Guys I need some help. I screwed up my friends droid X.

This morning he tried to download the OTA 2.2
previously we rooted the device with the one-click bluetooth root.
Then removed some very basic bloatware by renaming it to .bak
this morning he tried the OTA twice and it failed.
So i grabbed the phone adb'ed into it and ran su then mv *.bak *.apk

All the apps disappeared.
I rebooted into the recovery and did a firmware reset. Then rebooted again,
now the phone shows the M logo, then does the droid eye, but when i gets to the 'droid' logo it just blinks.

Any help would be IMMENSELY appreciated. I've had a few android devices (have a nexus one now and a g1 before this) and have never had any issues like this before.

Flashed 2.1 (SBF) using RSD Lite 4.7 + Patch

everything is back to normal

Downloading OTA 2.2, hopefully everything will work

Haha, I ran that command to thinking it would rename all my files back and it ended up wiping everything in my system directory. Luckily I had a nandroid backup to restore from.

You mind if I ask where you got the update.zip for the OTA? I've been looking for it (in the wrong places I guess).
