    Hello, this is my first time starting a thread or even posting anything on a forum so bare with me. I have a motorla droid on 2.1, and I have tried almost every possible route to get my phone back to 2.0.1 but something always comes up. It has gotten so bad that I'm ready to sell my droid, because I really really want htc sense on my phone. I have tried to use the rsd lite method but for some reason my computer can find the program to open it with, any suggestions???? Next, I was wondering if there was anybody on this forum that was from Missouri so that I can get some local
    help?? Please can someone help me?!!!

    You have to tell us what you have done.
    My thought would be to DL ROM Manager and within is the 2.0.1 OS (stock unrooted) and the 2.1 (rooted) OS. DL one, it will prompt you to backup and/or wipe. Just wipe, it will install and I believe you can ignore the OTA update.
    Done

    edit - you do not need the premium version of ROM Manager to get stock images - I just checked.

    If you want the sense UI then get an HTC incredible. The sense ui for Droid does not work very well and hasn't been update in weeks.

    You don't need to go to 2.01either. Just put sprecovery on your phone and you can load a rooted rom.

    Not sure if he meant the non rooted stock ROM.
    Maybe I am mistaken.

    Like I said, he needs to tell us more about what he already did.

    He is on 2.1 stock. You need to get the RSD Lite application for your pc, if your getting a error about not having anything to open the file then you probably need to download 7zip (free, do a google search) and use it to extract the RSD Lite exe, once you have it running you can continue following the guide. The thing is if you doing all this for Sense you will be disappointed because it doesn't run all that well and requires some extra steps to install compared to installing a normal ROM. Also you can't make phone calls while 3G is on so you need to turn data off and on constantly. If you want Sense then just get the HTC Incredible, you just got your Droid right? Then you can return/exchange it for the Incredible.
