    I know I procrastinated, but I installed the leaked 2.2 months back, and never reverted back to stock, to get the OTA 2.2 Verizon sent out. Is it too late? If I revert back to stock, will I still be able to download the official OTA 2.2? Is there any difference over the one I have? Thanks in advance!

  2. - open a terminal app

    - you should see a $ symbol, do the following (type each line exactly as written after the "-" but do not type what is in the parenthesis)

    - su (give a minute to ask for Superuser Permission. If it doesn't ask, go into Superuser Permissions and grant access to your Terminal Emulator and go back and retry this step)

    - now you should see a # symbol (after each of the following steps is processed, you will see a #)

    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    - rm /system/app/Superuser.apk

    - rm /system/bin/su

    - rm /system/bin/busybox

    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    - reboot

    When I installed the leaked 2.2, it unrooted my phone. Do I need to root first?

    I have no idea how to do that? Is it worth the effort, is there any difference between the Leaked 2.2 and Official OTA 2.2?

    Letting people know that ATK's are bad
    its worth it. i also had leaked 2.2, and downgraded to 2.1, and took 2.2 OTA update.


    1) if ure on leaked 2.2, download 2.1 SBF from rootzwiki
    2) SBF back to 2.1
    3) you should have clean stock 2.1 now. go to system update and perform OTA 2.2 update
    4) if phone goes into endless reboot cycle, go into recovery mode and delete cache/data.

    required software to sbf
    - SBF file
    - RSD Lite 4.8 or 4.9
    - Motorola drivers (droid x moto driver, should come with the phone i believe, otherwise, google and download)

    you need to go to bootloader recovery mode. do it by holding camera button, vol -, and power button at same time.

    It will be wiped clean if you do a Factory Data Reset, but your contacts and paid apps are attached to your Google account, so you can easily get those back. Your other apps will need to be downloaded again. You will lose your app data and settings unless you back them up first with something like Titanium Backup, but you need root for TB.

    Do I HAVE to do a factory data reset to flash back to 2.1?

    Ok, so I need to go through and save all my apps on my SDcard. I guess I also need to make sure all my pics, videos, and audio files are on the SDcard as well, so they wont be deleted. This blows.

    your media is on SD card. The best way to back up all your apps is Titanium Backup, just search in market. It will back up all apps with data, such as your angry birds game score ;)
