Restoring the Streak 7 using NVFlash

This will bring your device back to the unrooted 2.2.2 stock ROM. This has only been tested by the OP (me) on a T-Mobile 4G version. If you use this on other models, I cannot guarantee it's usefulness.

(Windows Only Instructions) If you’re a Linux user, you should be able to 'translate' this yourself.

This is for those who cannot use fastboot or adb. If you can successfully use these tools, DO NOT use NVFlash. You will lose all your data on your device. Do not proceed with these instructions if you are not expecting to lose all personal data on the device.

Step 1) APX Drivers – To work in NVFlash mode you need to install the drivers for the nvidia boot-recovery device. Power off your device and disconnect it from the computer. Hold down the Volume up & down buttons while plugging in the USB cable. (Or leave the USB cable attached and hold the pinhole ‘power off’, hold down the volume Up & Down and release the pinhole ‘power off’.) (The volume button seems like a rocker switch, but you can hold down both sides at once)

Your computer should now recognize the Streak 7 as an APX device. Manually install it using the nvidia boot-recovery drivers.

Step 2) Install NVFlash. For ease of function simply create a folder on your C:\ drive called ‘nvflash’. Download the nvflash zip and extract it to the nvflash folder.

Step 3) Download the 13 img files that make up the original partitions of the device. Files p2.img through p14.img. Put these files in the C:\nvflash folder. ***You can skip the 14.img file (Don't put it in the NVFlash folder) if you want to attempt to keep your original internal SD Card data, but again, no guarantees.

Step 4) Launch (double-click) the Restore.bat file from the C:\nvflash folder. This batch command will begin copying the partitions to the device. Wait patiently as your device is being restored.

Step 5) Once all of the partitions have been written, use the pinhole ‘power off’ button next to the SD card to power off the device. Now power it back on normally to enjoy your restored Streak 7.

If you have trouble with any of the links or corrupted files, please pm me or reply to this thread.

That's all I can do folks. Ran out of free space on my free storage site.

*** Update *** If you are still stuck at boot logo, check to see if you can get into fastboot mode, if so,
finish restoring with the fastboot method.

************* Also, I recently used this method to restore from Honeycomb. I too was again stuck at the Dell logo. However, I was able to use the recovery menu (Vol Up + Power) and do a factory reset and was fine from there.

There may still be an issue with some units restarting as if no files had been written. If this is your experience, please let me know and I will start a new thread for that issue. Good luck!

Figured it might fail. Its the biggest one and it dropped a few times in the transfer. Will give a heads up when it is available. Might not be till the morning.

So- I have gone from a corrupted system that would boot with no fastboot or recovery mode into an operating environment that was unusable due to repeated force closures. Now thanks to these files I have been able to restore my system and finally apply Steve's 2.2.2 rooted with clockwork. Thanks to Illdill, Steve and everyone on the forum!

You will need the p11 for a successful restore. p14 may not be required as some have had success without it. Keep trying for the p11 file. It may be an issue with the online storage site I chose, or if you could use a download manager, that may help.
