    First everyone say congrats to my "partner in crime/helping people" on here
    Android Forums - View Profile: mrpnut on a healthy baby boy:D

    YOU KNOW THE ROUTINE-I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS AS A RESULTS OF ATTEMPTING THIS GUIDE.

    IT WOULD NOT BE POSTED HERE IF IT DID NOT WORK

    So after rooting your phone you failed to make a backup right after rooting and after flashing a few ROMS/Kernels/Themes you just want a fresh start of ZVD. Until we have a stable ZVD ROM here are your options.
    The hard way:
    1.
    http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/479734-guide-downgrade-ms910zvc-ms910zvb.html
    then
    2. http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/512317-guide-x2-update-zvd-root-zvd.html

    The easy way:
    This is a way to get back to stock/bloated ZVD using the advanced restore option in CWM.
    This backup was created by factory resetting my phone, setting up a dummy Gmail account to install quick boot from the market(Google play store).

    As said by some guy who dabbles in Theme & ROMS ;)
    Patience and the willingness to read,follow instruction, and learn is really all that is need to advance from n00b status. Remember the search option in this great forum. More often then not someone has already asked the question and has gotten an answer:D
    Lets try and make Shiny's guide job easier y'all:cool:

    I was having the same issue! I downloaded this MULTIPLE times via phone pc etc... WAY before this was released. Everytime I tried to find it, it was nowhere to be found. Only way I could find it was to move the files to cwm backup folder. After I do that I try to restore and I get md5 mismatch error. I'm not sure this works?

    The first time I THOUGHT I got it to work I was just installing an old backup. Are your other testers confirming the deletion of the dummy gmail account?
