    Need to return to stock recovery

    Hello, first time poster.

    My phone's USB port has been acting up lately, unable to keep a solid connection for more than a minute or so at a time. I'd like to return it, but I can't do so with ClockworkRecovery on there, or it will be obvious that I've been messing with it.

    I thought about SBFing it, but if I can't maintain a USB connection, then that won't really work, will it?

    I've read that if I unroot my phone, it will stop ClockworkRecovery from running at book, but all of the unroot threads I find are ages old, and I'm not sure if they're still accurate on my current firmware (2.3.34).

    Can someone help me? I'm still pretty new at all this, but good at following simple instructions.

    Unrooting won't remove clockwork, you can remove clockwork following this guide, unroot using z4. I'm not sure what has been done to your phone, you can use maderstcok - OTA 2.3.340 update.zip to go back to complete stock 2.3.340.

    For the first link you posted, are you referring to this section of text:

    How to boot into stock recovery

    Hold power button and and home hard key. When M screen appears, release home key. A screen with a small green Droid and an ! will appear. Push search hard key. Use volume rocker to select wipe data/cache then factory reset.


    Will that REMOVE it, or is it just a one-time boot into stock recovery?

    For the maderstock: Looks like I need to run that file from within Clockwork, but after it's done, then everything is back to the way it was before I started messing with ROMS and Bootstrapper, and what not. Correct?

    Wow, what an awesome one-step solution. I'll give this a try a little later today.

    As far as what has happened to my phone, I went from stock 2.3.34, installed Bootstrap Recovery, installed ApeX 1.3.0, upgraded to ApeX 1.3.1... then a month or so later I decided to restore my original backup to go back to stock 2.3.34. At that point, the restore froze halfway through... I rebooted my phone and it was as if it was a new setup in the stock firmware. I did a factory restore from inside the menus, and re-activated my phone, and that's where we're at today.

    So the long of it is... I don't really know what the consequences of the freezing during restore were, but everything SEEMS to be fine now, except that I want to get rid of the ClockworkRecovery so that I can bring the phone back to Verizon and ask for a replacement under warranty.

    No, there are some commands in that thread you run in terminal emulator or root explorer, it is in the second post

    You can try to remove bootstrap and unroot, sometimes that works, sometimes not, there may be traces of root left (like superuser). The .340 update.zip is almost like an SBF.

    I think I will go with the maderstock route. Seems the most likely to work for me, and remove any other residual issues as well. I will update here later if I have any problems.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Thank you. I sbf'd the droid x but it kept locking up on me so I couldn't get into the settings to wipe the cache. Your reply was exactly what I needed. All is good now. I wish this would have been part of the RFD lite 4.9 instructions. It would have saved me hours. Thanks again
