Hello, I am living in canada and when i looked at the android restore roms there isn't one for the version of android that was stock on my machine. I am currently using a custom rom, is it possible to restore to that if I needed to switch back to android? Thank you, David Waldie

Yes but you need to get the custom rom image and flash it again.

Most ARM devices are impossible to brick, so it's just a case of getting the right image and flashing it. Some require a window machine to use Livesuit image burner. Other allow for Linux command line 'fastboot' to flash.

thank you so much. I think one more question because I am a little confused. Does the ubuntu touch leave the clockwork recovery mod or does it wipe it clean? If it leaves it can I manually boot into the recovery and flash a rom like I would normally?

dwaldie, I responded to your question in another thread before seeing this one. Ubuntu did not touch my clockwork recovery, or any of my files. I flashed my rom like I normally would.
