    Sonn I'm going to be selling my Droid on Craigslist, so I don't want to have CM6 on there anymore or have it rooted. How can I flash back to stock, and then remove Cyanogen? Do I need to find the update.zip for Froyo?

    There are stock rooted and un-rooted ROMs in ROM Manager, those will get you back to stock. Since you want to be un-rooted go with the un-rooted option and you should be golden. :)

    Alright I'll give it a shot. Will it still receive OTA updates after that though?

    Once you un-root you should receive the OTAs

    You may also want to consider www.swappa.com where rooted Droids with custom ROMs are fetching a pretty competitive price. A lot of people would like a rooted phone but are not confident enough to do it themselves... or (like me) are in the market for more Droids wherein the "dirty" work has already been done and it's ready to ROM. :)

    Also, I have heard time and time again that the unrooted roms in rom manager still leave a trace of root in the system, i.e. you will still have Superuser in the app drawer, but it will not function.
