    Your phone is fine as long as it turns on, someone will be along to help you get it booted up... You might want to read through the stickied threads at the top of this forum while you wait, it may lead you in the right direction.

    I'm sending phone in for a replacement, can you unroot? I don't care if the phone works, i just wanted to get rid of any sign that it was rooted, i was having some minor problems before this happened, now i just want it replaced. I don't know how but my guess is if you rooted it you should be able to unroot.

    Thanks

    If i send it in (i think i heared somewhere not sure where) and if you save all contents of the SD card to your computer, then reformat the card so there are no traces of any rooted files.
    2 days ago i did make a copy of the sd card to my hard drive but i don't know how to do that unless it means booting into recovery mode and selecting "wipe all data...etc"
    So can you tell me how to reformat the card so there are no traces of any rooted files?

    Thanks

    OK but the replacement phone does not come with an sd card, you don't send that back with phone.
    When you send your phone in you have to keep the battery, the back cover, and the sd card
    But dies the phone it self have any files that would suggest it's been rooted?
    Doing the whole sbf'ing thing is something i want to avoid

    I went into recovery mode to wipe data, did you "wipe data/factory reset", and "wipe cache partition

    when you root the phone and i have the sd card (you don't send the card) there would be no sign or files to suggest it is a rooted phone?
    Because i will get the replacement phone today it buys me 5 days, so if it is the best way is sbf'ing i can try it without worring and rushing thru it

    When i get the phone and insert the sd card it still has the files that got me rooted plus i have a backup of of the sd card on my hard drive
    can't i use those files, when i rooted the phone the only reason i needed to use the computer is to transfer the files to the to the sd card via usb.
    So when i get the phone and all the files are on the sd card i can root like i did the first time, right?

    thanks

    there is no avoiding doing an SBF if you are sending in a phone for replacement. It has to be done unless you want to pay full price for your replacement phone. And SBF doesn't affect your SDCard, it is essentially a complete wipe of your phone to a brand new, out-of-the-box state.

    I just got the new phone avtivation went ok but now it 's doing the same thing "stuck on M logo" the battery is very warm .

    I can't even boot into recovery mode

    Why is this happining is it because of the files still on the sd card
    Now im i getting a panic attackk


    When i first got the phone it booted ok Dialed *288 to activate it's still froyo out of the box then when i started to configure the settings it froze also the battery was getting very hot.
    And no on the power and home it stays on the M logo

    What am i going to do, do you think it mite be something with the sd card?


    Well the new phone is broke the home button is not working no click so now i have to send in the new one
    i'll try a sbf, if you could discribe the steps and what should i see, if im doing it right so i don;t have to keep posting to you after each time to make sure i don;t screw something up


    So far i have gone thru 7 Droid x's in 2+ months i wonder if there any other options Verizon can do for me, after 7 phones do you think Verizon owes me something other than send another replacement phone?

    So now i guess i'll have to try a sbf on the phone i was sending back
    Im hoping i can get someone so explain how to do this, there's so much info in forums like this my disability really kicks in and causes me to shut down so nothing gets done.

    To start with i have the "1KDStaz0.9.iso"

    When you burn the iso file there's a folder called boot which contain various files, is that correct? i use Toast so i drag and drop the iso into toast mount it and burn?

    I need help

    sounds like its possible that your SDcard is actually shot...it has nothing to do with the files on your card...

    your phone will operate just fine without a card and doesn't use anything on the card to operate....try booting the phone without the card in and see if that works...

    Yeah... the files have nothing to do with it... but if the card is causing a short circuit or something in the phone then it would definitely start getting hot.

    With the replacement phone have you rooted it or anything or just gone through the activation only?
