Normally I would make a video on how to do this, but I’m not through with CyanogenMod on my phone yet. I’m still incredibly impressed with it and actually don’t plan on removing it until the official Android 2.1 update rolls out. And to tell you the truth, this thing might be better than the official 2.1 update that will someday arrive on our devices.
If you missed our post on how to install the new CyanogenMod for the Droid, head over here for the video tutorial.
Here are the instructions for removal and returning to stock 2.0.1…
1. Install the DroidMod Updater and open it.
2. When prompted, install (flash) SPRecovery.
3. Then select ROM option for Android 2.0.1 (stock).
4. Your phone will reboot back to stock 2.0.1, but you’ll be missing some things.
5. Reboot your phone again, this time into stock recovery mode.
Hold “X” and press power. Release “X” and power when an exclamation mark shows up. Then press the volume up and camera buttons at the same time.
6. Choose option to wipe cache/data.
7. Reboot phone and you should be stock with no root.
*Note* – You will have to reactivate your phone. This is essentially like starting over with a brand new phone and all of your settings will be lost. You may want to consider a backup app before even installing Cyanogen.
