Reverting an overly tweaked Droid.
Greetings everyone! Long time follower of Android Central here and a daily checker on blogs. I have a question I know you will all be able to help me with no problem. I have just received my D2 from Motorola (they hook up us vzw empl) and I have the predecessor (1st gen droid) which is pretty modded out that I would like to give to a family member. However, after a factory reset through clockwork recovery, I am getting market app FCs like crazy.
Here is what were working with:
"jdflg" 1ghz low voltage kernel
What does a guy gotta do to get things back to stock? Because i an unable to get into the market (Because of the immediate FC) I cant seem to get rom manager on there to Download and reinstall the stock recovery image, hence being in a bind.
I am semi-familiar with RSDlite...Well, Ive rooted many a droid1 with it anyways, besides that no further experience. Is this a tool I will need to utilize to get things back to defaults? Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read this and provide me with some answers. Take care everyone.

Here is a link to the stock 2.2 OTA update.
[ROM STABLE] Android 2.2 FRG01 (Clean, Untouched, Virgin) - Android Forums
You shouldn't have to use RDSlite for anything...just download ROM, place on root of SD card, wipe data and cache, then install ROM. You will have to do it manually (boot into recovery) since you can't seem to get any apps (ROM Manager) to work without FC.

TC, if you're already running cyanogenmod then you have to have Clockworkmod recovery. If you backed up any of your past ROMS you can access clockworkmod by rebooting your phone while holding power button and X. Then you should be able to access recovery. You can also turn on USB and copy a ROM over you're having issues doing so while the phone is fully on.

the ROM manager that I have keeps prompting me for an update in order to proceed installing the stock rom, which then brings me to the market, inadvertantly leading me to a FC by the market. The previous backups that I had i have wiped from my sd card, not thinking i would run into FC problems after a factory reset...
I am going to try to download the 2.2 Stock image from a mirror on a laptop and move it over to the device via usb and see if clockwork will allow me to manually install. Thanks for all of your help and i will post and update on my progress.

this link is a master file. it will give you a stock recovery & a stock rom, just put it on the root of your sd card & install as usual for your current recovery
here is the original thread about it
