H Boot image wiped my phone. Please help with restore!
Last Sunday I rooted my phone, changed the boot animation, removed City ID and Tweet/Peep, and installed wireless tethering.
Today I decided to apply s-off and put back the original boot/recovery loader so I can get the OTA update.
I downloaded what was supposed to be the boot loader. It was a pb311mg.zip file. It put in the boot loader but it also wiped my phone. I wasn't expecting that.
I have Nandroid and Titanium backups. Which do I restore to get all my apps and settings back?
So I think I should have just had a zipupdate file. I guess I need to reflash unrevoked3, run a full Nandroid restore, and then a full Titanium restore. Just need verification.

To get the OTA you need to be unroot with a stock recovery. If you were rooted to get back to stock that pb31img will wipe the phone. Nothing you can do about it. Nanodroid won't help as to use it you have to have clockwork recovery. And for titanium I can't say as i don't use it.
I reflashed with unrevoked and ran a Nandroid restore. That put everything back. Then I found a link to a proper ...img.zip file that only had the stock boot loader in it. I now have root with s-off and the stock .79 boot loader. I was told I should be good for the OTA now.
If you have a stock recovery you should be alright.
