Skip these, use this process instead Disclaimer: I hardly know the ins and outs of this. This is just putting together all the info I’ve gathered from the web and from the mistakes I made doing this. That also means there might be a much easier or more efficient way to do this. Easy procedures are out there for other phones, but I don’t know how to prepare the materials to do that for the Vortex. OVERVIEW: This assumes the phone is rooted with a custom ROM and recovery. -Flash stock ROM -Flash stock recovery -Remove Superuser app -Remove root access REQUIRED FILES -Stock 2.2.2 ROM provided by Geofferey. unzip the files into a folder without spaces in the name. Place folder in /sdcard/nandroid/mem=447M/ (not sure if folder name is variable, use what you have there. If the directory doesn't exist, perform a nandroid backup and it will be created) -Stock recovery provided by getitnowmarketing. unzip and place in root directory of sdcard -flash_image provided by drellisdee. unzip and place in root directory of sdcard) -Gingerbreak 1.2 -A file manager from Market to install Gingerbreak -Terminal Emulator from Market or adb Step 1 Flash stock ROM -Enter custom recovery mode. Typical way is to hold HOME+VOL_DOWN+POWER when the phone is off. -Go to backup/restore, and create a nand backup of what you have now if you like -Use nand restore, select the folder of the stock ROM you placed there earlier -Go back to main menu > wipe, and wipe 3 things: Data/factory reset, cache, Dalvik cache -reboot from main menu Step 2 Flash stock recovery Install Gingerbreak, enable USB Debugging (Settings > Applications > Development), and root the phone. Then enter these commands from the prompt. You can use adb for the commands in this section, but I can’t so I used the Terminal Emulator app. Step 3 Remove Superuser app As before, use adb or the Terminal Emulator to enter the following commands: Next, perform a factory reset (enter recovery as before or Settings>Privacy>Factory reset) Step 4Removing root access* Install and use Gingerbreak 1.2 to unroot. Don't forget to enable USB Debugging. After the phone restarts, uninstall any apps that were added for the process. Edit: *Step 4 might not be necessary. I thought I had to do it once before, but going through it now, it was not required.
