    I have rooted and then updated to stock HTC (unbranded) froyo so I have HBOOT-0.92.0001. My phone keeps rebooting under load and it seems to be a hardware problem so I need to return it.

    Is there any easy way to return to the carriers official firmware so they don't refuse a warranty return?

    Thanks in advance

    That's fantastic. Could I run into any difficulties with this thing rebooting? It seems to happen under any sort of load. I think it's an overheating issue.

    Thanks a lot. Let's just hope it doesn't reboot mid-flash!

    Don't flash the Vodafone RUU if you have an SLCD screen. If you do have one, there's nothing you can do until/unless a froyo Vodafone RUU is leaked. If you have an AMOLED screen you're ok.
