method to unroot orange uk desire.



download this nand backup

download the official update

extract the nand backup and delete the file 'recovery.img'

edit the file nandroid.md5 in wordpad (not notepad) and remove the line with recovery.img in it.

rename the official update to 'update.zip'

place the directory '2010-09-26.13.31.55' in the directory /nandroid/ht##########/ on your sdcard

place update.zip on your sdcard.

reboot phone into recovery and restore nand 2010-09-26.13.31.55

turn of check for signiture and flash update.zip.

follow on screen insructions to reboot and your done.




if you dont have the directory /nandroid/ht##########/ make a nand backup on your phone and it wil appear. ######### will be replaced by your phone id.


Dont blame me if you kill your phone doing this.


this worked for me with amonra recovery. probably work with clockwork too..not tried because my phone is on its way for repair now


thanks ste1164 for providing the nand and having the balls to try this first.
