    I was messing around with ROM's one day and saw one that said, "Flash to 1.47 without having to reroot" or something along those lines. I tried it and it worked perfectly. Today I tried to undo the root and flash back to stock using the "[How To] [FIXED!!] Unroot and return to stock" post on Android Central forums.
    [How To] Unroot and return to stock. - Android Central Forums

    However, halfway through the update, it fails. I want to return back to stock so I can flash the new Froyo update that is out. I don't know what I did.

    I even tried to update directly to Froyo. No go.
    I did a NAND restore to my 1.32 build. Still gives me an error.

    Is there a way to go back to the Stock bootloader and stock recovery? Maybe that might help?

    If there is any other information I can give please let me know.

    I can't help you with the going back to stock issue, but if you are fully rooted, you can just flash to one of the rooted 2.2 ROMs floating around.

    I flashed to one of the rooted 2.2 ROMs.

    Now out of curiosity, what would I need to do to go back to a stock 1.32 or 1.47 ROM?

    The reason why I am asking is because of repair/insurance purposes.

    The Unroot method in my first post didn't work for me when i was using a rooted 1.47 - 2.1 ROM. Will it work now that I'm flashed to a rooted 2.2?

    There have been lots of replacements, I highly doubt they turn down a replacement on screen issues based on your phone being rooted. "Sorry sir, apparently the nand unlock also loosened this here section of glue." Don't worry, be happy :)

    I think those RUU's fail if your current version is high than the ruu version, BUT I could very well be wrong.

    Try flashing to the PC36IMG.zip rom.
    Then follow the tutorial you were using to run the RUU update.

    You are almost there.

    Backup your stuff with something like titanium backup, and skip the official. Go from where you are to a rooted 2.2 stock rom.

    Waiting is up to you. You can do the one I linked, and re-do it when the official comes out (assuming it proved itself different), or you can wait.

    The one I linked is working well for me.
