    I am running the OA ROM by Spz0 with CWM 5.0.28. How to I get back to stock so I can go to 2.3.6. I need some detailed instructions if someone would be so kind.

    OA is on 2.3.6...

    Also in my opinion it is faster and includes Req0's kernel. Not to mention PowerMenu Mod.

    But iF you really want to got to Official Stock 2.3.6, you don't need to be on stock. Just run the Program that you download from the Samsung website. Then its as simple as following directions.

    new theory of mine: its basically what this thread here says but instead of using the generic update you would use the official update.
    http://androidforums.com/admire-all-things-root/506519-remove-annoying-yellow-triangle-boot.html

    1. use odin to go back to stock which will cause you to lose data
    2. install CWM
    3. do a nandroid
    4. install the official 2.3.6 update from Samsung (NOT the generic one found in here:http://androidforums.com/admire-all-things-root/454073-regarding-2-3-6-update-metropcs-solved.html)
    5. install CWM
    6. restore your nandroid., making sure to wipe dalvick and cache

    not only would this get rid of the annoying triangle but after installing the official update it will make your OS become official instead of the custom odin OS. when you are done and if you still dont have have your data back, you can go into the thread above titled regarding the 2.3.6 update... and do the data fixing part. it is how I restored my data (I SKIPPED STEPS 13 TO 16) after using the stock odin tar file and a whole bunch of other stuff (my thread explain what i did http://androidforums.com/admire-all-things-root/598847-lost-my-3g-1x-help.html) . and after you get the data you can even go back and undo all the changes done to fix data and you will still have your data. this last part is optional though

    I MYSELF HAVE YET TO TRY THIS AS I HAVE NO NEED TO, IF ANYONE CARES TO DO TRY THIS AND SHARE THERE RESULTS IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. DO AT YOUR OWN RISK AND CREDIT GOES TO EXILE1975 FOR FIRST DISCOVERING THIS NEAT LITTLE TRICK
