    Is this a bad thing? First time I've ever played with root and I guess I should have read up abit more about it :D

    Any suggestions?

    Details = Followed instructions from a Youtube video, and got a CyanogenMod. Pretty cool and all, but wanted to try another. Used the same method described in the youtube video to get this Fresh rom i keep hearing good reports about. Liked it, but now wanted to do a factory reset, and it goes back to the previous, CyanogenMod.

    Thanks

    Are you doing the factory reset from the recovery screen? You should wipe the factory/data, the davlik cache and sd:ext (from the recovery screen) each time you flash a new ROM unless the developer tells you otherwise.

    Yes I tried that a few times, and it still comes up with the previous Rom. I didnt know all that.. Any way you know of that i can get the initial previously installed Android 2.1 back on the device like its brand new?

    Are you flashing a NEW ROM after wiping everything?

    If you really wanted to get back to stock (unrooted and all) you could run the RUU.

    That's exactly whats happening, kinda like I overwrote my nandroid backup files with that rom.

    I do want to get back to stock, ill find the correct RUU and see what happens from there.
