    Hello all,

    I want to factory reset my motorola droid to the original factory settings, SD card and all. I'm still running rooted 2.0.1 and I want the new 2.3. I think I used Sholesmod to root... its hard to remember it was about a year ago. None of the factory pushed updates have ever worked. I get prompted to update and somewhere along the way it fails.

    I've searched, but came up relatively empty.

    Check out this post. It will get you back to factory 2.0.1 and Verizon should push all your updates to you after that. As for the SD, just mount it as storage on your computer and format it. They came blank.

    Awesome... I followed the tutorial on the All Things Root guide and that did it. It was pretty painless to do.

    I was still running 2.0.1 because I wanted to keep my wifi tether, but I couldn't deal with the constant crashes and freezes.

    Thanks again
