I ended up stuck to only in recovery and wanted to flash CM.
You can get it here:
That's where ROM Manager gets it from.
What are you using to flash ROMS? SPRecovery or ROM Manager?
I'd try Bekits and Chevy's Kernels as well. Kernels just don't play well on every ROM and device. There is no rhyme or reason to it. What works for me won't necessarily work for you and vice versa.
You have to run a few kernels LV, MV, Bekit, P3, Chevy to find what works. As you already know back-up is your best friend.
Im just about to give up on all this.
OK so I now restored SPRecovery, I then via SPRecovery wiped (factory, cache partition) 3 times.Then I installed CM as a update.zip file.
It installed and some of my app's are in the dock so I have to believe the device did not totally wipe.
Another day I did not have my device or a phone...
Maybe I should move my # back to my Storm2, I feel beat.
Seriously, install Rom Manager, it'll make your life sooooo much easier, especially to find a kernel that works well for you. Unfortunately, it's device-dependant... Like it was stated earlier, what works for one won't work for all, you'll have to play with different ROMs and kernels to find out what works best for you. I've found that of the bekit kernels, 1.2GHz LV works perfectly fine with low heat and decent battery life, but higher speeds either cause FCs or boot loops.
I just flashed a p3droid kernel this morning, but sucked down most of my battery dealing with a contact issue that caused me to be constantly syncing for over an hour, so while the temp is great, I dunno about battery.
But with ROM Manager, it's a piece of cake for me to make Nandroid backup right before flashing a new kernel, if it doesn't work, I just reboot into Clockword, restore the backup, and then try a different kernel... All while I'm at work and not paying any attention to it!
Some of my app's did in-fact install this time because I was wondering if I was interfering with the install of my app's tot he point where possibly I was installing app's that Google restore was attempting to do or was.
My system is so lagged its not funny, and I keep trying to re-flash the rom....
Anyway it seems like the Google restore has installed part of my app's as I shared earlier.
My question is will it restart and continue to install the rest or more?
is there a way to get one of my file managers into the device system without having to go into market before I know if the restore is complete or now?
My market experience has been VERY VERY poor lately.
EDIT: I am also seeing that app's that have downloaded and are installed are still showing in the market as still being downloaded and or installed.
Yet they are in the dock and working...
Does this help with what is going on or what I need to do?

I use Titanium Backup to back up all my apps and data before a wipe and use that to pull it back in. I dunno if it'll resume after a reboot, but the market will act like it's already installed whole it's doing that process.
