We withdraw the claimed detection of SN 2008D (XRF080109) in NGC 2770 by the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in the L band observed on 2008 Jan 20, as reported by us in ATel #1377. The reanalyzed map noise is 0.143 mJy at 1288.75 MHz. The three sigma upper limit to the SN flux in our revised analysis is 0.43 mJy. We thank Poonam Chandra for help with the reanalysis.
