    Install a backup without rooting.

    I have messed up my phone and had to sbf back to scratch. Then I have to run the Droid 3 rooter, get it set up on stock, and then root, and download bootstrapper. I'm wondering if there is a faster way.

    If I've got a stable back up and have to sbf back to stock, is there a way to load a rooted back up without actually being rooted?

    I'm assuming you have a Droid x. If your on froyo (2.2.1) then just use z4 root and grab the Droid 2 bootstrap. Then bootstrap recovery and restore the back up.

    Copy and paste d2 bootstrap and whichever app you use to restore apps over to your sd card. Then when you sbf, don't activate the phone. Start in the top left corner of the phone (when the green android appears) and touch each corner in a clockwise direction. Then root, install bootstrap and restore a backup.

    NO, you need to be rooted to run root apps which are used to restore rooted backups.

    And always remember to read, read, read, and read some more!
