Hey,

Why do you wanna go back to stock?
For warranty?
How did you root/hack your device? I guess AAHK? You can use that to get back to stock as well.
Otherwise get a fitting RUU for your device and run it.

Yes, for warranty (If my device have an problem).
I root it with AAHK.
Is this really safe and stock or are they files on the device with an root info?

It's safe and there are no traces left.
But trust me You could give your phone back to warranty with all those stuff installed
Had once an issue with my HD2, the guy at the story did not even know how to get into bootloader...he just said: okay, its defective, get your DHD and you'll be fine :P

Sometimes the store sent devices to the service and than they check these things in the bootloader.
That's why i'm asking.

Is there a stockrom as a zipfile instead of a RUU?
I'd like to revert via SDcard.
(because of an USBbrick / hardwarefailure)

Download the RUU.exe, open it via WinZip or something similar and get the rom.zip out of it.
(Or simply run it till it shows the manual, then get into your temp folder and you'll find the rom.zip there).
Rename it to PD98IMG.zip, push it to the root of your SD and your good to go

Hi. Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunatly it didn't help me very well yet.
Winzip doesn't seem to be able to open my downloaded RUU files. (neither does winrar)
And if i just execute the exe file i don't see any option to copy it to a temporary folder.
