    I'm assuming by doing this you lose everything? i.e installed apps?

    I did a factory reset via the recovery and I did NOT loose root. Superuser.apk and permissions stayed.

    Just tossing that out there. Wondering if maybe it was a fluke...

    Thank you for the guide and for hosting the files instead of us having to rely on crappy file hosting services. :)

    Just FYI - your SDCARD seems to require FAT32 formatting for this to work. Mine was FAT and it kept acting like the file wasn't there until I formatted the card within the phone OS (which is fat32)

    Thanks for the instructions, this may come in very handy!

    I am having a problem though. It seems that the .zip file you provided is corrupt. I have downloaded it numerous times (and on multiple computers), and I cannot open it. I just get a message saying that the .zip file is invalid or corrupted.

    Your not supposed to open the file. Just save to root of SD card.

    Sheesh. Finally did a long format of the card again using a PC to FAT32 and 1024 cluster. That worked. Thanks. I'm sending the phone back. It over heats and goes into a reboot cycle. Does it even if not rooted. Reactivated my WM phone and I'll wait for the Droid X.

    Good stuff man, thanks a lot! Have to send my phone back to the insurance company after getting wet, was able to get it on running long enough to unroot and clean it up so they don't give me a problem!

    When I rooted my phone, I deleted some useless apps such as FriendstreaM and City ID. If I do this process, will it load those programs back onto my phone. If it won't how do I do that?

    Does this also remove the Unrevoked tool if it was installed?
