    My camera on my Droid has stopped working and because it's within the 30 days of me activating the phone they offered to give me a Droid X instead with only paying the restocking fee. I am pretty sure I am going to take this deal, but the question I have is:

    When I revert to stock adroid and do the OTA update to 2.1 do I also need to downgrade my baseband or does that do that automatically? Just curious because I'd really like to return the phone with no traces of the root.

    if you use the 2.0.1 sbf I think it changes your baseband, but it actually doesnt really matter since the 2.1 update does for sure flash a new baseband and they will set it to what it should be.

    Thanks OMJ, I think I saw in one of your other posts where you linked how to do the sbf file/method. I'm searching for it yet, but no luck.

    Just to verify, it DOES downgrade your baseband. I just reverted to stock 2.0.1 and did the OTA to 2.1 and my baseband is the original one. Nice going on getting a free X lol! Gratz. I'd take one...maybe.

    WHY ON EARTH would YOU have to pay a restocking fee for a warranty replacement of a phone within 30 days of purchase?! You're actually going to give them money to replace something that they HAVE to replace anyway?? Just curious.
