    Well I should get a new one in approximately 9 or 10 hours. Question is, what do I do with my old one? Its rooted, and I deleted apps like City ID, Blockbuster, and some widgets. Should I restore this stuff? And if so, how? If I don't, will Verizon or Motorola give me trouble with it?

    I would do a system restore.

    If a phone is returned as defective under warranty, would it being rooted or otherwise 'modified' potentially void the warranty coverage?

    Does that bring it all back? I tried the factory wipe, it didn't reappear.

    @Old Man: I'm not sure, but I'd rather not take a chance. They could consider it tampering with the phone.

    Reset it and be done with it.

    I gave the factory wipe a shot, none of that stuff came back though. Now what?

    Do the following, in order:

    1: Format sd card
    2: Flash using sbf file
    3: factory reset

    After that, your X will be like it was out of the box.

    Just a tip: You shouldn't have to factory reset after flashing the SBF. It should already be completely back to stock after doing so.

    Bah, Verizon sent me a refurb. Dammit, I was promised a brand new one. I'm sending this one back...

    Thanks for the tip though Paycer.

    EDIT: Screw you Verizon. Not only did you send me a refurb, but the speaker buzzes like hell too :(

    According to motorola reps, there are NO refurb phones at all yet. Any replacement phones are new.

    Unless of course, Verizon is playing shennanigans.

    Moto reps are ignorant. Sorry but true. Their 'experts' told me to hard reset the phone so the LED would come on when charging.
