    I'm looking for a pure stock v7 nandroid that I can flash in CWM because I'm thinking about returning my phone to verizon and I can't get the cab to work so I was just going to return to stock with CWM.

    I thought micromod777 had made one but I can't find it.

    Also Neph81, if you see this I need to know if the stock recovery.zip for V6 will work for returning me to stock recovery. Will just flashing a nandroid of V7 and flashing the v6 stock recovery work so I can return my phone. I've tried running the cab on my pc over and over and it refuses to work so I'm all out of ideas.

    You're mixing and matching parts. You'll have an unlocked boot loader on ICS with broken bluetooth. If you flash a v6 nandroid, you'll still have the ICS radio files and baseband. Your only way to get back to either pure ICS or GB at this point is the .cab or to find someone with all the DD images you'd need. It's the main reason that no one put out a stock v7 nandroid, because it really wouldn't return you to stock once you unlocked the boot loader.

    If I understand this correctly: If I flash the v6stock and recovery, take the OTA updates I will still have an unlocked boot loader and broken blue tooth?

    I keep a nandroid of I think it's the stripped down stock. It's my 'go to' when I want to get back to stock.

    I wouldn't think so...

    Once you flashed the stock v6 recovery and took the OTA. You'd have a locked bootloader... Otherwise, the locked bootloader would never have been an issue in the first place.

    Since the boot loader broke bluetooth, your bluetooth would work fine as well.

    Correct. The bootloader will re-lock itself once the OTA is applied.

    thanks again, it's nice to know there's a way out
    now if I can get setup to run cwm recovery via fastboot I'll have it all!
    but except for the bluetooth I am really loving the cm nightlys

    looks like we also have to flash the v6 baseband-VS920-ZV6.zip if the v7+ ota was already done
