    Stupid question but I just put the stock rom back on and unrooted using gingerbreak, but I dont think ive removed the recovery? How can I hard boot into recovery to check? I cant remeber what buttons, lol

    Edit- I remembered, it was hold home, power, and volume down.

    Now I just got to remove cwm, anyone have any suggestions?

    Yup, 2.2.1. Can i use the flash image gui app to just flash the stock recovery img over the cwm recovery? if i can, then i could just use gingerbreak to unroot. That just seems too easy.

    edit... From being stock rooted, i used flash image gui and flashed the stock recovery img, after reboot i used gingerbreak to unroot. So now i believe i'm 100% stock. I just used hard boot into recovery and since i've never seen the stock recovery before i just want to make sure this is it.
    It says..
    Android system recovery <3e>

    Android system recovery utility

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    How can you find out what OS you had before you flashed? I lost my original nandroid backup so I can't restore and look.
