    Phone Highlights: S-Off. Stock Froyo. Rooted. ClockworkMod installed.
    ====================================================


    OK, it was my fault - I was stoopid.. I was having issues with Marketplace and then found that GTalk wasn't working and, well, one thing followed another and I blew away the GTalk APK. Stoopid I know, but it happens.

    So given that finding another copy of GTalk 1.3 is proving rather hard, I think option 2 is to restore the stock Rom.

    I have S-Off and Clockwork Mod and I rooted with 2.1.0 previously. I've got a recent Nanodroid backup (not recent enough to have the APK on it though - :eek:) and continuous Titanium Backups all nestled neatly on my SD.

    Now, bear in mind I've had several weeks of hell at work, my mind's not firing on all cylinders :( when it comes to me lil' Droid so you'll have to forgive me if this is a real silly question, but....

    What steps do I need to follow to return back to my stock 2.2 rooted goodness after I've used ClockworkMod to do an image recovery? Can I assume that the recovery will just put stock Froyo back on? If so, do I need to do a Nanodroid restore afterwards and are there any steps I need to follow to become re-rooted once complete?

    I should add that apart from a lack of Marketplace right now, the phone is otherwise perfectly happy and functional.

    Thanks for bearing with me!

    Thanks awfully! :)

    I'll drop it back on my phone a little later this AM and report back the results.

    Many thanks again! :D

    So I replaced the APK - still no dice with either it or MarketPlace. However, I did find this in a LogCat I ran directly afterwards...

    10-14 10:34:29.707 W/GTalkService(25815): blockingCreateGTalkConnection failed due to low storage!
    10-14 10:34:29.757 E/talk (26110): signInAccount: failed to get GTalk connection!


    Now, System Panel's reporting 116.6M free in Memory, 5270.5M available on the Internal Storage and 9172.2M left on the SD - so does anyone know just what low storage is it talking about?

    What's the deal with Marketplace? Won't load or other?

    Nothing's been downloading since Saturday. From everything I understand, Marketplace downloads use elements of Google Talk. If this is the case and my GTalk won't, well, talk then that might explain the lack of downloads.

    OK, knowing that the last time I had a marketplace issues it was because I'd just download an alpha version of Fennec that came in at over 13MB, I took action Sunday morning when I hit the marketplace issue to delete several apps and move moutains more to the SD Card.

    Apparently that wasn't enough however, because today I just dropped GEarth and, et voil

    You might try downloading Cache Mate (free). Next time it happens, run it a standard clear and see if it helps. I don't use the Power Clear option personally but it may have it's uses. You'll see what I'm talking about when/if you download it. Just a thought.

    I might just do that with my newly rediscovered powers of downloading :D

    Thanks!
