    Okay so I am fairly new to the Android scene, but was able to root my hero. I saved the flash thingy to my sd card. 2 days ago I dropped my hero in water........full on submerged. fast forward 2 days after leaving in rice, the sun, taking it apart (thanx to the DIY thread) it works again. I was even able to fix my trackball issue!!!

    But I have been wanting to go back to the original so I can do the XDA 2.1 ROM. MY sdcard was damamged somehow in all of the water issue and honestly I just dont know what I am doing now. :(

    If someone can point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it!!!

    Eww... sorry! Glad you got it working though!

    Do you have a replacement SD card? By chance do you have your nandroid backup saved to a computer?

    Sorry I can't offer a solution, but WOW you are HELLA lucky! I'll keep the rice trick in mind, I tend to drop mine a lot. It looks 2 years old already :(

    If it happens that you dunk your phone take the battery out as soon as you get it out of the liquid and then do the rice. I've dropped a few in water and saved them every time

    How about a replacement SD card? You'll need an SD card to flash to another ROM.

    IMO, flash back to stock and reroot (if desired).

    Well, if you don't have your backup I think I saw a clean backup floating around the forums yesterday. That would save you from having to flash the RUU and going back to 100% stock (and from needing to reroot.

    If you can't find your nandroid backup... try doing a factory reset (you shouldn't lose your root, but will lose contacts, apps, etc). Make a nandroid and save it to your computer.... flash the new ROM.

    Third option is safest IMO. Flash the RUU and start from scratch.
