you could reroot and put that ROM onto the SD card and flash it back with your recovery.

    either way, copy that SD card to your computer just because

    I would suggest calling the store first to see what they have as replacements. As stated earlier some people have gotten different phones. Some have gotten LG ally's Droid Eris and other phones that are not as good as the D1.

    Thanks. I called and the guy that answered said they could order a D1, but who knows if he really knows.

    I'm going to follow this video: YouTube - Returning Your Motorola DROID to Stock from CyanogenMod

    Will the wiping data and cache erase anything on my sd card? I guess it's OK if it did since I copied it to my desktop, but I'm just curious

    He says that this will delete everything. I know I'm being picky, but is there a way to return to root and not loose all apps, just the apps that require root?
