    In case someone has to return their phone to be replaced under warranty or other reasons?

    I'm also wondering about this. The install script put the original recovery in the root of the sdcard as dump_recovery.IMG or something like that. I imagine its just a matter of flashing that IMG file, but I haven't had time to tinker with it yet....

    grab the stock recovery.img (you'll probably have to find it) for your phone. Flash it the same way you'd flash a custom one, should suffice.

    Yep. I modified the script to use the stock IMG and it worked like a charm. Thanks!
