    Need Stock for Warranty - Camera button Broken

    Howdy! Well I have been scouring the internet for a way to do this.... I had rubix custom rom on my DX. But now my camera button is broken, and so I cannot select anything in clockwork recovery. I am attempting to make my phone stock so that I can send it in to Motorola, since my warranty is still in for a few more weeks. I took it into VZW, the man worked some black magic behind the counter, and "restored" my phone, but not really. It still had Root and I'm not entirely convinced it is a stock rom, though it seems quite different (it may even be Gingerbread). I managed to rid myself of root through a command line emulator, but the phone still boots into Clockwork recovery, and I fear Moto will use this to not honor the warranty (understandable of course, but undesirable...).

    Is there a way to get stock recovery on there again without using the camera button?

    UI'm trying to think if you need the camerama button to sbf? I don't think you do cause you need to boot into bootlloader

    You can boot into the bootloader by holding both volume buttons then power until the screen flashes, no camera button. Also, can use the menu button in stock recovery instead of the camera button to do a factory reset after the sbf.

    So, you don't need the camera button to restore to stock.

    It worked! I'm at stock now. Thanks guys. I am continually impressed with the android modding community. (I mean, they make better roms than the manufacturers, jump through insane hurdles, and DON'T get paid. Wow)
